Anderson Cooper Loses It: ‘This has actually never happened to me.’

CNN’s Anderson Cooper couldn’t keep it together during his RidicuList segment tonight. It was about French actor Gerard Depardieu who is accused of urinating on the floor of a Paris-Dublin flight. During the pun-filled segment (“yellow journalism flushed from our memories”) Cooper lost it when he read the line about how the cleaning crew “should thank their lucky stars this wasn’t De-part-two.”

“This has actually never happened to me,” Cooper says through giggles.

> Update: The next night, Cooper put himself in the RiducuList.
