‘Today’ Stoops To Sheep-Shagging Humor
FinkelBlog ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 03/16/2009 6:39:03 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

"Today" might have hit a new low in tasteless humor on network morning news shows, with a sheep-shagging double entendre this morning.

Meredith Vieira and Al Roker are over in Ireland this week. Opening this morning's show, the pair explained that as part of their visit, they did a bit of sheep-herding, which led to this suggestive exchange between the pair. . .

I missed that, but I thought Today said Matt wasn’t traveling because of the economy. How did Meredith and Al get to Ireland?

Color me stupid,but I failed to get the “shagging” part. I took it as “Yeah, right..can you actually see us being smart enough to ever be sheepherders? The sheep would outsmart us!”

Sigh...I’m going to have to watch the Today show tomorrow, because my favorite singing group, Celtic Thunder, is supposed to be appearing at the St. Patrick’s Day parade in NYC. Other than that, Mark, I wouldn’t be watching it all. On other days, I just rely on you to suffer through it and keep the rest of us wusses informed as to what these unwatchable people are up to. Your stamina is greatly appreciated :-)

You deserve barrels of Guinness for suffering these pea-brained tweedles every day.

Meredith says: “I’m not sure how much fun the sheep had. We had a great time.” To which Al makes his smirking reply, causing Meredith to hit him with her papers.

Thanks! Can I trade that for a case of good Chardonnay, though? I’m one of those chard-sipping conservative snobs ;-)

I’m fond of Chardonnay, myself, but I can get a lot of good Australian or South African reds for the price of a *good* Chardonnay.

Anyway, a case of wine for a barrel of Guinness ought to be an even trade, so help yourself!

Thanks, TC. In that case you’re invited to share a sip!

I’m also into Australian chard bargains. Last week I picked up a Stonehaven, from southeastern Australian. It had real Chard character, was absolutely delicious, and cost . . . $5.99!

A lot more people than just the Irish came over 'in Steerage'. Germans, Italians, Jews, Poles, Lithuanians, WWII Europeans Refugees (DP's), came the same way.

Yeah, I know. But Al and Meredith were in Ireland. That’s all I’m sayin’...

My apologies.
My Irish ancestors came over 'in Steerage' (so did my wife and her parents in 1956), so I get a little ... 'defensive' ... sometimes at the wrong time.

"I'm not sure how much fun the sheep had. We had a great time."

Maybe they will call you in a few days when they get lonely.

Use your AP pc verbage. It's a cottage, not a country estate.
