Samberg shared the rejected jokes on Seth Meyers’ Late Night, rattling off a list of them with some side commentary on why they were cut and whether it was good that they were cut.

He revealed the answer, and we won’t spoil it here, but it’s definitely the one that sounds the most like something he would laugh at.
