(Newser) – Chris Christie stopped by Saturday Night Live last night, acknowledging on "Weekend Update" that, yes, he has worn his personalized fleece pretty much constantly since Hurricane Sandy hit. "It's basically fused to my skin at this point," he said. "I'm gonna die in this fleece." He went on to slam some of the mayors in his state: "I do not thank any of the stupid mayors who ignored my evacuation orders. You're idiots," he said. "When you ignore me, it makes you look like a real Seth Meyers."

Other notable skits covered the David Petraeus scandal—the cold open involved Paula Broadwell reading erotic passages from her biography of Petraeus to a befuddled audience. Sample line: "'Oh Paula, you are dirty. You may even be too dirty.' 'Really? You think I'm too dirty?' 'No,' he reassured me. 'You're just the right amount of dirty.'" And host Jeremy Renner took part in an Avengers spoof, playing his character Hawkeye as kind of useless once he runs out of arrows. Adam Levine, frontman of musical guest Maroon 5, took part in another skit with Renner, involving three men going about their regular lives while involved in a standoff.
