Not all love songs are about romantic love, and “Waiting On A Friend” might be the greatest example of that. The second single off 1981’s ‘Tattoo You,’ the lyrics for “Waiting On A Friend” were penned by Mick Jagger about the friendships within the Stones: “Don’t need a whore, don’t need no booze. Don’t need a virgin priest, but I need someone I can cry to. I need someone to protect.” If you’re lucky, you’ve got a friend that fits these lyrics, and you know full well that that friendship is one of the greatest loves of your life.

Comedian Dennis Miller celebrates his birthday today (November 3), and it goes without saying one of the highlights of his career was when he anchored the “Weekend Update” desk on Saturday Night Live from 1985-1991.

“Weekend Update” has seen a number of anchors and anchor teams throughout its 40+ years on the air, but who was the best?

In honor of Miller’s birthday today, we pose that question to you in the poll below.  Vote for the anchor/anchor team you think was best and share some of your favorite “Weekend Update” moments in the comments.  If you don’t, frankly, you’re an ignorant slut.
