Certainly a lot here to argue about. Most of their top 20 are poorly chosen. Barbara Streisand, Cowbell and Schwetty Balls are 6, 5, and 3, and none of those would make my top 10.

I never liked Mike Myers German sketch either (35) and wouldn't make my list at all. Sketches like the Ambiguously Gay Duo, Dana Carvey as Johnny Carson, and Da Bears Superfans would definitely move up to the top 25 in my list.

I don't remember specifics on this sketch. Was there something that made it significantly better than, say, Mr. No-Depth-Perception, or Middle-Aged Man?

They lumped every Weekend Update into one list entry? And it only made #65? Okaaay.

It's stupid, it's supposed to be funniest moments, but half of them are reappearing characters/sketches...Roxbury guys, Toonces etc.

I think Chris Farley's "I live in a van, down by the river" skit should be on that list.

My favorite didn't make the list. For some reason, I always loved the skit where Jim Carrey was a lifeguard and Will Farrell was trying to use the pool and the hot tub. That one cracks me up everytime I see it.
