WATCH: The Olympia Restaurant: Cheeseburger, Chips and Pepsi – SNL – Original Air Date January 28, 1978

“Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger!” If you watched the original cast of Saturday Night Live back in the 70’s, you’ll remember the sketches from The Olympia Restaurant, where Greek owner (played by John Belushi) barks out grill orders to cook (played by Dan Aykroyd who’s really cooking burgers on a grill as the scene opens!) in rapid succession, often overruling customer who would rather have a tuna sandwich, or grilled cheese instead. There’s also no Coke served here, and no fries, only chips.  There’s a cadence to the sketch that builds and in the end it’s really more funny than silly, but I remember laughing hysterically at it when I first saw it, and it still makes me laugh today. How about you?
