Spider-Man: No Way Home has already conquered the box office and the hearts of fans across the globe, but now it’s time for it to take over memes, starting with a tentacle-less Doc Ock.

“Evaluating an entire season of Saturday Night Live is tough. With some 180 sketches (not to mention monologues, Weekends Update, musical performances, and the occasional unexpected pandemic bug-out) over roughly 20 episodes, a season of SNL can blur into a hazy wash of sound, fury, and questionably necessary recurring bits.”
