It's a reference to the old ABC (TV) Schoolhouse Rock knowledge bits, shown on the network in between Saturday morning cartoons back in the 80's. i.e. "Conjunction Junction", etc. The one Chappelle referenced is "I'm Just a Bill". The complete lyrics can be found here: http://www.schoolhouserock.tv/Bill.html

"Congratulations, Bill. You're a Law."

When a government bill goes through legislation, and becomes blah, blah, blah...;-) I struggled with this one, too, good to see that I am not the only one.
