Note to Al Roker: you don’t need to share everything about your life in an interview.

On Sunday’s Deadline, the famous weatherman was discussing the effects of his gastric bypass surgery in March 2002.

"I probably went off and ate something I wasn’t supposed to," he explained of one memorable incident at THE WHITE HOUSE.

"And as I’m walking to the press room, [I’m thinking] well, I gotta pass a little gas here… Only a little something extra came out. I pooped my pants."

Roker then went to the bathroom, threw out his underwear and went commando for the rest of the day.

This is certainly one way for Roker to divert attention from the floundering Today Show ratings.

But to paraphrase one of our favorite Anchorman quotes, Al may wanna sit out the next few plays.
