We should all be thankful and grateful that Al Roker has zero filter and will shart up every single gross detail about his life, because if he had a filter he wouldn’t have given us the story of 2013. On Dateline last night, Al Roker said that a month after his gastric bypass surgery, he was working an event at the White House when he felt the urge to let out a little butt burp. Al figured he’d just let out the simple fart and wave the evidence away as he walked the other way. But Al’s fart bubble brought a wet friend along and the next thing he knew he had a poop party in his panties. Dateline, please come up to the stage and accept your Peabody Award (more like Poopbody Award), because you’ve topped yourself with this shit:
Al: “When you’ve had a bypass and your bowels have been reconstructed, you think you’re pretty safe and 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.”
Dr. Nancy: “You pooped in your pants.”
Al: “I pooped my pants. Not horribly, but enough that I knew…”
Dr. Nancy: “Which is a common side effect of the surgery…”
Al: “Exactly. And so, I was panicking, so I got to the restroom in the press room, threw out the underwear and went commando.”
Shart (in your panties) happens. Al Roker gave us a double gift, because not only do we have the image of him sneakily stuffing his sharted-up chonies in a trash can, but since Star Jones also had gastric bypass surgery, we also have the image of her dropping a surprise caca bomb in her silky drawers. Thank you, Al Roker!
