I'm not sure if anyone is interested, the Weekend Update on this weekend's Saturday Night Live had a mock interview with the iceberg that sank the Titanic.

Interesting thought/debate for you all. Does the passage of time mean it's acceptable to turn a disaster where over 1500 people died into a comedy sketch? Would people find a sketch in 109 years time funny if it featured an "interview" with the planes that flew into the twin towers? Just interested in what people's thoughts are?

I think there’s a difference between making fun/making light of objects and making fun of victims/survivors. I find this skit in much better taste than the blow-up sinking titanic slides found at carnivals.

This has been made for fun, but at the cost of disrespectfully simulating very real deaths. The skit only personifies a chunk of ice in my opinion.

I'm undecided on my opinion about an SNL interview with the iceberg. I definitely agree with you Kyle 100% that an inflatable Titanic slide like the picture you shared is very tacky and disrespectful to those who really did die in the disaster.
