When “Today” co-host Kathie Lee Gifford dipped into a bowl of lamb meatballs, she and co-host Hoda Kotb made several attempts at off-color “balls” jokes.
“I was starving,” Gifford said, “So I tasted one and I said, ‘Can I have an entire bowl of balls, please?'”
“You could eat these balls all day long,” Hoda agreed.
“I’m so into the balls.”
Kotb then related a story from earlier in her career when a friend of hers was doing a live shot at a Mardi Gras ball. The line he said that had the entire newsroom “busting out” was, “They’re going to hold their balls here.”
“What’s funnier than balls?” Gifford concluded.
