Happy Halloween!

A sincere question: was Al Roker’s lower blue, um, button really necessary?

UPDATE: Thanks to our friend Ben below, we have more on the whole Rokerball situation:

CONOR’S UPDATE:   Hint to everyone at home.  If your costume requires you to wear a shirt that says “Sexman” on it, you can drink beer, cook bacon and watch Peanuts & Simpsons Halloween Specials because you won’t be allowed to hand out candy to children.  Happy Halloween!

    OK, it’s not just me. The eye is instantly drawn to that blue, er, ball. Whomever directs that show should have caught that. Yikes.

    *snort* Blue ball! Bad enough it’s blue, but then he’s only got one!

  • 3 Ben on Oct 31, 2008 at 1:45 pm

    A deeper mystery is the source of that dark area around the blue button. Is that…an urine stain??? Has Al Roker become incontinent too or is he the top half of that suit and Willard Scott is the bottom half. That would explain an urine stain.

    See, I knew all along that Al Roker was a bad man, and now I have photographic proof. He is wearing a hood and everything. Al Roker can now be confirmed as the madman The Unaballer!

    I’m thinking the blue button is perfectly placed… along with the top two perky nipple buttons on his jacket.
    Also, Mr. Humpty is looking rather like a cyclops.

    Yeah, my eyes went directly to the blue button. Does that make me a Rokersexual?

  • 7 Ben on Oct 31, 2008 at 2:21 pm

    There is a great photo of a dog sniffing that blue button…it is midway down in a gallery on the Houston Chronicle front page. http://www.chron.com/
    I wish I could find a better link for it.
    Bad doggie. Ruff.

    (A sincere question: was Al Roker’s lower blue, um, button really necessary?)

    An answer to your question: No, it is not, Sir.

  • 9 Onil on Oct 31, 2008 at 2:31 pm

    I want them to deliver the news dressed exactly like this on election day.

  • 10 Kim on Oct 31, 2008 at 2:43 pm

    yes excellent thought…perhaps then I would actually watch them.

    then again, maybe not.

  • 11 secretidcrisis on Oct 31, 2008 at 2:58 pm

    I actually think a second one was necessary.

    Unless maybe he was dressed as The Gingerbread Tom Green

  • 12 Auntie Maim on Oct 31, 2008 at 3:03 pm

    Hmm…does Al have *two* superfluous nipples?

    Urgh…I wish I hadn’t gone there.

  • 13 Brian O. on Oct 31, 2008 at 3:36 pm

    To paraphrase George Carlin, when my jelly beans become blue balls, I’ll be coming home to you.

  • 14 camcat on Oct 31, 2008 at 3:43 pm

    Only if they include the dog!

  • 15 NanoRiffite on Oct 31, 2008 at 4:07 pm

    “Rokerball” — okay, now that is something scary!

  • 16 Eeliza on Oct 31, 2008 at 6:03 pm

    Forget Al Roker’s ball for just a minute (I know, it’s hard to do) because that is positively the most terrifying Pinnochio I have ever seen in my entire life! I may never sleep again. I will forever be plagued with nightmares of a lederhosen-clad devil grinning and chasing me. Yeesh.

  • 17 Heather on Oct 31, 2008 at 6:57 pm

    GAH! Why is the other end of that dog’s leash being held by Hugo the Dummy from “Devil Doll”?

  • 18 MVP on Oct 31, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    I agree – Meredith’s Pinnochio looks more like the wooden monster in the obscure horror movie “The Fear.” (Not to be confused with the wooden actor in “Fear” – That’s Marky Mark.)

  • 19 Ben on Nov 1, 2008 at 1:05 pm

    I think the original caption for that photo said it was a female. I’m thought it was either Alfalfa or Samantha Ronson.

  • 20 Ben on Nov 1, 2008 at 1:08 pm

    If you look like that guy and dare to call yourself “Sexman”…

  • 21 Karen Han on Nov 1, 2008 at 2:43 pm

    um, they could have picked better costumes people! sheesh! yes i went to the blue button. meh.

  • 22 MonkeyCheezPants on Nov 1, 2008 at 4:17 pm

    Best. Picture. Ever.

  • 23 kt on Nov 2, 2008 at 12:41 pm

    Yes.

  • 24 chrismartindeed on Nov 3, 2008 at 3:16 pm

    Was Al Roker’s lower blue, um, button really necessary?

    Isn’t that strictly something for Mrs. Roker to decide?

  • 25 BEMaven on Nov 3, 2008 at 3:19 pm

    Notice Pinnochio’s arm?

    The lad is suffering from Shingles.

    Or possibly Dutch Elm Disease.

    Re: Sexman

    Maybe the T-shirt was meant to be a cue card.
