Last night on Dateline, Al Roker was supposed to be sharing how he and his family intended to stay healthy in 2013, which is ugh-put-me-to-sleep-so-boring, but there was a beautiful little anecdote in there about the time he sharted at the White House.

It was 2002, shortly after his gastric bypass surgery, and Roker was covering an event when it happened.

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.

Then he threw his drawers in the trash and free-balled it the rest of the day.
