“Did You Know What You Were Sitting On?”


Meredith Vieira needs to keep her mind out of the gutter – and the anus. The Today show host hosted Jake Gyllenhaal this morning to hype his new movie, Rendition.

Naturally, a conversation about torture slid into a queer exchange about Brokeback Mountain:

MV: Talk about movies with a heart: Brokeback Mountain. Did you have any idea when you were making that what you were sitting on, so to speak? So to speak – I probably shouldn’t use that term, actually. I apologize.

JG: Wow! Uh –

MV: You make this movie and – wow – I’m sorry…

JG: Very well put, Meredith.

Huh? We don’t get it…Oh, because he gets fucked in the butt in Brokeback…sitting on…oh, Vieira, you clever, nasty bird!
