Al Roker The shart heard 'round the world (VIDEO)

Today (January 7, 2013) was highlighted by rant-conteur Alex Jones taking on CNN's Piers Morgan in a 1776 do-over smackdown, ABC's 'The Bachelor' premiere with a drunk chick in a bride's dress, a one-armed love bandit and a girl who ate it while backflipping, and then this: Al Roker's "I Sharted Myself" confession.

Apparently when you elect gastric bypass surgery, farts become wrought with danger.

Al Roker had his stomach reduced in 2002, lost a ton of weight, but everything has a price.

Roker dished on his embarrassing moment on "Dateline" last night, saying he was covering an event at the White House a month after his operation when he had to pass some gas.

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."

The jovial weatherman dumped his underwear in the trash and went underwear free the rest of his assignment.
