Well they did both look like homeless guys.

Savannah Guthrie provided the biggest non-intentional laughs though, as she accidentally called the film "How to Train Your Dragon" "How to DRAIN Your Dragon" which gave Al Roker a case of the giggles and he had trouble speaking. Later she started hallucinating, saying that on screen was a giant football balloon in honor of the NFL, when there was no such thing on screen. She's the only one that saw it. Oh, and at the very end Matt got cut off by the dog show, so the broadcast ended with him saying "Children are on their parent's shoulders straining----"  Some sort of pooping reference?

Oh I get it. White beards make you look homeless.

Because the holidays are about being slim, rich, white, clean shaven and God fearing!

I think No Shave November is stupid as hell, but so are the comments those beards were getting.

FTFA:  Lauer, with his knit cap and gloves, goes in for a hug

The word is toque. Fun to wear, fun to say.

If us folks on the top half of North America have no other influence on you linguistically, we'd like to get that into your lexicon.  You'll never need to adjective-noun it again.  It has it's very own word.

Knit cap is also very specific.  What Lauer is wearing isn't a cap.  A knit cap looks like this:

Whereas toque covers that, plus any other unbrimmed, ear-covering wintertime warm hat not made from fur.  Perhaps the only exception would be certain types of ushanka.

Good post. Us Canadians take our hats seriously for good reason.

Lauer otoh looks like a penis no matter what he does

Walker: saying that on screen was a giant football balloon in honor of the NFL,


Well, it was there, but for legal reasons it appeared 10 minutes later in the parade...

Your only hope is to get someone like Kanye West or Miley Cyrus to start wearing them and saying it, similar to whomever is responsible for kicking off the Ugg fad in America. You just have to decide if the eventual backlash will be worth it.

Yeah, but how do you pronounce it???

It's French in origin, and still used to refer to a chef's hat there - so "toke"
But Bob & Doug Mackensize call it a "tuke" (rhymes with nuke)

Which is it?

In Nahuatl it would be pronounced "T'Oh Kay *eyeroll*." The eyeroll would be part of the pronunciation.

Ah the Daily Fail has been reduced to quoting Twitter for its headlines.

Also: Matt Lauer with a beard looks like Billy Joel.

IT'S CALLED MOVEMBER!!! And no it's not supposed to be a beard, only a mustache.

I wonder what month you go without shaving your scrotum or pubic hair. February, maybe?

Pronounced tuke, rhymes with nuke, although drawing out the ooooo's is acceptable.
