  • Gov. Chris Christie: "I'm gonna die in this fleece."

The often controversial, sometimes funny and always outspoken New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie had some fun at his own expense last night on Saturday Night Live.

In particular, Christie poked fun at the fact that he has rarely been seen without his black fleece pullover. Christie has been holding daily (and often several times a day) press conferences in the wake of superstorm Sandy and he has almost always been wearing the same fleece pullover.

"I would like to thank my lovely wife, who is here tonight, for putting up with her husband who has smelled like a wet fleece for the past three and a half weeks," said Christie on SNL's Weekend Update.

"You have been wearing that fleece a lot," said Weekend Update "anchor" Seth Meyers.

"Oh, yeah, it's basically fused to my skin at this point," deadpanned Christie.

"I have seen you wearing suits," responded Meyers.

"Oh, yeah, but I wear them over the fleece," said Christie. "I'm gonna die in this fleece."
