Last night, Mark Zuckerberg -- the real one -- made a guest appearance on "Saturday Night Live." He showed up to meet host Jesse Eisenberg for the first time; Eisenberg played Zuckerberg as an arrogant, self-serving guy in "The Social Network." As Andy Samberg puts it in the clip, coining the best new word of the week, "Awkberg!"

And it is a pretty awkward little cameo, with a strange rhythm and a few painful pauses --but it's hard to tell if the Zuck is playing awkward to match his character in the movie, or if he's just being his truly awkward self. His best line? "Come on, I invented poking!"
