Zach Galifianakis will not fall for the Snooki bait on Jimmy Kimmel Live, not this time. Not this time.

Friend of The Comic's Comic and friend of all people who enjoy comedy, Zach Galifianakis appeared last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live to help promote both his new movie, It's Kind of A Funny Story, as well as the second season of HBO's Bored to Death.

Galifianakis walked onstage with a sight gag, and showed his disdain for the MTV trainwreck Jersey Shore with his comments about "Snorky" and the gang. In the opening minutes, Kimmel prodded him for answers about why he'd spend his summer on his North Carolina farm. Galifianakis explains:

As the conversation continues, he jokes more about what he does on the farm, spending the next month in Los Angeles on a movie, and working with Ted Danson. In part three, he talks about researching his part in the new movie.

After the break, the show has Galifianakis stick around to sit next to "Snooki" and hopes that magic happens. Does it? Did it? So nice to see our TV shows put talent next to no-talent as if they were equally worthy of your viewing. Roll the clip.
