WATCH: Saturday Night Live shared all the jokes that were too offensive to show on TV

The one about marijuana will make you feel bad about laughing...

It has been one hell of a year for Saturday Night Live, thanks in part to the constant feeding of new material by President Donald Trump, but also thanks to a rejuvenated approach to the sketches which ended up providing some of the best laughs of the past few months.

They weren't all winners - remember that truly embarrassing sketch with Saoirse Ronan as an Aer Lingus flight attendant? - but that is the rick you take with producing a new comedy show from scratch each and every week.

In the most recent episode, Tina Fey and Nicki Minaj were the hosts for the night, but they weren't alone, as you can see just from Fey's opening monologue, which also featured Jerry Seinfeld, Benedict Cumberbatch, Chris Rock, Robert De Niro, Fred Armisen, Anne Hathaway and Donald Glover, and then Fey she gets a birthday surprise guest!

However, later on in the show, the Weekend Update got to the good stuff, after their regular slot of making fun of the week's news, they gave viewers a fantastic parting gift.

Or not, it depends on how sensitive you about jokes that were designed to offend.

Now if you'll excuse us, we'll be over here trying not to disrupt the entire office with our stifled giggling...
