CNN host Anderson Cooper really got himself tickled with a long succession of urine jokes about French actor Gerard Depardieu reportedly relieving himself on the floor of an airplane headed to Dublin from Paris Tuesday.
Depardieu’s alleged in-flight tinkle earned him a spot on Cooper’s “RidicuList,” replete with pee puns that were so funny to Cooper that he spent about 45 seconds on air giggling and cackling with his producers behind the cameras.
In a teaser earlier in the show for the “RidicuList” segment, he warned viewers that he had cracked up during the read-through and that the segment should not be missed, and during the segment itself, Cooper couldn’t hold it together.
In between laughs, Cooper apologized, saying “Sorry, this has actually never happened to me.”
“You always see this sort of thing on YouTube, and you never think it could happen to you,” he cackled before finally regaining his composure.
