Awkward moments or awesomely hilarious? Or both? You be the judge:
Twitter was buzzing, while gasping for breath, over Anderson Cooper’s live interviews from The Vatican. Read and giggle madly.
I don't know what's worse: Chris Matthews telling the new Pope what he should do on MSNBC or Anderson Cooper interviewing Americans on CNN.—

But, wait! There’s more.
"I'm so glad you're here." — Anderson Cooper to random Americans in St. Peter's Square, for some reason—

Why is Anderson Cooper saying he's so glad every person he interviews is here? Is he the actual host of Pope Fest 2013?—

CNN's Anderson Cooper now talking to that awesome guy you met in that bar in Naples in '87.—

And what’s with his microphone? Even that is awkward.
Why is Anderson Cooper using a feather duster as a microphone—

The giggles continue.
Does Anderson Cooper always do this gasping breathing thing while reporting? He needs to get that checked out.—

I really wish someone would respond to Anderson Cooper's question: Why are you here? with "Just looking for some gelato, man."—
