Paula Deen Talks Thumper, Makes Matt Lauer Uncomfortable


Indulge for a moment while we pretend we’re Joel McHale, and this is an episode of The Soup. Paula Deen made a brief appearance on The Today Show this morning to reveal her “picnic picks”, and after sputtering her 50th y’all of the segment, digressed into a strange childhood story about a goat named Thumper that would “wee wee” in his own beard. It’s rare that anything this funny happens on Today that doesn’t involve Willard Scott saying something inappropriate about one of his Smuckers jar ladies, so we thought you should see it for yourselves. Also: Paula’s hair looks really wild.
