In honor of Saturday Night Live’s 100th Digital Short, I have compiled a list of MY top ten of all time! There are a few that I left off (“I’m on Boat”, “I Just Had Sex”, etc.) that are not as funny to me, but feel free to make your own top ten!!

10. “I Ran (So Far Away)” – Original Air Date: September 29, 2007
- The song/beat is actually quite good (to me) and Jake Gyllennhaal makes a cameo!
9. “Zach Drops by the Set” – Original Air Date: March 6, 2010
- Love Zach Galifianakis and his random appearances, especially with the Law & Order crew!
8. “Young Chuck Norris” – Original Air Date: January 21, 2006
- Great lyrics and ridiculousness with Andy Samberg as a Young Chuck Norris and Jason Sudeikis on vocals.
7. “Shy Ronnie” – Original Air Date: December 5, 2009 & “Shy Ronnie 2: Ronnie and Clyde” – Original Air Date: October 30, 2010
- I included this one because most people LOVE this one!
6. “Motherlover” – Original Air Date: May 9, 2009 & “3-Way (The Golden Rule)” – Original Air Date: May 21, 2011
- These “Dick in a Box” sequels are HIGH-larious! The outfits, the posing by Susan Sarandon and Patricia Clarkson as the “Mothers”, Lady Gaga’s appearance in the “3-Way”, and of course the lyrics!
5. “Body Fuzion” – Original Air Date: February 3, 2007
- I love all of these ladies and their spoof of 80’s workout videos!
4. “Jack Sparrow” – Original Air Date: May 7, 2011
- I have this on my workout playlist! Michael Bolton is super funny in this!
3. “Natalie Raps” – Original Air Date: March 4, 2006
- I think I am one of the few people who finds this one to be amazing! The lyrics and her ability to be a complete badass is impressive.
2. “Dick in a Box” – Original Air Date: December 16, 2006
- They really should have just asked Justin Timberlake to be a regular on the show. Everything he is a part of is pure genius!
1. “Lazy Sunday” – Original Air Date: December 17, 2005
- This was the second EVER digital short to air and to this day is still my favorite. I even have a “Mr. Pibb + Red Vines = Crazy Delicious” t-shirt! This helped to put Magnolia Bakery on the map and could possibly have started the cupcake craze that still continues. “Lazy Sunday” catapulted the digital shorts into the forefront of Saturday Night Lives of this generation of talent and it sucks that they will probably be done after this season with the rumored departure of Andy Samberg.
