WATCH: Wolfgang Puck And Craig Ferguson Beat Their Wienerschnitzels
Wolfgang Puck‘s segment on The Late Show with Craig Ferguson last night seemed like the four-minute long punchline to that joke where you put an Austrian and a Scot on television and have them make a famous Viennese dish with a dirty-sounding name.
Puck assured Ferguson, as they prepared to pound some meat, that the “wiener” in wienerschnitzels “means ‘Vienna’ — and not what you think they are in Scotland. [Wieners there are] different. They’re long things.”
“Ohhhh, they’re very long in Scotland, they are,” Ferguson boasted, taking a few whacks at the meat.
“You wish, you wish,” Puck retorted.
And because wienerschnitzel is the Anthony Weiner of food jokes by nature, the segment goes to a very, very dark place. “You know, you’ve been on the show twenty times,” Ferguson deadpans, hands covered in wienerschnitzel batter, “but this is the first time that you’ve genuinely creeped me out.”
