Chevy Chase into phone] Wait, wait, wait, wait. Honey... you're talking too fast. What did she tell you? Yes... at the right moment. Yeah? Well, who yanks the beads out? I -- [he sees the camera] I gotta go! Good evening, I'm Chevy Chase, and you're not!

Our top story tonight: Generallissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.

In other news, based on a recent poll, 75 percent of Americans think marijuana eventually will be legal, while the other 25 percent said, 'What?  It's illegal?'

The Post Office announced that it is going to issue a stamp commemorating prostitution in the United States. It's a ten-cent stamp, but if you want to lick it, it's a quarter.

Weekend Update recognizes its obligation to present responsible opposing viewpoints to our CSR editorials. Here with her reply to a recent editorial is Emily Litella.  Emily?

Emily:  Thank you Cheddar.  I want to know, why is everybody going around mocking giraffes?  Giraffes are very sweet animals that don't hurt anybody.

Chevy: Okay... Now let's go to Rick for the latest Panther update.  Rick, what do you think the Panthers will do at 28?

Chevy: @That's really sticking your neck out there, Rick.  Thanks for the in-depth reporting.@  And that's the news. Good night, and have a pleasant tomorrow.
