The "Saturday Night Live" cast must be so frustrated that this whole Duggar scandal happened after they closed the season. Cue Funny or Die to pick up the slack with a new parody mocking Josh Duggar's parents, Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar, for how they handled the allegations that their son molested five girls (including his sisters) as a teenager.
In the 2 minute 22-second video, labeled "The Duggars Respond To Sexual Abuse Scandal," the actress playing Michelle first introduces herself as "baby factory for the Duggar family," then "Jim Bob"notes that, with more kids than an NBA team, they were bound to have one troubled child.
Michelle: "The point is we handled it, OK? When we were first told about Josh's mistake we did the right thing and we ignored the girl that came forward."
Jim Bob: "Girls lie all the time, it's what they do. One of our daughters, J-something -- I don't care -- once told us there was a frog in one of our 16 industrial washing machines..."
Michelle: "Here's the thing, some other girls did come forward, and some of them were our daughters. But, honestly, if you ask me which one I don't know. The brunette with the curly hair? We did the right thing and immediately waited three years before we called the authorities."
Fake Michelle also noted, "It's been terrible for us. And Josh. But those are the only three people affected by these mistakes." The couple said Josh has moved on in his life, and honored him for his work in warning Americans about the dangers of homosexuality. "Homosexuals prey on children and they do not deserve to walk on God's great earth!" They said they've been dealing with this in the best way they know how -- getting pregnant again.
It's pretty funny. Child molestation is no laughing matter, but absurdity and hypocrisy are what satire is for. Meanwhile, TLC has pulled "19 Kids and Counting" from the air.
