This week we learned that Vice President Biden still has a poster of Philadelphia Phillies slugger Mike Schmidt in his bedroom, which he shares with fellow sports buff George W. Bush. The opening skit of this week's "Saturday Night Live" featured host Will Ferrell reprising his role as Bush, who appeared as a very real "imaginary" friend of a chastised Biden in the show's opening.

Things got much more risque as Andy Samberg offered up his 100th digital short with help from John Hamm, Michael Bolton, Natalie Portman, Justin Bieber, Justin Timberlake, the week's musical guest Usher and Ferrell. Samberg and his colleagues pretty much obliterated the line when it came to raunchy on broadcast TV. Adults only, please. You've been warned:

Samberg scored "In the Cage" as Nic Cage opposite the real Liam Neeson during "Weekend Update." Ferrell played an inebriated ESPN reporter who was stationed outside O.J. Simpson's house during the the 1994 Stayfree Maxi Pad Long Drive championship. Not quite the perfect skit and sponsor for Mother's Day, but funny nontheless:

That skit, and others, also featured former cast member Will Forte. Sadly, neither Ricky Bobby nor Alex Trebek made an appearance.

Mick Jagger hosts the season-finale next week.
