Tuesday Top Ten: Controversial SNL Moments

I was out of town for most of the last week, and catching up on work and twerking has left me with little time to compose my own Tuesday Top Ten this week.  But, I did come across this article, listing what the author believes to be the eleven most controversial Saturday Night Live moments.  The list is pretty heavy on recent moments.  Noticeably absent:  the sketch from one of the first years where Chevy Chase and Richard Pryor play a racially charged word association game; when Andrew Dice Clay hosted in 1990 and cast member Nora Dunn boycotted; the members of Nirvana making out with each other during the ending credits; Ashlee Simpson's lip-syncing; Paul Westerberg of The Replacements shouting "fuck" in 1986; Elvis Costello and The Attractions defying Lorne Micheal by singing the anti-media "Radio Radio."
