David Letterman returned to his old stomping grounds on Late Night on Wednesday and brought the weirdest little present for Seth Meyers. “Anybody here ever had Lyme disease?” is probably not the best way to preface a gift, but it was funny.
Letterman stated that he decided to bring this particular gift to promote epidemiological health and awareness. “The Lyme disease, the ticks are everywhere. I’ve had Lyme disease,” Letterman told Meyers, who responded, “You look like a guy who would have it.” Letterman pulled out of his jacket pocket a Ziploc bag containing a live tick. Letterman also said that the “tenacious little bastard” had been on his back “at least overnight,” and that since it was still alive after being sealed in a Ziploc bag for two days, he should “get a little money from the Ziploc people.”
When Meyers asked Letterman if he was going to have the tick tested, Letterman had another idea. “No, I’m not going to have him tested. He’s yours! You have him tested! You’re the man with the show!”
