*It all started with a quip from Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

In the midst of an all-out swoon fest over LL Cool J on Thursday’s “The View,” Hasselbeck asked of his arm strength, “What can you curl? I weigh a buck 20, could you curl me?”

With that, LL lifted her sideways like a barbell and curled her several times to the delight of the audience and fellow co-hosts, including guest co-host Vanessa Williams.

Unimpressed, co-host Joy Behar said, “She’s only 100 pounds.” And with that, LL turned Behar sideways and curled her several times. The audience howled even more.

As the star of “NCIS: Los Angeles” lowered Joy to the ground, Sherri Shepherd jumped up and started doing a giddy “me next” dance. With that, he cradled the comedian on either side of her booty and lifted her toward his chest several times.

LL then called a time out, pointed to the new workout book  he was plugging (“Platinum 360”) and shouted over the cheering audience, “It works! It works!”
