Where in the world is Matt Lauer and why can't he catch a break???

Some people just have bad luck. In these dark and troubled times, with the economy hitting us all hard...some people seem to be hit harder than others. And you wonder why some people have to suffer so much more than others?

Poor Matt Lauer. He is suffering far more than most of us.

You know that annoying segment that he usually does on The Today Show, titled "Where In The World Is Matt Lauer???"

It's a really annoying segment (as are 98% of their segments) that features Matt in different parts of the world with the viewers guessing where he is. It's informative and exciting...except it's neither of those things.

Poor, poor Matt...

"Jim Bell, the executive producer of Today, said that Lauer had solicited suggestions from viewers for possible locations -- he has traveled to such exotic locales as the Taj Mahal and the Egyptian Pyramids -- over the past several weeks, but many told him that in bad economic times, the extravagant trip sent the wrong message."

So, they canceled it. Must have been a devastating loss for Matt......

Dry your eyes, readers! NBC has come up with a new and terrifying segment to replace it! How will they torture Matt next?

"Lauer will take a road trip across America with his three co-anchors, Meredith Vieira , Al Roker and Ann Curry. The NBC morning show team will explore affordable vacation spots, many of which were recommended by viewers. During the trip, they will take a new look at customary traditional vacations and search for the down-home beauty of the United States."

Can you imagine a more heinous road trip? .... well, I guess if you brought along the ladies of The View. That would be worse.

And, sadly, the hits just keep on coming for Matt Lauer.

Where in the world is Matt Lauer today??? (get it? See how I played on the segment of 'where in the world is matt lauer' to segue into the next part of the story??? Get it? I'm hilarious...)

Matt Lauer has been injured by a deer. Yes, it's okay to giggle.

Matt was riding his bike when a deer darted out in front of him, forcing him to slam on the brakes, which flung him over the top of his handlebars.

Yes, it's okay that you're still giggling.

I imagine the deer wasn't a fan of 'Where In The World Is Matt Lauer' either.

We only hope this horrific streak of bad luck soon ends for Matt.

Dear Lisa:

Not to worry, I survived the accident. Don't make fun. You don't know me. You don't know my sitcheeation!

Love, Matt Lauer

The deer is my hero in this story. Please tell me the deer was uninjured. I hate Matt Lauer. Good job deer. Next time finish the job.

Dear Matt Lauer,
It couldn't happen to a bigger freak! I'm thrilled that a pansy like you showed his true athletic ability! I hope no bike was hurt in the making of this episode.

Just so you know I will no longer be watching the Today show until the economy is stable enough to support "Where in the World is Matt Lauer?"

I just find it really hard to wake up in the morning these days with the knowledge that Matt Lauer is just safely here in the United States. I mean really how exciting is that?
