No One Can Resist Them
December 19, 2013  | By Eric Gould
 
SNL has a grand tradition of sketches which come close to using curse words or sexual references – that aren’t. (The winner of that contest might be the one with Christopher Walken as Civil War Confederate Colonel Angus.) A close second is Alec Baldwin in his 1998 appearance as Pete Schweddy, proprietor of a local bakery guesting on a typically downbeat NPR cooking show. He’s got a whole selection of baked goodies that are simply shaped for hosts Margaret Jo McCullin and Terry Rialto (Molly Shannon and Ana Gasteyer) to sample. The sketch is part of SNL’s annual Christmas special tonight and is still outrageous, mostly for the trio’s straight delivery. –EG
