The TODAY Show’s Al Roker is known for lots of things. He supports some worthy charitable causes and he has made headlines for maintaining his healthy body. Now Al has something new to add to his list of claims to fame. He reportedly pooped his pants at the White House.
According to a report from CBS, (do you suppose NBC is reporting it, too?) Al did in fact poop his pants at the White House, but this is a faux pas committed (quite unintentionally, of course) way back in 2002. He had just recently undergone gastric bypass surgery.
“I probably went off and ate something I wasn’t supposed to. And as I’m walking to the press room, [I'm thinking] well, I gotta pass a little gas here. I’m walking by myself. Who’s gonna know? Only a little something extra came out,” Roker said. “I pooped my pants.”
How embarrassing! How does one handle such a faux pas in a social situation?
Al claims he immediately went to the rest room (good choice, Mr. Roker!) and threw away his underwear. He then went sans any undies for the remainder of his day inside the White House.
Kudos to Al Roker for laughing about and sharing this embarrassing tale. Of course it’s likely not nearly as embarrassing to The TODAY Show cast member as it was back in 2002, but he’s handling it well just the same. And be honest, now. It’s pretty likely that you–or at the very least someone you know well, has found themselves in a similar uncomfortable situation. It just probably didn’t take place inside the White House!
Do you suppose Al’s TODAY Show cohorts Matt Lauer, Savannah Guthrie, Natalie Morales and Willie Geist are having fun ribbing him about his untimely pooping incident?
