This one’s coming straight to you from the investigative journalist file as Dateline dug deep to reveal that Al Roker pooped his pants while at the White House. Now this is news!
Roker was chatting up the effects of his gastric bypass surgery when he went serious information overload by revealing an accidental #2 while in the nation’s capitol.
You see, Al was working an event at Barack’s pad when he felt a need to let his turtle burp. That turtle had a mind of it’s own as it crept out a little bit too far. Roker strolled away in embarrassment. Heck, let’s let Al tell the rest of this touching story of innocence lost:
Roker: “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.”
Dateline: “You pooped in your pants.”
Al: “I pooped my pants. Not horribly, but enough that I knew…”
Dateline: “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.”
In the end what proceeded to happen to Al’s end ended up to be pretty endearing. What I love is that some White House staff member had to have found Roker’s dirty drawers. Now that should require some secret service investigations.
