    How did the Al Roker story slip past the Lounge

    Or did it slip past me? I checked the archives and nothing came up.

    The story is he was at the White House, pooped his pants and then left his poopy drawers in the bathroom, which were recovered by SS.

    I think AL Roker wishes that one hadn't 'slipped past' him either.

    See I have not heard the full scale story, caught bits and pieces from the local FM morning drive show. But I was driving north away from signal and it was fading out. Roker's name was mentioned and then...."I'm surprised they let him within 500 yards of the White House after pooping his pants and then leaving the poopy drawers in the bathroom".....and then static from signal fade. So this must have happened in the past and he has admitted to the shart.

    Al Roker brought it up soon after the new year when all the crazy diet talk starts. He was commenting on how hard dieting can be.

    Yeah, he was actually relating a story about the aftermath of his gastro bypass surgery, which as I understand is fairly dramatic, extensive surgery. Back in the '02-'03 time frame, I believe.

    Definitely in the realm of "TMI", but my guess is he told the story on air in the interest of being candid about how traumatic such a step can be.

    I saw that clip on some news stattion. All I could think was; not sure I would admit that to millions. Do you think the White House will invite him back or greet him with a pair of depends at the door?

    I was watching the Today show when that came up (may Have been New Years day?). He was talking about the days when he was still big, and was in the white house. I think he said it may have happened when he was on camera. He excused himself, went to the bathroom and disposed of his under britches and cleaned himself up.

    I saw the story a few days ago ..... 1) he was not on camera at the time. He was by himself when he confirmed Rule #3: Never Trust a Fart. 2) He told the story in the context of illustrating some of the complications that come along with gastric bypass surgery. People think "I go have this surgery, I come home and lose a bunch of weight. East-peasy" ..... and that notion is far from the truth.

    OTOH there are probably fewer people that have done that than walked on the moon. That's rarified air right there.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to hfc again.

    This was my recollection as well. One of those things where I'd be fine without knowing, but I kinda admire his courage in telling the story to help others.

    Adults, maybe. But there have been plenty of babies and toddlers in the white house, and they have a tendency to crap in their pants.

    I can't believe there are a bunch of adults enamored by this story. This is more a story for grandchildren.

    From what I recollect, he was being interviewed by Dr. Nancy Snyderman regarding his bariactic surgery. Al said he was walking down the hall "by himself" and felt the need to pass gas. Well, opps....its poops! He turned around and happen to have a spare pair of undies and changed. He mentioned that after his surgery, he has to watch what he eats....in other words avoid Taco Bell, gas station sushi, etc.

    But to add a twist...since this was during GW Bush occupying the White House, Al and GWB, were going to go on a bike ride and Al had white bib shorts on.

    Exactly. To be fascinated with the story is somewhat childish. These are the kinds of things nobody tells you when you decide to get the surgery.

    And if he told the story in context, I don't see what the big deal is. Could happen to anybody......who's about to go for a bike ride with the President. Even the rich and famous have moments of absolute terror and embarassment.

    He has given new meaning to the term "underwear bomber".
