Human suffering should never be a laughing matter, though in the case of Kim Kardashian's 72-day marriage to Kris Humphries, well -- bless the cast of "Saturday Night Live" for its take on the Kardashians' reality-TV circus.

This weekend's "SNL," hosted by "Horrible Bosses" star Charlie Day, saw a brilliant short called "Kim's Fairytale Divorce," a mock E! event that gathered the whole Kardashian clan to help Kim sign her freedom papers and throw Humphries some loose change in compensation.

We must note: Kristen Wiig is beyond brilliant as matriarch Kris Jenner, pointing out that Kim didn't get married only to net "a reported $17 million," "she also got married for attention."

Rounding out the sketch are spooftastic appearances from "Bruce Jenner," "Kourtney Kardashian," "Lamar Odom" and a faux Khloe Kardashian -- whose real-life counterpart tweeted her approval of the bit.

"Ha! I just saw the SNL skit they did and I could not stop laughing.... LOL," she wrote Monday.

Nasim Pedrad, as the divorcee-to-be, deftly paints a Kim who copes with heartache by crying, posing and indulging with her siblings in group bleaching of certain off-the-beaten-path private parts.

Enjoy the sketch below -- warning, it has some crude, late-night-style bits -- and give us your thoughts on Kim's divorce in comments.
