Will Ferrell's Buddy the Elf could host 'SNL' for Christmas if Facebook page has its way

A group on Facebook and Twitter are petitioning to have "The Elf's" Buddy the Elf, played by Will Ferrell, to host "Saturday Night Live" for Christmas.

The Facebook account is simply called "Dear SNL, Please Let Buddy the Elf Host the 2010 SNL Christmas" and as of this morning it has 125,920 fans. Their Twitter account called Buddy_On_SNL so far has only 554 followers.

Buddy, I mean Will Ferrell, makes the ideal host for a Christmas guest, the character is not only the best Christmas character to come out of Hollywood in decades but it's also a character played by one of the greatest "Saturday Night Live" alum.
Ferrell was a member of the "SNL" cast from 1995 until 2002.

Here's hoping that the campaign to get Ferrell on "SNL" as Buddy the Elf works. Back in spring of this year a grass-roots Facebook campaign managed to get Betty White to host "SNL" however their figures were up in the hundreds of thousands.
