Christie fat jokes discussed with David Letterman according to a report from late yesterday at ABC. The article says Gov. Chris Christie from New Jersey, and talk show host David Letterman discussed Letterman's many Christie fat jokes on the Monday night airing of “Late Show with David Letterman.”
The New Jersey Gov. had jokes of his own on Monday night. During the segment, Christie recited two of the jokes Letterman had made about his weight, but was sure to state how he has a “deep and abiding love” for the host. Before Letterman could reply, Christie took a doughnut from his suit pocket and started eating it.
“I didn’t know this was going to be this long,” said Christie.
Christie seemed particularly fond of this one:
“A billion dollars will be spent on potato chips for Super Bowl Sunday, and that’s just at Gov. Christie’s house.”
Letterman was sure to ask the good-natured Governor if his Christie fat jokes were an “issue or is it not an issue,” and Christie replied saying from his “perspective, if the joke is funny, I laugh, even if it’s about me,” adding, “If it’s not funny, I don’t laugh, but I’ve never felt like it was, you know, anything that really bugged me all that much, no.”
Do you think Letterman went to far with his Christie fat jokes? Or, is it a non-issue since the New Jersey Governor was not offended by the jokes? Should more people take notes from Christie, and not be so critical of “off color” jokes?
