Watch Anderson Cooper Crack Up Over Something Called ‘Dyngus Day’

Anderson Cooper plays many roles: The authority figure calmly delivering the daily news, the daytime talk show host instructing us on how to properly coordinate an Easter meal, and, as we’ve seen before, a complete giggle-saurus who can’t stop himself from breaking kayfabe in the studio. On yesterday’s CNN telecast, Cooper lost control of his laugh reflex yet again, this time while discussing a Polish-American tradition called "Dyngus Day" which involves something called a "pussy-willow branch." As you’ll see when you skip to the 1:25 mark of the clip (hat tip to Vulture), he simply can’t deal with how ridiculous it sounds.

Don’t you feel like all things are possible after witnessing such carefree elan and joy for life? Back to the grind!
