Sorry, "Rolling Stone," but you're wrong.
Back in February, the magazine took a stab at ranking all 141 current and former cast members of "Saturday Night Live" and put our buddy Jim Breuer at #139. There were a lot of names that we felt deserved to be higher or lower on the list but no pick gave us a harsher "WTF" face than when we saw where Breuer fell.
Maybe we're biased because Jim is a great friend of the show. Maybe we have dissimilar tastes in comedy than the gentleman who stacked this ranking. Or maybe it's about f*cking time to give Breuer the credit he deserves for his work on "SNL."
Whatever the case may be, we went and found five of Jim's most underrated sketches – ones that shouldn't be forgotten but that even the biggest fan might not remember.
There's no changing the list but maybe, just maybe, we can change "Rolling Stone's" mind about how hard Breuer brought the funny to "SNL."
1. FOOD, SEX OR CARS
There's just something hilarious about comparing Connie Chung to a plate of potato skins and a Pontiac Bonneville (sorry, Connie.) Breuer and Will Ferrell go head-to-head in this playfully sexist game show parody whose joke somehow never gets old.
2. SYLVESTER STALLONE GETS A MONOLOGUE PEP TALK FROM MICKEY
In 1997, Sylvester Stallone wanted the world to know that he's not just some mook who doesn't have a thought in his head. His old-school trainer Mickey from "Rocky" however advises that he stick to what earned him his success: acting like, "a crazy, greasy, Italian tank."
3. FLORIDA BUGS
We can't help but think of the classic "SNL" Killer Bees when we see the back-and-forth sway of antennae on Breuer's head in this sketch from 1996. Former presidential candidate Steve Forbes gets a mouthful from a couple of giant Florida bugs who want vengeance after winding up on the windshield of his car.
4. TOMMY THE ASSISTANT BEATS HIMSELF UP
Stupid! Stupid! Stupid! Jim's character Tommy is constantly screwing up at work and beating himself up about it. Literally. In this sketch, Breuer gets to showcase how he can take a punch to the face, even if it comes from his own fists.
5. MRS. KOGEN, THE WORLD'S MOST NAÏVE MOTHER
A cross between the Church Lady and Linda from "Bob's Burgers," Breuer's character Mrs. Kogen whole-heartedly believes that her son Steven is a good boy, even though their house is filled with stolen TVs, drug paraphernalia and a couple of kidnap victims. When a police officer (Tom Arnold) shows up at her door, she explains that Steven isn't a criminal; he just likes to do a lot of "camping."
