Matt Lauer missed the Today show this morning because of a deer. Over the weekend, Lauer flipped over his bike’s handlebars when a deer jumped in front of him. It’s believed Matt’s shoulder popped out. Co-host Meredith Vieira joked that she hired the deer. “Just to graze him.” Cue polite laughter.
In other news, bike is now a euphemism for car, deer is now a euphemism for hooker and flipped over bike’s handlebars is code for dumped in the river. It’s like those rich Hollywood types have their own language!
