A secret indulgence to share:
« on: May 06, 2007, 05:13:02 PM »
I love Stephanie Weir from Mad TV.

I never saw her do parodies on ANS, until I found it by accident today.

These were done way before ANS died.  LOL

Stephanie Weir is terrific. Talk about art imitating life imitating art imitating...ah, well..  you know.

The characterization was spot on, regardless.
