Anderson Cooper breaks down in giggle fit over toilet humour

CNN host Anderson Cooper couldn't contain himself on Wednesday night's show, breaking down into laughter after delivering a barrage of bathroom humour.

During a segment called "The RidicuList," Cooper reported on a story where French actor Gerard Depardieu urinating in the aisle of a plane as it prepared to take off.

"Depardieu created his own jetstream, or as the French would say, 'oui oui'," says Cooper as he begins his porcelain puns.

Cooper seemed surprised Depardieu was flying the airline CityJet thinking that he should be flying "Incontinental."

The media found out details of the event after passengers shared their stories. "They saw an actual thespian, thes-peein'," says Cooper.

While he managed to keep a straight face through most of the jokes, he lost it when saying, "All I can say is that they (the cleaning crew) should thank their lucky stars it wasn't a Depar-two."

Cooper starts giggling so hard he appears to be crying and rubs his eyes. Cooper's crew behind the cameras can't stop laughing either.

"This has never actually happened to me," he says in a high-pitch mutter. "You see this on YouTube and you don't think it will actually happen to you."

Depardieu, who starred in Cyrano de Bergerac, was arrested after he refused to wait 15 minutes for the flight to get in the air before using the bathroom. The plane had to return to its parking spot and was delayed two hours while the crew cleaned it.
