Our beloved Today Show anchors aren’t known for landing jokes. In fact, they’re mostly known for killing memes dead and burying them in the cold, hard ground. (When TV hosts over 40 make a Harlem Shake video, the trend has officially jumped the shark.)
But today, Al Roker unleashed a crack heard round the world at the expense of (regular Today Show contributor, mind you) Martha Stewart. In a segment where Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis answered viewer kitchen questions, the topic of proper knife care arose. Poor Giada forgot she was actually holding a knife as she began gesticulating enthusiastically along with her speech (in that charming Italian way), which sort of made her look like a maniacal psychopath.
As Bobby Flay and Roker instinctively backed away, Al blurted, “What are you, Martha Stewart?!”
Zing! Damn, Martha. YA GOT BURNT.
Later, when things got heated between Bobby and Giada over whose burger method was superior, Al, without missing a beat, quietly slipped the knife back into Giada’s hand, which she immediately pulled on Bobby.
“Don’t try this at home!” Natalie Morales nervously giggled in the background. Sorry, Nat. You lost control of this segment a long time ago.

BONUS: Earlier on the broadcast this morning, Bobby Flay weighed in on the case of that woman who had her town’s sheriff called on her for stopping into a restaurant to use the restroom without purchasing anything. Bobby stands firmly in defense of the woman, saying that restaurants should allow passersby use the restroom in emergencies without purchasing anything. Yeah, okay. Who wants to waltz into his Bar Americain on Fifth Ave and ask the hostess if you can just duck into the restroom real quick and then leave? You let us know how that turns out. Check out the full story below.
