While the other O.J. Simpson thread deals with the serious aspects of the murder, this video is an example of at least one comedian's take on what was going on at the time.

For those who were around then, it might be nostalgic. For those who either were not yet born or just weren't interested in the "circus" surrounding the matter, this will give you a little taste of what captivated so many back in the mid-1990s.

Naw.... He got fired for accidentally saying that special "F" word live, on the Air. Huge fine from the FCC followed. He knew he was going to get fired over it. Immediately after he realized what he said on SNL's fake newscast, his next words were, "Tune in next week when our biggest story will be how I got fired."

Every story I've heard said the same thing, that it was because of the OJ jokes, although I've heard that it was the writer of those that got fired and Norm quit in solidarity.
