    SNL’s ‘Wells For Boys’ Gives Us Hilarious Gift Ideas for Sensitive Kids

    For those of us that grew up with flare for the dramatic, SNL‘s Wells For Boys nails our sensitive side, and might make a few of us think ‘too soon’.  Emma Stone hosted, and her rant at the end of this short was one of the funniest moments of the night.

Most notably, Wiig brought back Surprise Lady for a hilarious Thanksgiving surprise, and once again played a terrible round of Secret […]
