Quote: "I feel the hatred rising in me."

Day: Thirsty Thursday

Spoken by: Kathie Lee

Context: iHoda is one of the best moments of the week, because it usually involves calorie-blazing aerobic exercises like chair-dancing and eye-rolling.

This week, Hoda shared her new favorite workout jam, "Cobrastyle" by Swedish reggae-fusion band Teddybears. Kathie Lee took to it about as well as you might expect her to take to a Swedish reggae-fusion band.

Hoda encouraged her to sing along to the song's nonsense lyrics (you know the one – "My style is di bom digi bom di deng di deng digigi"), which she did, but not without uttering the very Emperor Palpatine-esque Quote of the Week.
