Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

Last night, Eric Ripert tried to cook some sole on the Late Show With David Letterman, but nothing comes easy when it comes to Dave.

First, Dave grills the Le Bernadin hottie on the general safety of seafood coming from Japan. When Ripert assures Dave that all his fish is checked for radiation, Dave brings out a Geiger counter and (horror of horrors) finds the fish to be "hot."

Dave then proceeds to wear the fish (perhaps in an homage to bad Father's Day gifts) as a brilliant but slimy necktie before "peeling" the skin off his aquatic friend and chucking it into the audience.
