Anderson Cooper has an adorable giggle fit while discussing Dyngus Day

Last year, Anderson Cooper made headlines when he tried to report on an incident involving Gerard Depardieu relieving himself in front of his fellow passengers in the middle of a plane. When Anderson tried to go through his news copy, he ended up in one of the best giggle fits ever. It helps that Anderson giggles like a little girl. It also helps that you could actually see Anderson fighting his reaction, trying to be professional, and then just giving in to his full-on giggle fit. Anderson later had to explain himself, hilariously saying that he’s always giggled like a “13-year-old girl.” Well, it happened again. Last night on AC 360, Anderson was trying to do a funny bit about Dyngus Day, an annual Polish-American tradition to celebrate the end of Lent. The CNN video is below – skip ahead to the 1:30 mark to see Anderson’s complete giggle fit. He completely loses it with the phrase “a tap from a pussy willow branch…”

If it had been me, I would have lost it with the line “pussy willow welts.” He is just too cute, isn’t he? I hope someone remixes a compilation of Anderson Cooper’s giggle fits. For science! And for Michael K.

    He’s adorable!

    I love that the more he tries to stop giggling, the more he giggles uncontrollably.

  2. Newtsgal says:

    He just melts my heart when I hear that cute giggle!

  3. Esmom says:

    Love him. And loved the first giggle fit, this one less so. I have a feeling that it would get exponentially less cute with each occurrence so I hope it doesn’t happen again. He doesn’t need a thing like his giggling to make him cuter than he already is.

  4. Kaye says:

    Listening to him giggle makes my day.

  5. Renee says:

    Damn I love Anderson Cooper. So straight faced to a giggly school girl it’s a magical thing. He is adorable.

  6. fabgrrl says:

    Aw. He is just too cute for words.

  7. amurph says:

    I just love that he giggles over things I probably would be out of breath laughing over. He’s adorable.

  8. Reece says:

    I love when he looses it!

    Dyngus = book end to Fat Tuesday?

  9. Nanz says:

    Anderson Cooper and his giggle make my week. I love them both independently and equally.

  10. Agnes says:

    i love it that he loses it so easily. too freaking adorable.

  11. grabbyhands says:

    There are few things more adorable than the Silver Fox giggling like a little girl. :)

    I seriously think he is one of the sexiest guys on the planet. He’s the only gay man I have ever fantasized about.

  13. txmom says:

    Best line: “this is torture!”

  14. Dorothy#1 says:

    This was so funny! My husband sent it to me this morning. We are an hour from Buffalo so made it even funnier.

  15. The Bobster says:

    I hear he has a thing for dynguses (or is it dyngi?), but avoids pussy willows.

  16. Dave says:

    Sorry to be a party-pooper, but notice the things that sets AC off? Any kind of scat humour (G. Depardieu incident), or God forbid, female genitalia references (PUSSY willow). Both are probably taboo subjects for him and sets him into fits of acute embarrassment, resulting in the uncontrollable giggle fit. It’s probably part of the “gay syndrome” of extreme sexual immaturity. Perhaps he needs to get real about human bodily functions and about forbidden (for him) female genitalia. Otherwise, he should steer clear of these topics.

    I’m from Buffalo and Dyngus Day is the best!! It’s ridiculously fun and the entire City embraces it – water guns and pussy willows everywhere, and of course Polish beer. So Anderson, love you tons but don’t knock it ’til you try it :) P.S. Love the giggle

    That guy is so gross! I can’t believe you all think he is cute.

    • mimi says:

      He not only looks gross, its just unbelievable that with all the serious journalists out there CNN gives this guy a show. Its like watching an hour long tabloid show and then at the end, this ish. I ache for all the deserving journalists who cant even get onto local TV.

      • Whitey Fisk says:

        C’mon, the man is adorable! I just want to scoop him up, put him in my pocket, and listen to him giggle all day long.

        You must not watch him much if you think he’s not a serious journalist. Bear in mind that his giggle fits are what makes it onto CB – his coverage of natural disasters, civil rights abuses, and genocide isn’t exactly apropos here.

        P.S. Ain’t no party like a Dyngus Day party.

  19. Loralei says:

    @mimi: I totally agree with you. He doesn’t report news, he stars in an “all about him” comedy show. His arrogance is offensive. I can’t believe CNN allows him to stay on the air. Perhaps it’s because he’s a Vanderbilt.
