When Japanese Officials arrived at the home of Tokyo's oldest citizen, Sogen Kato, to celebrate his 111th birthday, they found the man had actually been dead for 30 years. The mans family had been living with his mummified corpse and benefitting from his widower's pension payments.

A timeless festive piece of TV. Imagine if you really heard this in your car on NPR while driving. What a hoot. Funny that whenever SNL is hosted by Alec Baldwin there are never any free "stand by" seats. All ticket holders show up knowing it will be a great show. The writers like when he is there (and Chris Walken, Tom Hanks) since they know they can write just about anything and the host will go for it. They get to be particularly irreverent. Works for me :-)

".... we boarded vessels that decreased in excellence..."
