“Today Show” personality Al Roker shared his most embarrassing moment in a recent “Dateline” interview, TMZ reported on Monday, Jan. 7. Roker learned the hard way never to trust a fart after you have undergone gastric bypass surgery.
Al Roker had gastric bypass surgery in 2002 and has to be careful what he eats. He told “Dateline” on Sunday that while covering an event at the White House a month after the surgery, he felt the urge to pass gas.
Roker said, “I probably went off and ate something I wasn’t supposed to [eat]. 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. I pooped my pants.”
Al Roker explained this is a common side effect of gastric bypass surgery. After the incident, Roker made a “beeline for the restroom” to dump his underwear in the trash. Roker then “went commando” the rest of the day at the White House.
Maybe Roker’s mother never told him to always carry a spare pair of clean underwear in the event that you just might shart yourself at the White House.
