Confederate Camp Servants on Saturday Night Live

Bonus material compliments of The Onion. [H/T to Bjorn Skaptason]

A number of my Civil War peeps on Facebook are passing around a Comedy Central skit about the Civil War, which I posted here a few years back.  To return the favor I give you another classic from Saturday Night Live.  Not surprisingly, I love the reference to the camp servant, who makes it into the picture.  “He’s been a big help.”  Enjoy.
