By The Reliable Source

An earlier meeting of The Zipper Club: Bill Clinton on Larry King in April 2007 (Jake A. Herrle for CNN Larry King Live via AP)

"We're both in the zipper club."

-- Larry King welcoming Bill Clinton on the final episode of "Larry King Live" Thursday night, prompting overly-hearty laughter from the ex-prez. Minutes later, King broke in to say that "the suits" at CNN wanted him to clarify: By "zipper club," he meant they'd both had open-heart surgery (where "they have to zip you up again.") Ohhhh, okay. "I'm glad you clarified that," said Clinton.
