We’re not sure if CNN host Anderson Cooper just likes this particular painting, or if the lack of text with his tweet is a subtle hint (he does have a birthday coming up in June). In any case, he delivered his millions of Twitter followers on Thursday something that might best be routed to the Junk folder.

This painting might be considered not safe for work, unless your boss is a museum curator or nude aficionado. Those viewing on certain Twitter platforms weren’t given any warning, though, as the area of, um, peek interest managed to poke through Twitter’s window, even in its cropped form.

(Actually, since Cooper has since deleted the tweet, we might as well censor the screenshot since that’s all that’s left.)

A likely story. How soon until FactCheck.org decides to look at this up close?

Cooper’s explanation doesn’t seem to have put the matter to bed.
