There’s really no warning we could put on this that would be adequate, so here we go: Anderson Cooper used a year-end roundtable to disclose that his mother was a fan of cunnilingus at 85.

For a year-in-review segment, Cooper asked sex advice columnist Dan Savage about his favorite scandal in the news this year. Savage went with the Rob Ford saga, quipping, “I love a good cunnilingus joke on the evening news.”

Cooper took advantage of the moment to tell panelists, “My mom once wrote a romance memoir about men she had dated-and I use that term loosely-and she described one guy she was currently dating — my mom was 85 at the time — as the Nijinsky of cunnilingus. And she made me proofread the book.”

Unfortunately, no one cued the James Earl Jones voiceover: “THIS is CNN.”
