Anderson Cooper Lose It on Live TV (CNN): Cute!

by Accidental Bear

Our Anderson Cooper loses himself to a number two joke and giggles like a school girl. I claimed him as ours, yes I did.

Before signing off each night, Anderson Cooper concludes AC360 with a segment called the “Ridiculist,” during which he comments on some trivial bit of news or pop culture. It’s a chance for Cooper to show off his less serious side, but he took things to a whole new level tonight when his own joke about French actor/plane urinator Gérard Depardieu caused him to giggle uncontrollably for a minute or so on live TV.

Chapman’s American Hunks examines the packaging of the male physique in popular culture, movies, magazines, and ads from 1860 to 1970.
