Rock, making just his second appearance on SNL as host, kicked off his seven-minute jibe talking about how hard it is to run a marathon, which as any Greek will tell you is 26 miles.
“That Boston Marathon was scary… it was probably the most frightening, sadistic terror attack ever,” he said.
“Just think about it.. 26 miles… is a long drive,” he explained. People jogging for 26 miles… you’re knees are hurting, their feet are killing them, if you’re a woman there’s blood coming out your titties.” What, no bleep?
“You’ve been training for a year, you finally get to the finish line, and somebody screams ‘Run!”
“Whoa! That is horrible, man,” he said.
Turning to the New York attack, Rock said they should change the name of New York’s Freedom Tower to the “Never-Goin-In-There Tower…” cause “I’m never goin’ in there,” he said.
“There is no circumstance that will ever get me in that building,” he added. “What do they have; does this building duck? What are they thinking? Like who’s the corporate sponsor, Target?”
But Rock really turned it on when he started talking about the commercialization of Christmas and an encounter with gun-nuts.
