In memory of Buck Henry: The “Lord and Lady Douchebag” skit from “Saturday Night Live”

Yes, he helped create the Get Smart TV series and adapted The Graduate for film (and oddly enough, also wrote the screenplay for that weird sci-fi film The Day of the Dolphin), but I will always remember his Saturday Night Live appearances — especially the classic “Lord and Lady Douchebag” skit.

(You have to remember that this was in the 1970s, when saying the word “douchebag” on TV was positively shocking.)
