Mike Myers and Dana Carvey reprised their classic Saturday Night Live characters Wayne and Garth on Sunday night's 40th anniversary special.

During the Wayne's World sketch toward the end of the 3-1/2-hour special, they did a top 10 list of best things about SNL -- and managed to mock both Kanye West and creator Lorne Michaels in the process.

Speaking about the show's great musical guests over the years, Carvey as Garth said: "I think Beck was one of the best, even better than Beyonce." Looking to West, who was in the audience, he added: "Kanye, sit down." 

That, of course, was a reference, to West's charging the stage at the Grammys last week when Beck beat Beyonce for album of the year (a near-repeat of his 2009 VMA protest against Taylor Swift beating Beyonce).

The duo also mocked Michaels while paying tribute to him, to big laughs from the star-studded audience. "What can we say about Lorne Michaels that he has not already said ... about himself?" Myers as Wayne joked.
