Kathie Lee and Hoda Eat Dog Food, Immediately Regret It on 'Today' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Feb 25th 2011 12:45PM
Let it never be said that Kathie Lee Gifford and Hoda Kotb will shy away from a challenge. On 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM ET on NBC), Gifford and Kotb eat dog food that's made from rolled oats and is fit for human consumption.

The hosts first attempt to convince a staffer to sample the human-grade dog food, but to no avail. So, Gifford takes a forkful and immediately washes it down with red wine. After chewing for a moment, she says, "Not bad." But, the aftertaste proves to be too much. "Now it's bad," she said.

After some convincing, Kotb tries it herself with a wine chaser. "Oh, God!" she sputtered, covering her mouth. "I swallowed it like a pill."

hahaha sounds like when I was in 6th grade and a girl had grabbed the wrong baggy. instead of grabbing her snack bag she got the dogs treats. they were "milk bones" so we were like what the hell and tried it. they are very very very bland. and dry. well atleast the ones we had were bland. literally super dry whole wheat bread I'd guess.... ah well I wouldn't have washed it down with red wine though....maybe some apple pucker or something like that.

Yeah Carl! I thought the same thing. Is anyone else offended by these nut jobs drinking wine in the morning?

Did they eat it raw? Of course they're going to get a crappy after taste. You'd get the same thing if you ate corned beef hash straight from the can. They should have had it served cooked the same way hash is served. They wouldn't have needed the wine to wash it down.

if i'm not mistaken all canned pet food has to be safe for humans,according to the newest laws.

Actually its an aquired taste,no fair drowning it with wine.I think seniors prefer cat food,its more like tuna.

Here, Kathie, here Hoda, sit up, now shake hands, now heel. Do you think they are reverting to their feral past?

Does anyone remember when Hoda Kotb was a bona fide journalist?

Perhaps if the hosts were given samples to compare without letting them know what kind of food it came from, they may have a different reaction. Knowing it it dog food, doesn't make for a positive taste test. Can you truly tell if cat food isn't tuna, sardines, or canned crab meat or dog food isn't corned beef hash or beef stew in a can?

As a teen in class, we were given boutonniere from a corsage the birthday girl wore, and we'd nibble on it throughout the day until it was done! "Milk Bone," believe to be the make. Noticing in the supermarkets that some elderly customers would buy dog or cat food when on sale, and day old breads, and would be the same people, I would see going to the garbage bins getting rotten fruits and veggies, also returning taxed recycled bottles for the money to buy their foods. Social Security is nothing to meet the cost of living as it is today, and most employers aren't hiring people over 60's. These elderly are the very proud people that have worked all their lives, some served in the military, yet, aren't able to afford a decent meal, nor are they afforded food stamps.
