(CNN) - New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie poked fun at himself and his state on "Saturday Night Live," joking that in the wake of Superstorm Sandy, he has "smelled like a wet fleece for the past three weeks."
"It's basically fused to my skin at this point," he said of the jacket, which he was often wearing when photographed following the storm. He wore it, for example, when President Barack Obama toured the battered Garden State coastline.

Christie has said he will announce soon whether he will seek re-election in 2013. The first-term governor teased that the people of his state "are known for their patience."
"I get it, screaming at people at gas stations is a New Jersey tradition," he said, referring to how some responded to gas shortages and long lines. "But you don't do it during a crisis. There will be plenty of time for yelling when this is all over."
