Christie thinks "roughly" 40% of Letterman's fat jokes are funny

Via CBS, here are a few highlights from Chris Christie's appearance on Letterman's show last night.

LETTERMAN: I've made jokes about you -- not just ongoing and here or there -- intermittent but..... is it an issue or is it not an issue? You tell me how you see things.

CHRISTIE: I only care if you're funny. From my perspective, if the joke is funny, I laugh -- even if it's about me. If it's not funny, I don't laugh. But I've never felt that it's anything that bugged me all that much, no.

LETTERMAN: Now what percentage of the jokes have you found funny?

CHRISTIE: About 40% -- roughly.

LETTERMAN: That'll get you in the Hall of Fame.

Speaking of which, via Mediaite, here are a few Letterman clips of Chris Christie last summer, set to "fat guy music" (in other words, lots of tuba).
