Anderson Cooper on Depardieu: Bad puns galore (Video)

Anderson Cooper remains calm in the face of devastating natural disasters, rioting crowds and wartorn countries. But the newscaster is no match for bathroom humor.

On his CNN show, the “Ridiculist” segment regularly allows Cooper to sully his serious journalstic hands with Jersey Shore gossip. On Wednesday night he ventured into territory so absurd it left him in tears.

Cooper added Gerard Depardieu to his Ridicu-list for the French actor’s decision to use an airplane aisle instead of a bathroom.

Mired down by bad puns about pampered Golden Globe-winning stars, Cooper loses his newscasting cool and winds up a giggling, weeping mess. Enjoy:
