Kelly Ripa's Vibrator Joke (VIDEO)

Add Kelly Ripa to the proud list of daytime talk show hosts who make dirty jokes on-air.

People might have been forgiven for thinking that "The View" had the market cornered on off-color daytime chats. After all, Whoopi Goldberg recently had a pretty startlingly frank discussion about her vibrator, and the show tormented Mika Brzezinski so much about the same topic back in 2009 that certain websites dubbed the entire thing "Vibrator-Gate."

But Ripa proved herself up to the challenge on Wednesday's "Live!" New York Times technology writer David Pogue was on to talk gadgets, and he unveiled a "robo-stirrer" that can actually stir things by itself. He put it in a pot of soup and let it fly.

"Once you shake off the soup, it makes a darn fine back massager!" he said. "Oh my gosh, alright ladies, I think we all know what that's code for," Ripa replied.

The audience didn't seem to know quite what to make of the comment, but Pogue shouted, "oh my God!"

"Sorry, sorry," Ripa said. Co-host Jerry Seinfeld tried to smooth things over by saying, "that's the first time someone in Manhattan has said 'darn fine,'" and Pogue added, "they'll edit that joke right out." But they didn't!
