Matt Lauer Rides Jim Carrey Like a Horse (VIDEO)

by Nick Zaino, posted Jun 16th 2011 10:25AM
Today Show, Matt Lauer, Jim CarreyHypothetical situation: You're a morning show anchor. As you tease your next guest before a commercial break, said guest crawls on set on his hands and knees and whinnies like a horse. What, pray tell, do you do?

If you're 'Today' (weekdays, 7AM on NBC) veteran and consummate professional Matt Lauer, you get on that horse and ride (straight-faced, while finishing your line). That's actually what happened Thursday morning when Jim Carrey appeared on the show to promote his new film, 'Mr. Popper's Penguins.'

As Lauer was introducing the interview, Carrey came out a little early with horse routine (it kills with the under-5 set). Lauer didn't even bat an eye -- or stop his introduction -- as he mounted Carrey. "Come on, little Matty! Who's a cowboy?" Carrey encouraged as the two made their way across the studio floor.

Lauer seemed a tad surprised at his own actions when they came back from commercial. "Can I just say one thing?" he said. "I can't believe I rode Jim Carrey."

"You did," Jim replied. "And you should change my shoes, because I'm a little worn out."

YEAH, IT'S SURE A GAY & SHAMELESS WORLD !!! Men have been riding men from the beginning of sin, but NOTICE, as society "progresses" they RIDE more and more, but what's most disturbing and Biblically "Prophetically Profound" is that the world-wide "acceptance" of these "rides" is what has not only brought down great societies, but will ultimately bring down the entire numan race !!!

"l
Lighten up" about activity that is symbolic of what is destroying the human race ?..... when the hell will people wake up ???

Jim Carey is an a$$hole. Why a grown man acts like a moron and gets paid for it baffles me.
