Roker—who got his stomach stapled in March 2002—shared his most embarrassing moment on "Dateline" last night, saying he was covering an event at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave a month after his operation...when he felt the urge to let one rip.
Roker said, "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. I pooped my pants."
Roker said he beelined for the restroom to dump his underwear in the trash — and proceeded to go commando the rest of the day.
(Confidential to Al Roker: Appearing on Dateline is not like testifying before a grand jury. When someone from Dateline asks you about your most embarrassing moment, you are not required to tell them the literal truth.)
