Betty White hosted Saturday Night Live tonight, the result of months of campaigning by members of the Facebook page Betty White to Host SNL (please?)!. The Golden Girls star took the opportunity to both thank and ridicule her Facebook fans.
White commented in her monologue, “I really have to thank Facebook … I didn’t know what Facebook was, and now that I do know what it is, I have to say, it sounds like a huge waste of time. I would never say the people on it are losers, but that’s only because I’m polite. People say ‘But Betty, Facebook is a great way to connect with old friends.’ Well at my age, if I wanna connect with old friends, I need a Ouija Board. Needless to say, we didn’t have Facebook when I was growing up. We had phonebook, but you wouldn’t waste an afternoon with it.”
