As a gay man, I can assure you that an “iPhone 6 plus” is only 5.

But Twitter’s crudeness is no match for the sanitized sophomoric humor of your typical morning talk show, as Live With Kelly and Michael proved yesterday. This segment has it all: awkward sexual innuendo, faux-scandalized looks from Michael Strahan, and an audience that loves the idea of Kelly Ripa getting it on with a 10-inch iPad.
