Anderson Cooper is Not the Pussy Willow Prince

Anderson Cooper What What Happens Live Anderson Cooper has a message for the unforgiving citizens of Buffalo, New York: he’s simply too busy to attend the annual Dyngus Day parade.

Cooper was offered the title of “Pussy Willow Prince,” due to the celebration’s use of the swamp-loving plants of the same embarrassing name, but had to decline due to scheduling conflicts.

“I wanted to go, I would have been happy to go. I never promised I could go. I said I would pencil it in, and if my schedule allowed it I would go. I’m working that day. I’ve got three jobs, I can’t go to a parade,” Cooper told Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen.

When fellow guest/Bridesmaids star Wendi Mclendon asked what the hell Dyngus Day was, Cooper gave the following hilarious description: 

Dyngus day is a celebration the day after Easter in Polish-American communities throughout the United States particularly in Buffalo. The boys hit the girls with pussy willow branches. The girls sprinkle water on the boys. Or maybe it’s vice versa. I don’t remember.

Probably best he declined. I mean, have you seen The Wicker Man? Do you not remember what Lord Summerisle and the rest of those nuts did to that poor police officer?
