There was a lot to laugh about on the April 14 episode of Saturday Night Live, but one of the most inevitable -- and hilarious -- jokes of the night was a sketch that poked fun at Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's recently outed romance.
In a parody of CNN's Piers Morgan Tonight, Taran Killam (as the English talk-show host) presides over an episode dedicated to the Trayvon Martin case, with a slate of uninformed celebrities like Ice-T (played by Fred Armisen) to weigh in on George Zimmerman's arrest in the racially charged murder.
The highlight of the sketch occurs toward the end, when Morgan welcomes Kardashian and West to the show for their thoughts on Zimmerman's arrest -- after six weeks -- on the charge of second-degree murder.
"Forty-six days!" Kardashian (played as always by Nasim Pedrad) whined. "That's like half a marriage!"
After a line about how Kanye knows how it feels to be a "black man inside" -- to which Kim responds with a nearly identical (and much naughtier) sentiment, Morgan asks the high-profile couple: "Is your relationship for real, or is it just another publicity stunt?"
"I love this woman," Jay Pharoah's West tells Morgan. "As I said earlier this week, she's my Beyonce."
Pedrad's Kardashian adds: "Only without the singing, or the dancing or the acting. I'm a zero-threat!"
