    • Amy Poehler: Security in the New York City subway system was raised on Thursday after reports of specific threats involving bomb-laden baby carriages and briefcases. The extra security has made commuting especially difficult for business babies. (Picture of a baby standing on a subway platform, wearing a suit and carrying a briefcase. Some applause. Amy is clearly amused by the picture.)

    • Horatio Sanz: Fearing a religious backlash because of the title, Sony decided to not release the new Albert Brooks film “Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World.” For similar reasons, Sony has also decided not to release the film “Deuce Bigalow: Osama Bin Gigolo.”

    Trivia (2)

    • In the actual "Wilson Brothers Funeral Home" sketch, when Rachel Dratch's character was "dead" you could plainly see her turn her head to avoid laughing.

    • A technical gaffe occured during the original live broadcast in which the opening frame from the "Wilson Brothers Funeral Home" sketch appears onscreen for five seconds, interupting the "Taco Town" ad spoof.
