This hilarious “Carol Burnett Show” sketch pokes fun at all the ridiculous premises you find in soap operas. In a town where only funerals happen, how do two ladies get to all of them?

One Youtube commenter had trouble controlling their laughter as they watched this video. “It’s the first time I’ve watched this,” he said, “and I was laughing so hard. I am so glad no neighbor complained as I watched it almost midnight.”
