Dark and Darker: SNL on ISIS

Saturday Night Live is in its 41st year, middle-aged now, but it still keeps up with the news.

Below is an SNL send-up of CNBC's Shark Tank show with a couple entrepreneurial chuckleheads from ISIS.  This aired several months ago.  Pretty funny.

Last Saturday, SNL revisited the theme with the juxtaposition of a loving father bidding goodbye to his daughter and violent ISIS recruiters.

It's well done, but are we supposed to laugh?  I don't know what to make of it.
