    John Krasinski And Pete Davidson Kissed On "SNL" And The Internet Is Divided

    Move over, Madonna and Britney.

    On Saturday, SNL returned after its holiday hiatus with John Krasinski as host and Machine Gun Kelly as the musical guest.

    As a ~media professional~, I'm obviously very aware that John Krasinski has done many impressive things, like writing and directing A Quiet Place, starring in Jack Ryan, and marrying Emily Blunt.

    But when I tuned into the show at 11:30 p.m., I took one look at my screen and said, "Hey, look! It's Jim from The Office."

    The show clearly anticipated this reaction because they created an entire skit around it, featuring various cast members posing as audience members who just wanted to know why their beloved Jim was suddenly buff and where his wife, Pam, was.

    John takes questions from the audience about The Office and…actually just The Office.

    It was a cute, nostalgic four minutes, but it wasn't until the 4:07 mark when things took a turn for the...amorous. Namely, when Pete Davidson joined John on stage...

    Look, maybe I've just been alone in quarantine for far too long, but their lil' lip lock made me feel some type of way!!

    And I wasn't the only one. The internet was in a goddamn tizzy.

    Many people were very into it!

    I turned on SNL to hopefully see some MGK/Pete Davidson action and instead got to see Pete Davidson kissing John Krasinski. This is fabulous.

    Though, that being said, some others pointed out that using two straight men kissing for laughs...well...isn't funny.

    SNL this week, last week, every week, always and forever: “The joke is it’s two guys! They kissed! Get it?!?! It’s hilarious! THEY’RE GUYS! Hahahahahaha”

    If your TV show thinks a same-sex kiss is edgy, it might need to A) climb out of 2003; B) get new writers; or C) both. #SNL

    Am I the only one who feels like one of the lowest hanging fruits of comedy is guy x guy kissing? And maybe we should move past it?
