“Saturday Night Live” is joking about Atlanta’s traffic, accents and Southern cooking after Amazon named the city as one of 20 finalists for its second headquarters.

Not even Coca-Cola, Chick-fil-A and Waffle House escaped comedians’ jibes on the latest episode of “SNL.”

The episode also took aim at three other cities contending for the internet retail company’s business: Boston, Miami and Newark, N.J.

Amazon is deciding where to locate as many as 50,000 employees at a headquarters that would supplement its main campus in Seattle.
