Betty White- “Facebook is a huge waste of time” (But It Did Get Her On SNL!!)

No doubt this is all over the net but… it is Betty White, it is Sunday morning and.. laughing is good.

If you have been living under a rock here’s what happened. A Facebook campaign to get Betty White to host Saturday Night Live built up enough steam that SNL actually invited her to host. At 88 1/2 White is still wicked funny and and comedic timing that is unparalleled.

She used the monologue to thank Facebook for making it possible for her to host… and then promptly cut Facebook down to size for being a huge waste of time. Best line- “In my day we didn’t have Facebook… we had phonebook… and we didn’t waste an afternoon on it.”

    That’s funny. She is hilarious. I’m sorry I missed it Saturday night. I’ll have to try and catch it all later.
    Thanks. Golden Girls was great.
