National interest in dietary fiber piqued at an all time high yesterday when Whoopi Goldberg, host of The View, farted on air amid a discussion about dietary fiber with Dr. Oz.
Oz was busy hyping the benefits of konjac fiber – which is unfortunate, since as a physician, he should be recommending dietary sources of fiber which have well established positive effects on health, as opposed to supplemental pills, which remain questionable, costly and essentially a waste of time and money…
Regardless, caught up in the passionate throes of dietary fiber discussions, Whoopi let one loose, disgusting not just her co-hosts, audience members and Oz – but at the same time, finally securing her place as the most insufferable of The View’s caddy cackle of hostesses.
