Yesterday news broke that comedian Michael Che would be replacing Cecily Strong on the Weekend Update news desk this fall. As welcome as a new black player is on a variety show that so often lacks, well, variety, most couldn't help but wonder, "why do we need another dude?"

For fairness, balance, and the interest of quieting white males, why not replace Colin Jost? Do you even know who Colin Jost is? You may not remember him as that guy who mansplained a Harold to you at a kegger some years ago, I would assume. Without further ado, here is a list of suitable replacements for Jost:

  • Cecily Strong
  • Kate Berlant
  • Casey Jane Ellison
  • Jessica Williams
  • Flo from the Progressive Commercials
  • LaKendra Tookes
  • Lane Moore
  • Leslie Jones
  • Anne Lane
  • Alana Johnston
  • Joan Rivers' corpse
  • Nicki Minaj
  • Lauren Lapkus
  • Stephanie Allyne
  • Your kooky aunt
  • Penny Proud
  • A picture of Jane Curtin
  • Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century
  • Miranda July
  • A drunk Michelle Rodriguez
  • Courtney Stodden
  • Jewish Gwyneth Paltrow
  • That "Hello I'm Shelley Duvall" video
  • One of Gilda Radner's cancerous cells
  • A copy of Rookie Magazine
  • A set of The Simple Life DVDs
  • Anatomical model of a vagina
  • Any lunch lady
