LMAO That's hilarious

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Yes and no. Nora Dunn played Martina.

Has there been a sketch the other way round I mean Martina making fun of Chris that only would have been fair. Did SNL not know that Martina only did wear her glasses on the court. After seeing a couple of documentaries I really know how unfair Martina was treated by especially the americans so I cannot find this funny at all and believe me I do have a sense of humour.

You know, you're absolutely right; we Americans did treat Martina unfairly. We screwed her when we granted her political asylum. We screwed her when we let her keep her prize money and play doubles with whomever she wanted. We REALLY screwed her when we didn't immediately throw her in an insane asylum when she admitted she was homosexual.

It was okay, funniest part for me were the Piano upstaging and the Lostboys inspired ending.

Thanks
