On Anderson Cooper 360, the “RidicuList” segment is a time to poke fun at absurd news stories of the week. Last night, the show’s staff made it all about a foul-smelling scented candle on Anderson Cooper’s desk. He claims he had no idea they felt that way until he was reading their list of grievances off of the teleprompter, which says the candle smells like “Mario Batali’s Crocs” and “a garden gnome’s underwear drawer.” Looks like Festivus came early this year for the CNN host.
