    Oh Anderson, my daughter thinks, I should take you out to Polish dinner and explain what Dingus is, it's actually "Smingus Dyngus" you missed the point there

    I live in Buffalo and Dyngus Day has always seemed silly to me but I embrace the diverse traditions. But I truly enjoy the rediculist because it encourages us not to take ourselves too seriously. So thank you, Anderson, for that contagious giggle. I recall your previous giggle attacks and the segment when you compared people to animals which they resembled. I believe you were the hairless cat. Life just doesn't have to be that serious.

    Anderson, I am from Buffalo, NY with Polish American ties and I LOVED your giggle fit. It was fun to see a reporter let loose and get real. I was not offended in the least and have watched the piece several times and laughed with you. Whether you go to Buffalo next year or not, I will not waiver in my support of you having fun on national TV. Keep it Real Anderson! You are a welcome relief from the norm.

    Anderson, you aren't the only ones who has had the giggles. My mother used to call it a 'tickle box'. She would say, "Who opened your tickle box?" Well, my friend, you opened my 'giggle box'. I want to thank you for starting off my day with the giggles. With all the bad news about economy, the governnent, etc., giggles are hard to find today.
    Thanks again!

    I am Polish, I am from Buffalo. I think his out burst was HILARIOUS! People, if we can't make fun of ourselves, what's the point of being here? The guy wasn't laughing at us. Number 1, notice the giggles came after the words "pussy willow" which in itself TO ALL AMERICANS is a funny phrase, like FART. Its funny. You hear it and laugh. He's a guy for crying out loud. These are funny words to guys. I think instead of of "the city of good neighbors" Buffalo should be deemed "the city of over entitled whiners". Grow up Buffalo. It was not a dig, it was a dude laughing at a funny word. Cripe.

    Well, Anderson, you made us LAUGH and ROLL and GIGGLE over and over and over! You made OUR day brighter by your giggles and NO it was NOT silly but absolutely GREAT! So much news these days brings tears of anguish, but not this report, and from the land of Arkansas where we have Toad Suck Day, well, WE LOVED YOUR SEGMENT and feel there is no need to apologize for laughing. LAUGH MORE! We loved it! Great Job, and hats off to YOU, Anderson!

    Offended? What about Big Chuck, Houlihan and Little John ripping on Polish people for years? Im not offended by Anderson. It is a silly funny tradition! Keep laughing Anderson. You are a good man and I appreciate all that you have done and continue to do.
