Giggle Fit of the Day: Anderson Cooper Doesn't Know Segment is About Him

Anderson Cooper, silver fox, CNN anchor and king of on-air giggle fits, was surprised by his staff this week, when he realized the "Ridiculist" segment was about himself.

He began the piece thinking that he was about to discuss workplace annoyances, but the camera then revealed his own desk with a lit, basil-scented candle that apparently everyone else on his staff hates.

"Somebody told me I smelled," he said in response. "So that's why I got the candle."

Beleaguered CNN didn't do itself any favors recently when host Carol Costello "welcomed" Bill Nye the Science Guy to a segment about fire and climate change:

If you Google your name, 'Bill Nye,' you're the kooky guy who doesn't know what he's talking about... You want to defend yourself?

His response is gold.

Fox News president, Roger Ailes, publicly commented on how CNN correspondent, Soledad O'Brien is named after the prison in Central California, prompting her to shoot back a response, in tweet form, stating that she's named after the Virgin Mary. At least she's not named after Liz Lemon's favorite chips, Sabor de Soledad.
