I found an April 14 skit on "Saturday Night Live" titled "Hanukkah Harry Saves Easter" to be unfunny and extremely offensive not only to the Jewish people but to Christians as well. Most "jokes" were exceedingly anti-Semitic as well as stereotypical of Christians who were portrayed as Jew haters and drunkards.

The entire concept of the segment was utterly preposterous and inane. Passover and Easter are sacred in their own right and if we are going to mix the two, let's at least be funny, not irresponsible.
