"Saturday Night Live" alum Dana Carvey returned last night to appear on Weekend Update with Colin Jost as an old fan favorite character, Church Lady.

Church Lady weighed in on the ugliness of the presidential election, Hollywood homosexuals and, of course, Satan, but not before getting in some digs at the Weekend Update anchor.


"Instead of resting up for church, you’re staying up late making jokes about Anthony’s weiner," she admonished Jost. "Not quite the path of Jesus, is it?"

Jost countered, "I think Jesus appreciates a good joke, doesn’t he?"

"Jesus loves a good joke," Church Lady replied, with a glint in her eye. "So that would leave you out of the equation, wouldn’t it?"
