In an edition of "The RidicuList" that had the host struggling to keep a straight face, Anderson Cooper tells the tale of an American exchange student who got stuck in a sculpture of ... yep ... a vagina.
Ever the hard news aficionado, the "Anderson Cooper 360" host did take a moment to plant tongue inside of cheek and poke some fun at himself:
"I'm certainly no expert on the topic of vaginas," he giggled. "They really aren't my wheelhouse, so to speak. But I know enough to know that you are not supposed to go in feet first."
Smiling throughout, the host continued:
"Apparently this whole incident was part of a dare gone wrong," he noted. "A local German paper even made a forceps joke, which is always a nice touch, I think, in any language."
