'SNL' Strauss-Kahn Cold Open Shows IMF Chief's First Night At Rikers Island (VIDEO)

There's nothing us regular folk love more than seeing a ridiculously wealthy guy who thinks the rules don't apply to him have a bad time. So for the cold open of its season finale, 'SNL' took aim at Dominque Strauss-Kahn, the disgraced IMF chief who was until Friday being held without bail at Rikers Island.

Of course, since Strauss-Kahn is accused of attempted rape, it doesn't take too many guesses to figure out where this sketch is going to end up. But first, how about a carefully nuanced discussion of the tenuous nature of the European economy? You catch more flies with honey, after all.
