While the world continues to debate the cause of recent mass animal deaths, Saturday Night Live took to the air this weekend to offer up what might be the oddest explanation.

During "Weekend Update" with Seth Meyers, Cameron the Winged Blackbird (Andy Samberg) and Everett the Fish (Taran Killam) came to the newsdesk as lone survivors of the mass fish and blackbird deaths in Arkansas. Needless to say, with both dressed up as their respective animals, it was pretty hilarious.
