Sorry, Jeremy Renner, but New Jersey Governor Chris Christie stole the spotlight from you on last night's Saturday Night Live. That's no knock on you. We just can't resist the fleece jokes.
So, yeah. That was the big thing coming out of last night's SNL. Chris Christie, everyone! He showed up on Weekend Update to trade lines with Seth Meyers, and he wasn't terrible. Christie sent out a special thank you to his wife, "for putting up with a husband who has smelled like a wet fleece for the past three weeks."
"You have been wearing that fleece a lot," Meyers said.
To which Christie responded: "Well, yeah, it's basically fused to my skin at this point."
We're a sucker for a good fleece joke. He also had zingers about mayors not heeding his warnings to evacuate ("when you ignore me, it makes you look like a real Seth Meyers"), and storm reporters ("we don't need you to tell us there's a hurricane, we have windows!"), and closed his appearance with -- what else? -- a Springsteen quote.
When one reporter tried argue it wasn't a Springsteen quote on Twitter, Christie set her straight:
@margbrennan I was quoting Atlantic City, not Jersey Girl. Bruce wrote Atlantic City-- it is off the Nebraska album! C'mon!— Governor Christie (@GovChristie) November 18, 2012
Mitt Romney said doing SNL "wasn't Presidential," which works out great for Christie. He isn't officially running for President yet. Everyone
knows thinks would bet their life on it, though.
