Leave it to Kathy Griffin to take ‘New Years Eve‘ to a seedy level.
A few minutes into the broadcast of CNN’s New Year’s Eve show from Times Square, Anderson Cooper brought up a Twitter follower’s comments that there could be a drinking game whenever he giggled at Griffin’s jokes.
“I’m going to tickle your sack,” Griffin declared. “You can say sack (on air). That’s not bad.”
Cooper said: “I don’t know what you’re talking about. I have no sack of gifts here. A sack of Christmas presents. I did not bring a sack of Christmas presents.”
Cracked Griffin, “You’re calling your privates your Christmas presents.”
Just after midnight, Cooper cut to a report by correspondent Gary Tuchman from Eastport, Maine, where the town’s custom is to kiss an 8-foot sardine after it has dropped from the top of a building.
When the camera came back to Griffin and Cooper, she stooped to kiss his crotch.
“Did you drop something?” he asked.
“No, I was kissing your sardine,” she answered.
Maybe Anderson’s resolution for 2013 should be to stop inviting Kathy Griffin back for CNN’s New Year’s Eve live coverage?
