Al Roker

I Sharted Myself

At the White House

When you undergo gastric bypass surgery, NEVER TRUST A FART -- and Al Roker learned that lesson the hard way ... at the White House.

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.

The lesson: watch what you eat. The other lesson: carry spare underpants.

Roker again proves that having millions in the bank does not bring 10 cents worth of common sense.

Al Roker has always been way too full of himself and very often thinks of himself as a comedian....NOT and never was! This proves it.

Whatever would have possessed Al Roker to think we needed or wanted to know this? Does he think the public is as wrapped up in him as he is in himself? Way, way, way TMI!
