SNL and 401(k)s - SNAP!

With increasing frequency, 401(k) plans get prominently mentioned in pop culture.  And I've noticed that in the mainstream press economic ups and downs are often (maybe even usually) reported by reference to 401(k) performance.  So, watching the cold open to the 10/8 SNL, my ears perked up at the following exchange during the game show, "So You Think You Won't Snap" -

Bowen Yang's Morgan Freegirl (host): 401(k)s are down 20%.

Devon Walker's Henry: I don't have one.  That doesn't bother me,

Well, Henry was eventually bothered by some Kanye and other stuff.  But the 401(k) comment set the stage.  Good stuff.
