SNL Riffs On Admiral Theatre Strip Club Toy Drive

How many Saturday Night Live: Weekend Update commentators does it take to properly mock a Chicago strip club's charity toy drive? We told you last week about Admiral Theatre's "Lap Dances for the Needy" campaign, in which a patron could receive a free lap dance for donating a toy. Well, the news story prompted last night's SNL host (and former Weekend Update anchor) Jimmy Fallon to challenge current anchor Seth Meyers to a "Joke-off." They were joined by their respective former co-anchors Amy Poehler and Tina Fey.

So which team wins? We think Second City alumna Fey won it herself with, "More than just your heart will grow three sizes that day."

By the way, it appears the Admiral Theatre's toy drive ended Saturday night.
