Iowa City got a shout-out on last night's Saturday Night Live midweek special -- but it was literally -- LITERALLY, Mr. Vice President -- a case of don't blink or you'll miss it.
For those unfamiliar with the bit: SNL's parody of "Fox and Friends" always concludes with a lengthy list of "corrections," scrolling by on screen at near-illegible speed. I say near-illegible because they are all actually written out and all absurd.
NBC kindly posts the full list after the fact. Item three last night: "Iowa City never elected Mayor McCheese. "
True enough. We did have a Mayor McDonald in the late 80s and early 90s. But John was in the glasses business, not the burger business.
