The best thing about Zach Galifianakis hosting SNL is that you know it's going to be WEIRD. Like, unicorns tripping on ketamine weird. Thus, on Saturday night Galifianakis hosted SNL for the third time in his comedy career, obviously hyping up the third and final Hangover movie. It had all the hallmarks of a typical Galifianakis performance: jokes about geeky Game of Thrones fans who may or may not live in their mother's basements, racists M&Ms, and flat out calling people who wear New Balance sneakers fat f*cks.
In otherwords, it was delightful.

Mike Bloomberg soda ban and WNBA jokes never get old!
And of course, a GIF of the always-entertaining scroll:
Zach Galifianakis Monologue
Brilliant point about trying to stump Google. “I like to stump Google. Like the day I Googled ‘how many Mexicans live in North Korea?’ Google didn’t know.” Hey look! I found out how many candles Dave Navarro owns.
Game of Game of Thrones
If you're a Game of Thrones fanboy geek, this was by far the highlight of the night. Would SNL even have material if game shows were never invented?
Jennifer Aniston Look-A-Like Competition
Amazing that Friends has been off the air and in syndication almost a decade (nearly my entire adult life) and we're still making jokes about it. That's just shows the deep emotional power of Rembrandt's songwriting.

Next election cycle, I vote Bill Hader to be a political commentator:
"I used to spend so much time of my life looking down at my phone, and now, thanks to Google Glass, the phone is up here and I can use it without being rude or distracting,"
She keeps getting more and more ridiculous...
Racist M&M Store Employee:
Racist Jim would be a red M&M. Everyone knows red M&Ms are the most discriminatory:
The most Zach Galifianakis-esque skit all night. Just one long slow-burn. Hey look, Jon Hamm!
I thought about buying a pair of New Balance's the other day. Now I feel like an old, sad fat fuck.
