“Often Hader can be seen suppressing fits of laughter (known as breaking), as some of the more outlandish descriptions are new to him. Hader, on late-night TV interviews, said that this happens with such frequency because changes are often made to the script up until the live show, and frequently Hader doesn’t see the final cue cards until the live broadcast. As a result, some of the more outrageous things that Stefon says are relatively or completely new to Hader. ‘I have not gotten through a single Stefon update without breaking,’ Hader says. ‘I’m still working on it.’”—
Basically, Hader’s seeing some of the jokes for the first time as he’s on-air reading them.
Knowing this makes the bits 10 times funnier to me.
I had assumed this is what was happening. His reaction is way more fun than Fallon’s was (the only other SNL actor I remember breaking often on camera). Fallon’s reaction was like he was in on an inside joke that was being played out at someone else’s expense. Hader’s is straight up delight in the ridiculousness of what Stefon is saying.

“The symptoms for the flu—fever, nausea, vomiting—are very similar to those of Ebola. That means the more people who get the flu this year, the more people are going to panic about potential cases of Ebola, cases that the vast, vast majority of the time will prove false. Reducing the number of people who get the flu will help quell that panic.”—
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea are occasional (rather than typical) symptoms of the flu. Most flu patients never experience them, and of those who do, most are children.
The flu is not a stomach bug. There is not such thing as a “stomach flu.” The flu is essentially a brutal cold on steroids. It gives you a sore throat, a stuffy nose, a cough, and on top of that, chills, fever, extreme fatigue, and incapacitating headaches.
Still, it’s not an excuse not to get vaccinated. The flu will kill many, many, many more people than Ebola in Europe and the U.S. this year, as it does every year. It probably won’t be you, if you’re strong and healthy. But if you catch it, you’ll help spread it to people who may not be so lucky. So stop freaking out about ebola and get your flu shot.

There are a lot of days I wished we all lived in the same house so we could hug each other in times of trouble, take our fights out to the hot tub area, get super drunk and watch bad television, and so we could actually talk to each other.
Then I go look at gifs and think about other things.
Also the yelling match until one of us says something so stupid the rest laugh and the fight is over time for sexy.
You’re basically describing the Holiday Inn lobby at CHSH.
Academie Opus Caseus, the one-of-a-kind educational facility in France created by MonS Fromager-Affineur (read my previous posts about AOC here), has teamed up with Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Co, in California, to create a unique educational opportunity:
The course, open to cheese professionals, will cover the life of Cheese from Pasture to Plate: students will have an intimate overview of how cheese is made, aged, prepared for market, and what consumers can do with cheese once they bring it home. Academie instructors Laurent Mons and Susan Sturman and the Giacomini family and staff will provide instruction, observation opportunities and hands-on experience in all phases of the curriculum. We will visit nearby Cowgirl Creamery to observe lactic-set cheese making and to discuss cheese merchandising with guest speakers, Peggy Smith and Sue Conley.
I felt bad for him so I let Jack out early this year. Now he’s wreaking havoc. He goes after all the wethers and his new thing is bashing his head into whatever gate is closest to Aaron the sheep. I was hoping that the difference in breed would make it so Jack didn’t act like an asshole toward…
