For reasons to do with my wife's desires we watch almost all television shows with the closed captions activated. Though this often ruins the timing of jokes and spoils dramatic moments in many a show, and I hate the way the captions intrude on screen space, I long ago chose to be annoyed & aggravated instead of lonely, so, c'est la vie.
Anyway, I bring that up only to explain how I discovered an excised, and potentially inflammatory, line from Robert Smigel's cartoon "Christmastime for the Jews" that premiered on last night's SNL. The line shown in the picture, "They can yank up all the prices" was replaced with lines about Quakers and Lakers. [Link plays replacement snippet of the song.]
I wonder by whom and for what reason was this line was killed?
UPDATE: Here's the whole video: Christmastime for the Jews.
