RidicuList: The not so haunted haunted house  

A Tampa reporter got a sneak peek at the "Howl-O-Scream" haunted house. If you are expecting to see terror in the eyes of a frightened journalist… think again. This is a haunted house fit for the RidicuList.

RidicuList: Dog Gone!

How awkward can a dog's homecoming be? A Pennsylvania family was excited to learn their runaway Jack Russell terrier named Gigit was found clear across the country in Oregon. But Gigit's homecoming did not exactly go according to plan. That's just one of the dog stories that made it on tonight's RidicuList.

RidicuList: An unexpected guest drops by a local news desk 

A bat loose in a Knoxville, Tennessee newsroom forced it's way into a live broadcast. While you need to see how this news team reacted to the unexpected flying guest... apparently bats and other pests interrupt live news shows more often than you might realize.

RidicuList: Talking in talking points

It may seem like an easy question. Florida Governor Rick Scott was asked whether police officers appearing at his campaign event were on duty at the time, which would be illegal. He responded by saying a lot without ever answering the question, leaving Anderson to ask 'what the hell were we talking about?' Maybe you can figure it out on the RidicuList.

RidicuList: Busted while buying legal marijuana

How much would you pay to be the first person to buy legal recreational marijuana in the second state to allow it? That honor cost Mike from Spokane nineteen hours of waiting, some of his hard earned cash and his job. But it turns out this RidicuList has an unexpected happy ending.

RidicuList: Snake commode

When you find something long and dark in a toilet bowl there are really no good options. For one Alabama construction worker, what he found turned out to be a snake. Watch Anderson try not to lose it while reading one snake pun after another on the RidicuList.

RidicuList: An ode to "Older Ladies" and "saggy breasts that droop from my chest..."

"I got saggy breasts that droop from my chest..."

If it's song lyrics like these that speak to you, then Thursday evening's edition of "The RidicuList" likely struck a chord.

Introducing viewers to a tune entitled "Older Ladies," by a woman named Donnalou Stevens, host Anderson Cooper dedicated the segment to an anthem for the aged, in part paying homage to the postmenopausal set.

During the piece, Cooper even found a way to work in America's favorite 50-plus foursome, rolling footage of an old "The Golden Girls" episode.

Watch the above clip for the host's ode to "Older Ladies," and to see this, and any past edition of "The Ridiculist" in full, follow this link.

RidicuList: "I'm no expert on vaginas...but I know enough to know that you are not supposed to go in feet first"

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."
