Zach Galifianakis and Stephen Colbert Fight About Barbecue Sauce

During their chat together on last night’s Late Show, North Carolina native Zach Galifianakis and South Carolina native Stephen Colbert took things to a fraught place when the conversation turned to the subject of their home states. It all started when Galifianakis told Colbert, “I’m more proud of being from North Carolina than you should be from being from South Carolina,” after which Colbert unleashed some fighting words of his own. “I love everything about North Carolina other than that damn vinegar stuff that y’all put on the barbecue,” he said. “You’ve got perfectly fine dry-rub smoked barbecue, and then you come in there and just piss all over it with vinegar. What are you doing?!” After briefly discussing their states’ respective vinegar- and mustard-based barbecue sauces, Galifianakis calls for peace. “We can be different, Stephen,” he says. “We don’t have to build a wall between us.”
