A doctor is interviewed about a condition called quintlexia, which he suffers from. John Belushi announces that he's retiring from show business to train for the Olympic decathlon. During the Weekend Update, Muhammad Ali announces that he's making his own Rocky-style movie, and Emily Litella wonders why anyone cares about endangered feces. Al Franken and Tom Davis report the news live from World War III. Three women suffer from Gidget's Disease, causing intolerable cuteness. Leonard Pinth-Garnell presents 'The Millkeeper', a Bad Playhouse Production. ... Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>
