Colbert Says "Twat" On The Today Show; Makes Meredith Vieira Squirm (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Can I just say a small thank god for Videogum? Without them we would never have known what a Japanese man in blackface dressed as Obama looked like or how a remake of "Cops" for kids would make us feel. Now they've found this video of Stephen Colbert making Meredith Vieira fabulously uncomfortable.

Colbert was on the show to discuss his upcoming film, "Monsters and Aliens." He chatted with Vieira for a while doing his usual schtick (hating on Lauer, asking Meredith if she's been paying attention during the interview) until our host tried to make a smooth transition to an upcoming segment on Twitter by asking Colbert if he'd ever tweeted. He responded "I have twatted."

A shocked Vieira muttered, "Oh my gosh. Well, actually, so have I." Which sounds kind of dirty considering she realized his transgression. The folks behind the scenes crack up and you can hear Vieira saying "oh my god" as they go to break. It's no Jane-Fonda-saying-the-c-word, but it made us chuckle.

This was cut out of the official online version, but it was too late, the internet already saw it.
