      Also, even native Egyptians from that time period have been proven to have less sub saharan African dna than modern Egyptians. They've been found to be more closely related to natives of the Levant and Anatolia. Plus, Cleopatra herself she greek.

      Cleopatra wasn't a real Egyptian. She was a defendant of a Greek General Ptolemy who was gifted Egypt by Alexander the great after conquering egypt. Her family adopted a lot of Egyptian culture to make the transition to a new dynasty easier.

      They slept together. She claimed her son was his. The Roman dislike of her and the idea her son might be recognized by Caesar as an heir helped fuel his assassination. Augustus hated her.marc Antony, one of Caesars friends became her lover and fathered kids

    The Euripides joke was pretty good. If you blinked you'd miss it. Did Kenan mispronounce "Anubis bacchanal"? Lol He said, "Anna-bus bacchanal". No idea who Awkwafina is, or why she's named after a bottled water brand, but she was pretty funny and seemed comfortable with the cast. :).

    Isis is actually an Egyptian goddess that was much higher than the pharaoh. She was Osiris’s wife, who put him back together after being dismantled.

    In my opinion, these types of jokes didn't seem to match Nora's (Awkwafina's) personality. If you watch her in Crazy Rich Asians, the jokes she says sound more like her. I still love this sketch, though.

    Awkwafina is great she could be a full cast member. Would Awkwafina be the first Asian to be full cast on snl? Snl can use Asian representation its not Harvard.
