In an episode that was chock-full of cameos by former cast mates, December 17's "Weekend Update" featured one of the biggest thrills of the night, a head-to-head joke-off pitting former co-anchors Tina Fey and Jimmy Fallon against Amy Poehler and (current anchor) Seth Meyers.
After reporting on a toy drive by a local strip club, Meyers quipped that patrons could "give a toy to Charity, and Charity will give it to the manager." But not a moment after, Fallon rolled up to the desk, chiding Meyers for his lackluster performance in the face of such a meaty story. Challenges to a joke off were then made and accepted, and before you knew it, "Update" alums Tina Fey and Amy Poehler had joined the fray.
A dozen or so one-liners later, television magic had been made.
