NBC Correspondent's Fly Inhalation Incident Prompts Animal Cruelty Charges?
Oh relax, we’re just having a little fun!
On The Today Show, Matt Lauer and the gang got a good laugh when NBC correspondent Mark Potter swallowed a fly during a live report about the Golf Coast oil spill. Lauer jovially commented, “That’s what you call having breakfast on the fly.” Hardy Har Har!
Potter was a good sport about the whole thing though, saying, “We’re calling it the Bayou Breakfast”
This whole silly fly-eating experience can’t help but remind us of the ol’ Obama flight swat controversy that occurred last year. Will Potter’s insect-eating breakfast turn into Flygate 2? We don’t really think so — but it’s sort of funny to think about.
Check out the video below for a good laugh. Oh, bloopers…how we love you so!
