Following U.S. Olympic swimmer Ryan Locte’s admission that he pees in the pool, the train wreck that is Kathie Lee and Hoda on NBC decided to share their thoughts on the issue – 10 days later.
Lochte had originally said, "There’s something about getting into chlorine water that you just automatically go."
Wannabe microbiologist Kathie Lee chimed in this morning that, "chlorine doesn’t take care of ALL the germs.”
"Don’t you pee in the shower?" asked Hoda.
KLG admits that she does, but only because she’s concerned about the earth, and doing so saves a flush.
Sometimes, late in the morning, when there’s nothing else for background TV and the DVR is empty, I’ll put on the later version of Today with Kathie Lee and Hoda.
I never would have known about them except for the Saturday Night Live sketches.
It’s entertaining background – for all the wrong reasons.
Today it was, how to spread dangerous microorganisms all over the kitchen from raw lamb.
The food safety fun starts about 2:20 in the video below where Chef Michael starts touching the raw lamb and then everything else in the kitchen.
To the chef’s credit, he does say cook to an internal temperature of 140F, but doesn’t bother to use a tip-sensitive digital thermometer to show that the pieces Hoda finds too raw may be safe or not.
Color is a lousy indicator of pretty much anything.
