All right, I think it’s well known that there’s very little I like as much as self-deprecating humor. Also, it may be known that I sometimes watch “Anderson Cooper 360,” particularly when there are hurricanes involved. Well, my two loves — OK, my three loves, because Jon Stewart is involved — combined today on the AC360 show. It goes like this:
Last night, Jon Stewart (from his new futuristic, somehow Tom-Snyderish set) tackled the hurricane coverage, and mocked away, with one particularly good joke about Anderson Cooper nearly being cut in half by a flying aluminum sign. So, Anderson replayed this bit on his show and agreed that he deserved to be mocked. Then he mentioned two current auctions on eBay that have really made my afternoon: this one, where you can buy the Ramada Inn sign that came flying by/toward Cooper during the hurricane (pictures are promised later on, “as soon as power returns and can use scanner”). And this one, which is way funnier, and purports to actually be Anderson Cooper post-Hurricane Dennis (you can also buy just the brochure version of that one).
