Oh, this was so awesome, the other day! What could be better than Anderson Cooper plus furries? Anderson Cooper crackin’ on furries, and suggesting they do more at their glamorous Pittsburgh conference than talk. So adorable! [YouTube]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • bitchincamaro

    That’s as close as AC and CB will ever get to having the sex.

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Too hawt. I’m going to take off my purple dinosaur costume and go take a cold shower now.

  • 51dimes

    Only once a year? I thought that Pittsburgh was one eternal furry fest. My bad.

  • Vulpes82

    He should know; he IS the Silver Fox!

  • ShamWow

    Last weekend at SF Pride I was told that furries are dudes that have a lot of body hair and plushies are people who have hott-sexy-sex while wearing animal costumes. Then again the person who told me this was drunkenly whipping a male little bo beep so I doubt their reliability

  • nappyduggs

    “You’ll have to Google it, everyone.”


    There are sweatier ways to get independent initiative points, AndyCandypants.

  • WadISay

    Sounds like Anderson’s proposal to dress up like a chimp and pick lice off of Campbell went nowhere.

  • AliBabaInBA

    Faux fauna fuck-fest? Smells bad from here.

  • charlesdegoal

    Furries in Pennsylvania do it, Politicians in Nevada and Argentina do it…
    America is becoming a nation of voyeurs, titillated by the idea that people actually fuck. Don’t we all? Not often enough? What else is new?

  • Mahousu

    AC claimed that he knew nothing about sports, but I suspect he’s pretty knowledgeable about watersports, at least …

  • Monsieur Grumpe

    Scarred CB? Maybe you feel that itch you can only get by engulfing yourself head to toe in nothing but a minx costume made with the finest synthetics. Call me.

  • Mr Blifil

    Does this relate somehow to Palin’s higher calling?

  • Country Club Jihadi

    Thanks, Anderson. I did “Google it”. I took the quiz ‘What kind of furrie are you?” and now I am scarred for life.

  • JayRodriguez

    Love this comment. Sounds like a Sarah Palin quote. Maybe this is why she quit:

    “OK. how dare them. CNN and Vanity Fair making those dumbassed remarks about us furs. What a bunch of crap they posted in their article. a bunch of lies. We are not Sexual beasts that they claim us to be. God i hate the media when it comes to their lies and deceptions about us.”

  • BadKitty

    [re=355554]Mr Blifil[/re]: What type of furry do ya suppose the soon-to-be-former-governor Palin is?

  • J05H

    Furries are everyone’s problem.

  • Airborne Toxic Event

    Perhaps Campbell was scarred by more than that Vanity Fair article.

  • Scarab

    Those people are sick. What kind of weirdos go to Pittsburgh every year?

  • artbot2000

    A.) So what were the panel topics? Was there sex? Oh dear me. There’s sex at ALA conventions, so yes, probably.

    B.) You must scroll through the angry letters from furries regarding the Vanity Fur article. They are angry at the media bekuz it does not treat them with dignity. They are furries, hear them roar. Do I sense a Palin tie-in? You betcha.

    C.) Scarred… oh sure. Pony girl.

  • orange

    i’d yiff AC.

  • x111e7thst

    I’d do either or both of them.In a thruway rest-stop if necessary, though not by preference. As long as there were no fursuits involved. I do have standards.

  • Cicada

    [re=355557]JayRodriguez[/re]: Gosh, why would anyone think of furries as perverted sexual beasts?
    Oh yeah:

  • Country Club Jihadi

    [re=355558]BadKitty[/re]: Road Kill.

  • Zorg

    There is an annual convention? In the middle of summer? In Pittsburgh? This makes the Ren Fair, Stars Wars and ComiCon people look positively normal.

  • trickyrick

    makes me want to cuddle up with that silver fox and that foxy minx.
    puuurrrr fect!

  • mookworthjwilson
  • Paul Tardy

    Furries are to the 21st century, what Gays were to the 20th. Frankly, gays these days are mostly old boring people, and conformists, totally unworthy of Oprah coverage. Furry on the other hand is where it’s going on. Give it up Gays, you’ve been knocked off your perch.

  • trickyrick

    [re=355558]BadKitty[/re]: skunk, skank, or tasmanian devil.

  • Nikolai Vsevolodovich Stavrogin

    [re=355576]Paul Tardy[/re]: Give the rest of us some insight: how big is the overlapping area in the Venn diagram of furries and Paultards?

  • Come here a minute

    Did you people learn nothing from Wonkette’s historical Invasion of the Giant Campbell Brown? That is not Ms. Brown, that is Erica Hill, CNN furry correspondent. Campbell must have had the weekend off to party with the Foo Fighters.

  • WickedWitch

    That’s not CB, that’s EH. People, not all brunettes look alike!!!

  • Lionel Hutz Esq.

    I thought Anderson Cooper meant that they go out for nice dinners.

    Oh, and they take cock up the ass.

  • El Pinche

    Speaking of beast fucking…the sexual tension between AC and EH always gets me off and CNN knows this.

  • SayItWithWookies

    [re=355580]Come here a minute[/re]: Thanks for clearing that up. I thought it was Campbell Brown in a squirrel suit.

  • steve

    [re=355563]Scarab[/re]: Dude, some of us have to live here, okay? No need for the liberal coasts of America’s better half to rub in the fact that our claims to fame are annual furries and the occasional cut nut.

  • populucious

    [re=355564]artbot2000[/re]: Dignity? So those who cruise for bridge partners and “other things” while wearing animal mascot costumes got into it cuz it was dignified?


    PS- AC is so wanting to ask EH what her costume would be, and then EH would have turned purple and exploded, and it would have been very funny.

  • Country Club Jihadi

    AC wears Gloria Vanderbilt’s vintage platinum mink and calls himself the “Grey Poop-on”.

  • Holding Out for a Hero

    [re=355591]El Pinche[/re]: Perhaps if AC and EH dressed up as furries and had at it, CNN’s ratings would go up.

  • Humpback

    Gosh, I hate being a mammal without fur.

  • El Pinche

    [re=355602]Holding Out for a Hero[/re]: and if it was pay per view, i’d buy it.

  • Mad Brahms

    The thought of people dressing up as animals to have sex with each other is somehow not the most disturbing part of the whole furry thing, somehow. Sure, it’s among the more fucked-up fetishes out there, but hey, whatever. The scary part is that the vast majority of furries report that they *don’t* want to have fursex, indicating that they have some other motive for dressing their obese, perpetually-adolescent asses in giant animal costumes. If there’s a higher level of social ineptitude, I don’t want to know what it is.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Screw dignity. I’m a furry cuz it’s awesome and fun, and socializing at a con is 10,000 times better than sitting at home, watching a Seymour Butts Pool Party video with the lights down and the shades drawn, weeping with shame as I fap away, like most of Anderson Cooper’s audience does.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    P.S. I think the current “furries have weird sex” meme is a vast improvement over the old “furries never get laid at all”. Thanks, guys!

    By the way, did we miss the Fairy Congress convention? I don’t actually read Wonkette. (Sorry!)

  • Judas Peckerwood

    I took the quiz and I’m and Otter! YAY! Now how/where does one acquire an otter suit? A little help, please!

  • nightshift

    [re=355547]Mahousu[/re]: Watersports? Like aqua ballet???

  • Gopherit

    [re=355617]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: I’ll yiff to that.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    [re=355613]Mad Brahms[/re]: the vast majority of furries report that they *don’t* want to have fursex

    Most furries don’t wear costumes in the first place, so that follows.

    Furries are like Teh Gays. Most of the time, you can’t even tell we’re sitting next to you on the bus, subtly brainwashing you and your children. Mwahaha!

  • 2druk2phluq

    [re=355613]Mad Brahms[/re]: tl;dr
    [re=355617]Naked Bunny with a Whip[/re]: cool story, bro

  • 2druk2phluq


  • lizard scum

    Furries are the endgame of our atavistic country.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    @Judas Peckerwood: Fursuits are expansive. Join Second Life and get yourself an otter avatar. That’s what all the cool people do! That, and smoke.

  • Neilist

    Isn’t this kind of thing illegal?

    If not, why?

    (And didn’t Monty Python do a skit about this, about 30 years ago? English Wankers dressing up as mice?)

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Er, expensive. Though many are expansive as well, by necessity.

  • bago

    [re=355640]lizard scum[/re]: I would think that in this instance avataristic would be more appropriate.

  • PigeonPoop

    I am so in love with Erica Hill. Still

  • CthuNHu

    [re=355558]BadKitty[/re]: An Arctic Fox.

    A rabid Arctic Fox.

    In spandex shorts.

    With a machine gun.


  • finallyhappy

    [re=355571]Zorg[/re]: I resemble that remark! I went to a Star Trek convention once- but I didn’t fit in. People kept asking me who I was(I didn’t know you were supposed to dress as a character so I wore pants and a T-shirt)- I told them “a director”

  • El Pinche

    I’m guessing:

    EH is not furry

    CB is furry

  • President Beeblebrox

    [re=355539]51dimes[/re]: As a former Pittsburgher, I can attest to the fact that in the Pittsburgh area, a furry is more likely to be killed, dressed, and eaten than yiffed.

  • kapish

    I left da burgh because it was too hot & sticky in the summer to wear a shirt, tie, & sport coat
    ta work dantan. Younz in those animal costumes are real jag-offs.

  • lizard scum

    [re=355664]bago[/re]: food 4 thought

  • Lazy Media

    I hate to break it to Miss Cooper, but furries aren’t the only ones doing more than panel discussions. SF, gamer and comic-book geeks get busy a lot at their cons, too; they call ’em con-quests. Dragon Con is horny fat girl heaven.

  • doloras

    [re=355576]Paul Tardy[/re]: No, trannies are to the 21st century what gays were to the 20th. Furries are to the 21st century what nudists were to the 20th.

  • Suds McKenzie

    He should have asked “Bubbles” for a comment.
