(Newser) – You might want to start writing your thank-you notes to Tyra Banks now. The talk show host is doing what can only be classified as a public service by airing the first televised colonic on her show today, Dlisted reports. Not exactly sure what a colonic is? Well, let Tyra herself educate you, as she did so poetically in a promo for this afternoon’s episode.
