This is why Anderson Cooper is probably the best high-profile newsman in the business (although, Christiane Amanpour owns the female and overall title). Last night, while filming from the Gaza strip, where he's reporting on the ongoing Middle East conflict, an explosion rang out in what looked to be a fairly nearby area. Anderson, being the cool and collected guy he is, flinched a little, and let it a very manly "Woah" before continuing with his report.

"Well, that was a rather large explosion."

You think, Anderson? Dude: If that'd have been closer, can you imagine your last words being, "Woah"?

Me, in the same situation:

    I was going to correct you and say Brian Williams owns the title for best newsman on television, but then I watched the clip, and, as a journalism major who hates cable news, my respect for Mr. Cooper grew ten sizes. Not only was he calm and collected, his first reaction was to try to figure out where the explosion happened so he could report it. That's both ballsy and thoughtful.

    Just after the explosion he was reaching for something... his bomb helmet? A new pair of undies?

    Have you all seen him on CNN lately? Shit has become a poor man's Fox News lately. In an effort to seem unbiased, they try to tell "both sides" of the story but sometimes there is no both sides. Sometimes shit is shit and rainbows are rainbows. Why are there so many songs about rainbows? But yeah, during the debates and election dude seemed like the a typical log cabin republican.

    If anything shud happen to Anderson.... *shakes fist*

    Anderson Cooper: So professional that he can report whilst filling his tighty-whiteys.

    Woah indeed Mr Cooper. If I were in Anderson's pants, they'd need changing.
    But seeing as how I'm a married woman, I doubt he'd let me into his pants....sadly.

    But if Kathy Griffin can get into Cooper's underwear...

    Still better than watching clips of Arthur "Scud Stud" Kent filling his shorts during the Operation Desert Storm mini-series.

    I think he flinched more than "a little."

    Still ... the man is a professional.

    Anderson's the man. I love that gif of jonah hill! That was my favorite part of Get Him To The Greek and it always makes me crack up.
