Karl Stefanovic Absolutely Lost It Over Lisa Wilkinson’s Beard “In Her Genes”

Your boy Karl Stefanovic had a bloody good morning today. On his usual post at the helm of the Today Show he casually filed away another one for the highlight reel, capitalising on a slight slip-of-the-tongue from fellow co-host Lisa Wilkinson with the kind of speed and accuracy that most seasoned comics could only ever dream about.

The men behind the Beard Season charity initiative – a hirsute pursuit in the name of raising awareness and funds for melanoma research – stopped by the show this morning to kickstart their campaign, which launches today.
With Wilko remarking on her family’s follicular feats, she declared that even she too could probably grow a beard to support, and that it was “in my genes.”
Spotting the homonym a mile away, Karlos pounced.
Cue: Tears of laughter.

Lisa has a beard in her genes… LOL! This is Beard Season#Today9

This is Australian TV at its extreme finest, dear pals.

Poor Wilko’s day of flubs didn’t end there, either. She fell victim to the much dreaded curse of autocorrect in wishing social media a happy winter.

Disclaimer: Please check with Fiona if she’s cool with that first.
