Anderson Cooper's giggle fit flies across Twitter faster than CNN's journalism



anderson-cooper-giggles-08182011-430x332.jpgRemember when CNN's top anchor was making headlines for covering Haiti and hassling oil company executives about a spill in the Gulf?

Now Anderson Cooper has begun making noise on Twitter, thanks to the giggle fit he had while delivering his Ridiculist pop culture report, filled with puns about an incident in which French actor Gerard Depardieu urinated in an airplane aisle.

Halfway through zingers that noted fellow riders could watch a thespian peeing -- and much worse -- Cooper dissolved into an uncontrollable giggle fit, something he said had never happened to him on camera before.

Between this bit and conservative Christine O'Donnell walking off fellow CNN host Piers Morgan's show, the channel has landed in the news for some interesting reasons lately.

Too bad it's not for the quality of their journalism.
