>> what did you do?
>> i just went up to her, i will not stand for that. no.
>> it is terrible. find your own, honey. find your own.
>> there are women who get some kind of a rush. even out of getting the attention from someone else 's spouse. i find when you make, when you make someone else uncomfortable, you should stop. i hate when people do that.
>> what i love the other day, i think it was the "daily news" had a big story about exposing this big prostitution ring out in long island, i think. and a couple of days later, there's the johns, the pictures of them.
>> because usually you see the women.

>> there's nothing going on around here, i'll tell you that.
>> maybe jerry.
>> businessinsider.com surveyed people and asked them questions. number one, do you think colleagues at the same company should be allowed to have sex. the answer was yes, overwhelmingly.
>> i agree with that.
>> you know dating and you're allowed, okay.
>> number two, have you ever had sex with a colleague?
>> more than half of the 2500 people surveyed have had -- have had sex with a co-worker. and, okay. if you have had sex with a co-worker, have you ever done it at the office?
>> i feel sorry for people watching at home.
>> 45% --
>> your cleavage is out.
>> my cronuts are out of control. anyway, we'd love to know what you all think it seems to me very tacky. it seems to me that it's -- it's a waste of a lot of corporate time. somebody's paying you on the job and you shouldn't be -- i guess you can go someplace during your -- lunch break. i don't know, what, jer?
>> for a good time, it's from jerry. it says call me for a good time.
>> that was from me? that's how, that's how cool i am. i get this -- you want me to ca you? jerry, good.
>>> let's move on to weddings. there again every year we do the toilet paper wedding dress . it's fascinating.
>> it's astonishing.
>> come on out.
>> this is the winner.
>> this is all made of toilet paper . right? and all sharpen.
>> dell us how you came up with such a great design.
>> my name is mimosa.
>> tell us how you came up with this?
>> i really didn't have a particular way doing it. it's just, i worked as i --
>> how did you get the part that looks like the bodice?
>> i used papier machier. look at that in the back. that's beautiful. gorgeous.
>> well it's inspired by the swans.
>> she sort of look like that in the pictures.
>> what's your name?
>> i'm danielle.
>> danielle, cheap weddings, annual charmin toilet paper wedding dress . congratulations, mimosa.
>>> speaking of weddings, and who hasn't stopped talking about it -- bobbie thomas.
>> bobbie, why aren't you off on your honeymoon?
>> we are leaving today. i promise i'll be off. i can't resist leaving you alone.
>> are you mad at me?
>> no, why?
>> because i wore white and apparently it was offensive to people?
>> first of all -- it was --
>> she said to people the last couple of weeks. miracle, hoda is on the air.
>> no, it was ecru and it wasn't like bright white and it was a summer dress , so no, and i think those rules, we didn't follow many of the rules for our wedding, either. i love you more than anything. so i have a bunch of really cool things. i've come across this week. this might be my favorite thing this year. it's called the quick and curl and when you go to a salon to get a blow-out from a professional. they leave the brushes in all over your hair sticking out because your hair needs to cool. this allows you to just click off the handle. can you guys see that? if you get an up-close shot. you literally just click the handle off and leave the brush part in and you don't have all of those medusa things sticking out. and the next thing is kind of a weird-looking contraption and marina is going to help me model this. this is called the air curler. don't be afraid. what's great about this. if you turn a little bit to camera. if your hair is damp it works best and obviously you need medium to long hair. and --
>> it isolates it?
>> it will isolate it. it starts to twist in the funnel. it was working really well earlier. when your hair is wet, it will dry your hair -- there it goes. and if the hair is damp, it holds it down. but you can already see how it gives it a nice curl. this is two in one.
>> so clever.
>> sarah, one more, at the wedding we got a lot of facebook fans asking about how i got the bejewelled headband and all that. i worn wore from christie lauren backwards. i put my hair up. i had put my hair up and supported it this way. but something that everybody can use to get the volume is this new thing from bombshell beauty. it looks a little weird. but it's cool because it has this hole in the middle. when you put it through, you put a piece of your hair through it you don't have to do the teasing that will break your hair and a lot of people don't know how to do it like a professional. it looks like a yarmulke a little bit. you pull your hair over and clip it and they have colors to match your hair and you get that great little bridget bardot look. it gives you extra volume without having to put all the extra teasing in your hair.
>> we love you, have an awesome time. give michael our love.
>> thank you, everybody for all the nice comments.
>>> you know what it's time for?
>> friday funnies!
>>> all right. the joke came from dana blankenship on facebook . i want to thank her for that. an elderly couple is rocking on their porch when suddenly the old man reaches over and slaps her husband, the old woman does. what's that for, he asks? that's for 60 years of bad sex she replies. her husband starts rocking on the porch again and begins to think. after a few minutes he suddenly reaches over and slaps her. what's that for, his wife asks. stunned. he says -- that's for knowing the difference.
>> how would you know good sex --
>> you know what, they shouldn't be slapping one another.
