WATCH: Chris Christie talks Jersey, Sandy on Saturday Night Live

Posted By KATE STANTON, UPI.com   |   Nov. 19, 2012 at 10:08 AM
New Jersey's garrulous governor, Chris Christie, stopped by Seth Meyer's "Weekend Update" desk to dole out a few thank you's to everyone involved in Hurricane Sandy recovery.

"I'd like to thank the Red Cross and first responders. I'd also like to give a special thanks my lovely wife, Mary Pat, who's here tonight, who put up with a husband who has smelled like a wet fleece for three weeks," Christie said of his now signature "governor" fleece.

"It's basically fused to my skin at this point. ... I'm gonna die in this fleece," Christie added.

The governor took a few digs at classic New Jerseyan patience:

I do not want to thank the people who are getting in screaming matches at gas stations over the long lines. I get it, screaming at people in gas stations is a New Jersey tradition, but don’t do it during a crisis. There’ll be plenty of time for yelling once this is all over.

And finished with a few words from "Atlantic City," by New Jersey "poet" and "saint," Bruce Springsteen. Watch the full video below:
