I guess we should have expected this, or, you know, prayed for it, but Al Roker’s terribly TMI sharting-at-the-White-House confession has been auto-tuned into a sweet jam. It’s less mortifying somehow…

Ever since we heard about how Al Roker accidentally sharted while visiting the White House, we’ve been struggling with the proper way to cover the story. After all, Al Roker + sharting + White House = the pinnacle of comedy. Sure, we’re glad Roker is okay and everything, but come on. How did that interviewer keep a straight face?
Of course, sharting happens. It happens so much, that we actually reached back in time, and found some examples of sharting in literature. Please click through to see what we’re talking about. And next time, think long and hard before you decide whether it’s really just a fart.
Al Roker allegedly caused a stir on an American Airlines flight this week when he refused to give up his first-class seat so Alex Van Halen and wife could sit next to each other. What was his excuse? Oh, he claimed it was because he was allergic to dogs and changing seats would put him closer to a passenger traveling with a dog in a crate. Hmmm. Based on this photographic evidence, we’re not so sure that’s true. Then again, poodles are hypoallergenic. It was the Van Halens who saved the day. They quietly moved to business class. How very un-rock n’ roll of them. Why does it seem like famous people always cause the most travel trouble? Read on for a list of other celebrities who’ve had kerfuffles while traveling. [NY Post]
Listen, I don’t want to be posting this often about The Gos. I really don’t. Every time I watch a video of him or see a super sexy photo (aka all photos of him ever), I feel like a diabetic who’s been locked inside a cupcake shop. Look but don’t touch! Or else someone will file a restraining order! Anyway, Ryan is promoting “Crazy Stupid Love” like, well, crazy this week and he can’t help but do something blog-worthy during each appearance, so bear with me. This is my job. I am answering the call of duty. Here he is demonstrating his “Dirty Dancing” move on Al Roker. Nobody puts Ryan in a corner. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
The Today Show‘s coverage of the Olympics in Beijing has been cracking me up. This morning they featured this troupe of Chinese old women who taught themselves hip-hop dance moves and yesterday morning, Al Roker and Matt Lauer showed off their skills on the dance floor, performing rhythmic gymnastics. Poor Al looks like he might have a heart attack at any second. Clip above! Keep reading »
