Comedian Wanda Sykes says Al Roker, the
Today weather anchor, is her gay tester.
Appearing on NBC's The Tonight Show,
Sykes told host Jay Leno that she periodically turns to Roker to test
whether she is still gay.
When Leno suggested that perhaps she
picked up a cold from Roker, Sykes responded: “Al and I, we get
busy sometimes. Don't sleep on Al. Al be putting it down.”
“Every now and then you just got to
test it, make sure, you know. 'Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gay.'”
“So what you're saying … so Al was
your …,” Leno started.
“That's my tester,” Sykes joked.
“So, you were straight up until Al
came along and then ...”
“No, I just go back every now and
just let Al test it out to make sure. I go, 'Yeah, Al, I'm still
gay, and all.'”
Sykes also joked that she had yet to
receive her “Obama gifts.”
“I feel slighted. Ever since the
election I've been looking out my window, waiting for the UPS man to
show up. Nothing. Am I not black enough? Come on. I feel cheated”
