Dog the Bounty Hunter: Zach Galifanakis's dream girl?

All of us in Colorado know that Duane "Dog" Chapman, aka Dog the Bounty Hunter, serves as a role model for a certain brand of rough-and-tumble American man. But is he the ideal blueprint for American womanhood, too?

That's the implication made by comedian Zach Galifanakis, best known for his stint as the seriously twisted bro in The Hangover, during his guest hosting gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend. During ZG's hilarious opening monologue, he sidled up to a piano and began delivering deadpan lines about his life -- or should we say "life." Among them: Galifanakis announced that his girlfriend looked "a little like Shirley Sterrod" -- at least that's the name he seemed to say -- "and a lot like Dog the Bounty Hunter."

Hear that, ladies? If you rock Dog's trademark pompadour, you, too, could snare a dreamboat like Zach Galifanakis. See the entire monologue below (after the obligatory commercial):
