Ted Cruz, a politician that even Republican representatives are on record as hating, released a spoof ad during Saturday Night Live in Iowa that's done exactly in the style of an SNL commercial sketch, if the writing staff for SNL was made up of 16 youth pastors who pressured their girlfriends into secret abortions. In this ad, Ted Cruz reveals himself to be that guy who sat behind you in high school calculus—he thinks he's a comedian just because he can do some Simpsons voices

The joke is about how one time, Ted Cruz pretended to filibuster Obamacare by reading Green Eggs and Ham at a time when his fake filibuster wouldn't actually stop any vote and so he spoke for 21 hours on the Senate floor for no actual reason. That moment in history, at least, was pretty funny.
