Last night’s season finale of Saturday Night Live featured many great moments, including Courtney Barnett’s absolutely killer two-song debut and The Lonely Island’s new love song “Finest Girl (Bin Laden Song)”. However, the night’s standout moment came in the form of an incredible spoofing of Dead Poets Society in which Fred Armisen plays Mr. Bunting, a fired English teacher whose students salute him as he exits the classroom. Without giving too much away, things take an unexpected, gory twist.
