from nbc news this is "today" with kathie lee gifford and hoda kotb. live from studio 1 a in rockefeller plaza. >> y indeedy. >> don't check your set it is really us. we are still here. it is booze day tuesday, july 8. the best lives in the whole world. nobody is happier than you are except for al roker. you are one happy woman. >> things are good every now and then. >> things are going great for jimmy fallon. he is kicking it over there.
>> he is kicking it and we seemed bummed because he never mentioned us in the show. he was in orlando and now he is back live. guess who was mentioned again. >> there is a lot of people who try to give you advice. you have to be careful because depending on the situation what is good advice for some people might be bad advice for others. it is time for a segment called "good advice or bad advice". you miss 100% of the shots you don't take. good advice if you are playing a sport, bad advice if you are hoda and kathie lee. >> why are they laughing? >> i don't know. tom hanks knows how to have a good time. he is one of the sweetest guys. >> he seems like the guy you want at the party. justin bieber apparently caught him dancing. he posted this video.
>> we don't know where they were. >> let's take a look at the dance moves. ♪ this is how we do it >> i love it. >> you should do it. >> i love that he is dancing to "this is how we do it". >> you know what, they really would be. >> we want to see them at broadway. >> it would be a hit. if you are wondering where it was some people were reporting he was dancing at the wedding of justin's manager. remember the time that matt came up to us in the makeup room
and said would you guys do something for me. matt never asks us to do anything. he said tom hanks is in town and wants me to have dinner tonight. he said bring two fun people. we ended up going to dinner with tom hanks. it was a lot of fun. favorite couple alert. this is the best couple ever. do you know who they are? sofia vergara apparently dating joe manginalo. >> they need to breed immediately. >> stop wasting time and just maybe do like triplets. >> sofia was dating that guy, nick. they broke up a while ago. we did reach out to both sides because you see pictures or hear
gossip and check it out. here is what joe's publicest said, they do not comment on his personal life. and sofia's team said not commenting this time. >> that is what happened. we think they are dating. don't you think? >> the only thing that would have made us happier would be if george clooney had finally married sandra bullock. >> right? >> we can't do everything. we wanted those two people to get together. >> this is what makes us happy. >> not because they are so gorgeous because they are. >> a lot of gorgeous people in the world. >> they are both so fun and so nice. >> both of them, we had them both on the show. >> the time we had her on the show remember what day it was. >> it was the day we went no makeup and we asked all of the guests if they would mind going
no makeup. she said no. i have come full makeup since i came out of the wound. >> that was an egyptian accent. >> i can do one or two. >> anybody do a killer colombiaen one? >> no. according to this survey they say the number one etiquette mistake people made is texting and e-mailing during meals. >> and as bad as that is it is worse if you invited somebody to come as your guest and there your guest is eating the food and drinking the wine and they are on the phone the entire time. you want to hand them the check. like it's been fun. >> here is anoer one that bugs people. people who don't let you off the elevator before they crowd and trample you to get on.
all you are trying to do is get off, make room for them whether a subway or the elevator, anything that is a close space and you have to leave. >> they feel entitled to the middle of it. >> move aside. >> do you get angry? you have a little road rage. >> i bottle it up and i stuff it down like i do. and then i release it later when no one is looking. >> i don't do that. >> i go you're welcome. that is good. >> just remind them. >> that is not mean but i wish people would not do that. >> they don't see us there is a good chance they also don't eat with us. >> here is a great question. >> most of the time they are doing this, too. >> sometimes they are. so here is a question that the etiquette experts will answer for you. when you sit down at the dinner table and you are trying to figure out and you are at a round table or big table wondering which bread plate is yours. are we talking about grown adults?
>> they don't know. >> i didn't know until someone told me the trick about a month ago. >> when you are sitting here and like do you want to eat my bread on this plate or this plate? the best way to remember which side is your bread plate and which is your drink plate is make okay symbols with both fingers b and d. the b is the bread and the d is the drink. so you remember that is my bread plate. we have all been -- yes. that's it. >> do you know which side of the knife you are to put closest to your plate? >> blade in. >> blade in. because otherwise you might cut someone. so b and d. >> i have heard of people coming over. isn't that a great trick? because sometimes you forget. >> do you like it if somebody goes that looks delicious and
they start doing that? >> i don't mind except for if they do it like that. then i mind. >> then they put their filthy like that and eat it. does that bother you much? >> the not closing the mouth when they chew is grossing me out. >> what annoys you the most when you are eating at the restaurant? >> when the waiter asks are you still working on that? and you go yeah, yeah. what happens five minutes later? back again. you still working? they want you out of the table. >> the answer is no i'm not working. i left work to come here so i can eat. i'm eating. when i'm not eating anymore i will be sitting here in front of it. >> it's the turnover. that is how they make the money. >> i don't like when let's say i'm finished because i eat
quickly and it is over. other people are still eating. i don't like when they take my plate because the other person feels compelled to rush and finish. just leave the plates. >> okay. here is the other thing you should not do if you want to live. the tour de france is asking fans to stop taking selfies. >> they are hanging out into the track area and trying to get a picture of themselves while the bikes are going by at really fast speed. >> she did what i do with the mouth open. that would be so bad. >> who thought that was a good idea? >> don't do it. >> they actually had video of some of the people, some of the riders like knocking the cameras down. watch. let's watch. okay. it's -- yeah. move out of the way. okay. wow. they have no barriers up. none.
competitors are calling it a dangerous mix of vanity and stupidity. one said people don't understand how fast we go and how much of the road we use. they think i want to get a shot of me with them in the background. >> another place we don't suggest you do it either is the running of the bulls. unless it is a really nice bull and friendly. >> every year they do this. they are running nine football fields. they are sprinting. four people got taken to the hospital with injuries and people are cheering. >> people have been goured to death. >> i mean, i guess i don't know. >> i don't know. >> i know it is a cultural thing
but it does seem to me likes -- born with a rare medical disease and one of his legs needed to be amputated. right foot and left leg. you think they thought the doctors said they didn't think the young child would survive. caden has a spirit about him taking it one step at a time. take a look at this video shared more than 100,000 times. >> he just got a prosthetic. >> i got it. >> you do? >> i got it. i got it. >> okay. >> i got it. i got it. i got it. i got it. i got it. i got it. i got it. i got it. >> good job. >> i got it. i got it. i got it. >> you got it? >> i got it. >> listen to him say that all
