Someone's been watching that 'Cigar Store Indian' episode of Seinfeld too many times!
Matt Lauer, who is always the classiest of gentlemen (Ha!), was the butt of an underwear-themed joke on the Today show this morning, when Meredith Vieira gifted him a pair of Stella McCartney ladies underwear.
In response, Matt essentially calls Meredith a slut, and when she tries to take the underwear back, he calls her a VERY inappropriate phrase (above).
Sexist commentary aside, way to use an ignorant, completely archaic, and utterly racist term Matt Lauer. Jerry Seinfeld making light of the phrase in the 90s doesn't make it cute…
And this is a world-travelled journalist? Awesome.

Earlier this week, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak said that he would NOT be running for another term this September.
Now, he's opened up further about his Presidential woes, and he's made it clear that he won't leave office right now because he's afraid that Egypt would fall into even more chaos if he did
if that's even possible.
Here's what he had to say about yesterday's protests:
"I was very unhappy about yesterday. I do not want to see Egyptians fighting each other."
More from Mubarak:
"I don't care what people say about me. Right now I care about my country, I care about Egypt."
And more from Mubarak on his whether or not he'll ever leave Egypt:
"I would never run away. I will die on this soil."
Whether or not he stays in office for the rest of his term, let's hope that further actions are taken to stop the violence.
