Better safe than sorry.

With so much news about would-be Ebola patients in New York, perhaps Jim Carrey thought it was best to be absolutely sure he was in safe hands during his Wednesday night appearance on Late Show with David Letterman.

“This goes in your ear or your mouth or anywhere you feel like,” Carrey told Letterman, brandishing a thermometer. “Have you ever kissed a monkey or licked an airport toilet seat?” he inquired.

Letterman asked if Carrey was concerned about contracting the disease as he travels around promoting his latest film, Dumb and Dumber To, to which the comedian responded, “Once you’ve done a couple of press tours, you welcome death.”

Just wait’ll the reviews come in, Jim.

Dumb and Dumber To comes to theaters Nov. 14. Watch the full clip from Letterman’s interview below.
