Killing My Lobster is a San Francisco sketch-comedy troupe of long-standing, and they’ve got a show going on right now. Last week, the group posted this “Twilight Zone” parody on YouTube called “Why Is Everybody Here?”, in which some guy playing hookie from work is shocked to find no one else in San Francisco is working either.

The piece ends with the protagonist screaming, “how many dot-com millionaires and bartenders and stay-at-home moms live in this town? Doesn’t anybody work here!”
