Saturday Night Live dove full-on into the Trayvon Martin case this weekend. Of course, there's not a whole lot humor to be found in the specifics of the case, so instead the show lampooned CNN's Piers Morgan, Miami Marlins manager Ozzie Guillen (played by host Josh Brolin), and Florida in general ("Crazy laws are what Florida's all about. It's the number one reason maniacs come to Florida, after Disney World.")
After the head of the board of tourism explains all of Florida's crazy laws, like "See You Later Alligator" (where you can legally feed someone to an alligator after not saying goodbye), Brolin comes on as Guillen who obviously ends up pissing off Miami's large Jewish population.
