“Lovely Gourd, Jeanne”

American Morning co-anchor John Roberts was channeling a naughty Kyra Phillips this morning. When Jeanne Moos ended her segment on a rejected PETA Super Bowl veggie sex ad, she suggestively blew on a phallic-shaped gourd: Laughing, Roberts ribaldly riposted, “Nice gourd, Jeanne. (Roberts seemed to be not so subtly paraphrasing Kyra Phillips “nice melons” comment to Zain Verjee in a grocery segment which was highlighted by Comedy Central comic Jon Stewart.) A smiling Kiran Chetry merely stated, “Butternut squash!”

No double entendres.

    He should have said, “You’re out of your gourd.” J.D. isn’t much of a comedian. Kiran, however, is just downright lovely. I just wish she was still on Fox.

  2. Kerry Says:

    John’s really reaching. Maybe single life isn’t what he thought it would be. Love distance romances can leave a man frustrated. He should dump his Canadian girlfriend and get one he can see more often. Maybe then he wouldn’t ogle ugly vegetables

  3. Marc Says:

    The “nice mellons” comment was made by Kiran Chetry, not Kyra Phillips.

    Actually, Marc, it was Kyra. Cf. link: http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/wed-june-18-2008/moment-of-zen—nice-melons
