Wednesday night, Anderson Cooper could not help a giggling mess over his own puns and jokes over French actor Gerard Depardieu's incontinence on a plane.
The 44-year-old host of CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 lost his usual apathetic and unbiased posture during RidicuList, smirking and cracking up throughout the entire report about Depardieu, 62, who was caught urinating into an empty bottle on a CityJet flight from Paris to Dublin reportedly after a flight attendant asked him to wait.
I need to piss, I need to piss, the 62-year-old actor reportedly called out, but his entreaties went unheeded by cabin crew members, who asked him to wait 15 minutes for the seat-belt sign to go off, reports TIME.
During the buildup before the giggling fit, Cooper said Depardieu flies Incontinental, created his own jet stream, an actual thespian actually thes-peein, is used to being Pampered and Depends on it, showing graphics of child and adult diapers.
Oh it's full of puns, he said as he continued to laugh harder at each joke.
Can you stop laughing, it's distracting, Cooper asked the production crew as he attempted - and barely succeeded- to hold back his laughter.
All I can say, they should thank their lucky stars it wasn't Depar-two - This was the very sentence that totally knocked down Cooper, barely breathing as he giggled through his effort to finish his sentence.
Sorry, that made me giggle every time I read it, Cooper admitted. You always see this sort of thing on YouTube and you don't think it'll actually happen to you.
CityJet confirmed the incident but declined to name the person involved. Its Twitter feeds, also quoted in the RidicuList clip, describes the aftermath of the event:
We are busy mopping the floor of one of our planes this morning, read one tweet. The second goes, We'd also like to remind all passengers that our planes are fully equipped with toilet facilities.
The next day, Anderson Cooper Put Himself On The RidicuList.
