Forget spa gift baskets and breakfast in bed. As Saturday Night Live points out, all mom really wants for Mother's Day is E.L. James' erotic novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey" -- and time alone to read it.
The wildly popular book has already been dubbed "mommy porn," and has been roundly spoofed by everyone from mom bloggers to Ellen Degeneres. This weekend, SNL took on the phenomenon for the first time in a parody commercial for Amazon's Kindle.
The hilarious clip, featuring with cast members Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis and Vanessa Bayer, sends one very important message -- if you're going to gift mom with "Fifty Shades" this Mother's Day, be sure to give her a padlock for the door as well.
