Michael Dukakis: There’s my friend Leroy Neiman. Let’s go see what Leroy’s doing. [ approaches Leroy, who’s painting a mural ] Hello, Leroy. That’s great. It’s great. What do you call it?

Leroy Neiman: Governor, I call this “What Might Have Been”. It shows the nuclear aircraft carrier Nimitz after its conversion into a floating shelter for the homeless.

—From SNL’s classic 1988 “Dukakis After Dark” sketch.

“Swedish cruise ship to house 1,260 refugees.”
