Poor Tom Hanks on the 5/6 episode of Saturday Night Live, he had to do a parody of Wheel of Fortune where the constestants can't figure out a simple phrase which was done a few years ago on MadTV with David Arquette. I am sure some other nerd is writing about this.
MADTV: Give me Liberty or Give me Death
SNL: By the skin on our teeth
This sketch ended with Tom Hanks hugging the three idiots and quitting, on MADTV Josh Meyers finds out there was a happy face instead of 'y' in liberty.
