“50 Shades of Grey” is a bona fide phenomenon. Not only is the erotic novel a bestseller, it is being adapted into a film that has some of Hollywood’s hottest leading men falling all over themselves to get cast as Christian Grey, the kinky male lead.
Now, “Saturday Night Live” is taking aim at the S&M book’s popularity in a hilarious spoof. What do you get the woman who has it all on Mother’s Day? Well, you might want to start with a little alone time.
Sidebar: Consider yourself lucky if you are reading this outside of a major city with a popular mass-transit system. We will never look at the middle-aged lady sitting across from us on the NYC subway reading “50 Shades of Grey” the same way again. (And we’re not going to lie, we were already a little uncomfortable to begin with.)
