"(Hey,) Jesus"--- the sketch that (I think) wasn't

In the featurette (that was almost as long as the feature) on this Saturday Night Live disc houseguest & I watched, one of the writers speaks briefly about the hot water they got in over religious things (more than over stuff about sex or drugs). They'd had a hard time, for instance, with Lisa Looper, as Mary, getting noogies from Todd/Joseph in a "Nerds Nativity" Xmas pageant sketch.

I think the story was that they weren't allowed to execute an idea they'd had that was basically What if Christ hadn't been executed but had instead gotten 5-to-10? Then, when he got out after doing his time, somebody who'd known him before was going to run into him and say, "Jesus---you look great! God, I thought you were dead."

I laughed and laughed and laughed....
