Kathie Lee and Hoda talk 'getting to Poughkeepsie'

If you're a regular watcher of the Fourth Hour, you're familiar with KLG's favorite euphemism, "getting to Poughkeepsie." It's a polite, old-timey way of talking about reaching — ahem — the height of ecstasy.

On Friday morning, while discussing a story about orgasms in "Cosmo," the ladies said "Poughkeepsie" more times than Al Pacino says the F-word in "Scarface."

KLG discussed the differences between going to Poughkeepsie alone versus with someone else, the ladies revealed who they think about while trying to get to Poughkeepsie (KLG said "Jerry," Hoda said "Gerard Butler), and they reviewed a study that suggests going to Poughkeepsie makes your breath smell bad.

"Poughkeepsie is not just a city," KLG cooed. "It's a state of mind." Oh, boy.

It's unclear whether this is beneficial for tourism in the town of Poughkeepsie, but at least they have a new motto.
