SNL's Prophet Muhammad sketch is a lot like old 22 Minutes joke

From The CBC website.

Saturday Night Live is taking some heat for a controversial sketch from this weekend's broadcast that plays on the danger of depicting the Prophet Muhammed, but it appears the NBC sketch comedy show may have stolen the punchline from CBC's This Hour Has 22 Minutes.

The SNL sketch, titled "Picture Perfect," featured host Reese Witherspoon and Bobby Moynihan on a team in a Win, Lose, or Draw-style game show. But things get awkward when Moynihan is asked to draw the Prophet Muhammed for the grand prize of $1 million.
