Storyline

The host for the episode is Sally Kellerman, and the musical guest is Jimmy Cliff (his second appearance). The skits for this episode are as follows: For the Rocket Report, Charles Rocket goes to one of the parades being held to welcome home the Iran hostages. An Italian stand-up comedian performs in front of his family while a talent scout looks on. Contestants on a quiz show attempt to identify taboo subjects. A group of upper-class women one-up one another with social faux-pas stories. A new book of Iranian jokes let readers entertain their families and friends. During the Weekend Update, Eddie Murphy announces that since the Emancipation Proclamation was never actually signed, people should go out and claim their very own black person while they can. A mother and father explain the facts of life in extremely graphic detail to their son. A councilor at a fat camp cracks the whip over her charges, until a member of the audience stops the skit to complain about the unfair portrayal ... Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
