Friday night on the Late Show with David Letterman Martha Stewart dropped by to cook some Super Bowl snacks, and David Letterman couldn't help but take a couple of shots about her jail time. But Martha got the last laugh, hitting him in the face with the cheese ball mixture she was preparing (a combination of cream cheese, butter, lemon juice, and Worcestershire sauce).

Right at the beginning, Letterman introduced her as the host of the Martha Stewart Show, joking that "Her very popular syndicated column 'Tales From the Slammer' appears in over 200 daily newspapers."

The in the middle of the cooking segment, he drops the line "Do you ever hear from any of the cons?" He apologized over and over and admitted, "You're a strong wonderful woman, and I'm an asshole." But when Martha pretended to hit him in the face with the cheese ball mixture, he demanded that she do it, imploring, "Come on! Right there in the face! Paste the son of a bitch!"

The exchange:

-Do you ever hear from any of the cons?
You know, that was a long time ago...
- I know, I'm sorry.
That was like nine years ago.
- You're a strong wonderful woman, and I'm an asshole.
I don't get.
- I'm sorry.
It's odd that something like that defines a person.
- No it doesn't. Honestly I'm so sorry. I love the whole football motif. I don't know why I said that.
I know why.
- A cheap laugh.
Yes, a cheap laugh. It's all Dave can think about.
- Martha, I'm no good.
Here Dave.
- Come on! Right there in the face! Paste the son of a bitch!
