Saturday Night Live’s cold opening spoofed not only Lance Armstrong’s tepid apology, but the bizarre Manti Te’o hoax. In a spoofed Piers Morgan episode, Morgan (Taran Killam) asks Te’o (Bobby Moynahan) whether the hoax has been “devastating to deal with.”

“It is, but it’s even more devastating for my girlfriend, Lanay… A couple months ago she called me up and was like, ‘hey, I have bad news, I’m dead,” explained SNL’s vacant-eyed Manti.
