After reading an article about the SNL “fax list,” I was inspired to take a hack at writing Weekend Update jokes myself. Like anything else, joke writing is a skill and I know it’ll take time to really master. I see this blog as a progress report and weeks from now, I hope to see a difference in quality.

I named the blog after late Weekend Update anchor and versatile supporting actor Charles Rocket’s sign off. Yes, he wasn’t the best Update anchor in the world, but the phrase sounds cool. Furthermore, I didn’t want to call this “Nate’s blog” or something like that.
