SNL's turn to mock Atlanta

Taran Killam played Buford Calloway during Seth Myers' final "news" update on "Saturday Night Live," a "survivor" of the traffic nightmare that transpired last week in Atlanta over two inches of snow and ice.

And like Jon Stewart last week, "SNL" couldn't resist pulling out the Southern stereotypes. Killam's accent is straight from "Gone With the Wind." He called the snow "devil's dandruff," "New England clam powder" and "Obama's white friend."

"This is the South, Sethery," he said. "We are not equipped to deal with snow. I may have overreacted. When the storm started, I pre-emptively shot my neighbor."

The funniest line: "I went to the safest place I could find - the interstate," Killam.
