Those who are creeped out by Seasonale — the birth control pill that enables women to menstruate just four times a year — will enjoy this parody from last night's SNL. It's a commercial for Annuale, the pill for women who only want to bleed once a year and don't mind side effects that include axe-wielding, binge-eating, and bestiality, among other things. (At the end of the fauxmercial, a voiceover warns potential consumers: "Do not take Annuale if you plan to ever become pregnant, as it may turn your baby into a firemonster... Notify authorities in your town when your period is imminent as they may want to incarcerate you preemptively like a wolfman.")
