Seriously, People Watch This Crap?

This article calls this the funniest soap opera clip EVER  - which is a bold statement . . . they've been churning out intentionally ridiculous subplots by the thousands for decades.  Still, there's an amusing scene from "General Hospital" last week that's a contender.
