Saturday Night Live couldn`t resist a few more Rob Ford punchlines.

During last night's "Weekend Update" segment fake news anchor Cecily Strong had fun with the Toronto mayor`s recent admission to City Hall reporters that he had smoked crack.

She noted Ford said that he would've admitted to smoking crack sooner if they'd asked him 'Have you smoked crack?' rather than 'Do you smoke crack?' — "And much sooner if anyone had simply asked, 'Would you like some crack?"'

Strong got in another shot about the recent incident where Ford bowled over city councillor Pam McConnell as he ran to confront a heckler.

She said "During a Toronto city council meeting in which members stripped Rob Ford of most of his powers, the controversial mayor charged the gallery and ran over a female council member — before he was finally brought down by the third dart."

On the previous Saturday Night Live Ford was the focus of the show's opening sketch as well as some Weekend Update jokes.
