Just a few short days after Jimmy Kimmel’s White House Correspondents’ Dinner speech, the ABC late night host joined Anderson Cooper on CNN in an unsuccessful attempt to bring out those infectious giggles that Cooper is known for.

“I did cut in advance some jokes that I thought were offensive,” Kimmel said. “To me they’re not offensive, but others told me that they might be offensive.”

Rick Santorum is like the college roommate that wouldn’t leave you when your girlfriend came over, but secretly wanted you to do it in front of him,” he began, eyeing Cooper for any glimmer of a reaction.

“That is one of those things that I cannot acknowledge in any way,” Cooper quickly explained. “I’m just now going to have to watch you.”

After a few more shots aimed at President Obama and Chris Christie, Kimmel noted: “You must be a lot of fun at parties, Anderson.”

Later in the broadcast, Cooper pulled a clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live! for his RidicuList segment, in which Kimmel called on CNN to drug test Cooper after one of his famous laughing fits. "I think Anderson Cooper is high! How else do you explain that? The word 'Pussywillow' is not that funny. No word is that funny," Kimmel joked.
