I guess we should know by now that placing both markers and photos of our anchors on the set at the same time can create a dangerous combination.
That's exactly what we did for a segment with Martha Stewart on birthday celebration ideas -- and the results were amusing.
Matt scribbled all over Meredith's picture -- which was to be used as part of party hat -- just before the cameras turned on. "Immature!" Meredith said as Matt grinned mischievously. "This is what I deal with every day."
(Check out Matt's artistic handiwork -- including devil horns -- on the right -- we think he should stick to his day job.)
Never one to take the high road (especially when it comes to ribbing Matt), Meredith retaliated in the middle of the live segment! I guess it's only fair -- an eye for an eye! Or should we say a mustache for a mustache?
Martha -- the pro that she is -- admirably kept the segment alive. She offered several great tips on decorating for a birthday party -- and our anchors should have been listening more closely! TODAY is nearing the big 6-0.
Watch the amusing back-and-forth below.
