MSNBC's election team veered into some adult territory while watching Tuesday night's Republican primaries in Alabama and Mississippi.

Rick Santorum wound up winning both races, but Lawrence O'Donnell, Rachel Maddow and John Heilemann debuted their blue act in between the period when Santorum had been declared the victor in Alabama, but had not yet officially won in Mississippi. This last fact allowed O'Donnell to call the race a "three-way" between Santorum, Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, something that made Maddow giggle quite a bit. Maddow also made hay of Chuck Todd's comment that Santorum's voters were turning up to the polls later in the evening than the other candidates'.

"The fact that you were calling it a three-way is breathtaking enough, but the fact that nighttime is the right time for Santorum on top of that is turning out to be an overwhelming thing," Maddow said.

Heilemann acknowledged the "triple entendres" ricocheting across the room, before adding one of his own, saying, "there's nothing that is more uncomfortable for Rick Santorum for being in a three-way."

"With two very handsome men, it should be noted!" Maddow chimed in. "Well, one very handsome man," O'Donnell said. "Romney's the handsome one."

"I don't know, taste," Maddow said. "I'm no expert."

Watch the video above. Below, see Maddow running across the MSNBC studios to get to her seat in time for the conversation.
