Anderson Pooper, um, Cooper loses it over Depardieu-story puns
Anderson Cooper couldn't keep it together Wednesday on CNN when discussing the Gerard Depardieu's recent public-urination incident, dissolving into his own personal giggle party when his own pee puns became too much to bear.
During his segment "The Ridiculist," the anchor takes aim at French actor Depardieu, who'd relieved himself on a commercial jet Tuesday, but after several cracks Cooper quite literally has to wipe tears out of his eyes.
Who knew bathroom humor was Mr. Disaster Coverage's Achilles' heel? Cooper made it through some gems -- Depardieu "created his own jet stream," the incident was his "No. 1 role" -- but it was the notion of a "Depar-doo" that really sent him over the edge.
"This has actually never happened to me!" he said in tears. "You always see this sort of thing on YouTube and you don't think it can actually happen to you!"
Oh, it has. Check it out, below.
