Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

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):

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
