not even a cripple

Welp, we were actually searching for some great holiday cheer to bring to you, in the form of a classic SNL bit from the 80's: the Sweeney Sisters' Christmas - but for some reason, NBC hasn't gotten around to providing this clip to the public. Originally aired on December 20, 1986, this classic SNL episode (hosted by Bill Shatner) was full of great sketches, and was probably one of the best of that already-great-season which sparked SNL's resurgence in popularity from the late 80's to early 90's.
