Lady Gaga Hunts Moby Puss With Fellow Female Sea Captains in Unaired ‘SNL’ Sketch (Video)

But who gave all the menfolk herpes?

The salty air has grizzled the voices of the “SNL” women and worn aware their feminine charms in an unaired sea-faring sketch from Saturday’s show, captained by host and musical guest Lady Gaga.

Some were affected by the high seas more than others apparently, as fan-favorite Kate McKinnon sported a full-on beard in the skit, where the womenfolk take over the whaling ways of their men who have succumbed to scurvy — or herpes.

It was probably herpes, the introduction voiceover explains.

The ladies of late night did their best to put wind in the sails of the role-reversal skit, full of puns (worse than ours here), playboy mermen and female-centric pirate jokes like this: “Shiver me tampons!”

In the scene, Moby Dick of course was replaced with Moby Puss: the white whale who borrowed Gaga’s earrings and never gave them back. To make the rivalry worse, the mammal started dating the pop star’s ex-boyfriend, Doug.

It is fairly clear why the sketch did not make the final cut in a strong episode, but it’s still a fun view.
