ATLANTA, GA – Following a trip to Australia where Anderson Cooper taped a shark special, he was treated to a surprise guest in the studio.
Cooper traveled to the coast of Australia to investigate the tourism destination increasingly popular for boat trips that offer the opportunity to swim with sharks without the aid of cages.
Argued to be both educational and entertaining, the pastime has been under critical review for many years.
What Cooper expected to be a routine trip turned out to be much more when one of the sharks, a seven-year old female named Lorna, became infatuated with the silver-haired bachelor.
“Lorna is usually one of the less friendly sharks out there,” Captain Argul Sherman of the Swim With Sharks Boat Tour told reporters. “We were surprised at how playful she became after Anderson went for his swim. She kept swimming along side the boat, continually turning over to show her underside, a common mating practice in dolphins but rarely seen in sharks.”
Cooper, who planned to leave the smitten shark in Australia, never expected to see Lorna on the set of Anderson Cooper 360, especially not with a bouquet of flowers.
“The whole thing was very flattering,” Cooper said with a blush on CNN’s Morning Show. “During a commercial break I took Lorna aside and told her that she is very sweet and I enjoyed swimming with her.”
“I thanked her for the flowers but said that I didn’t see a future for us. I’m not looking for a relationship at the moment, and to be honest, she just isn’t my type.”
When asked what his type is, he tactfully dodged the question while slowly turning over a portrait of a very lovely wildebeest.

  1. Well, if you are looking for your own vacation home, there's a really nice place in Rehoboth Beach. I stayed there one summer and it's just perfect. It's a very roomy three bedroom home with a deck and all the trimmings.
    It's close to route 1 and right down the street from the outlet stores, where you could do all your tax free shopping. But, it's far enough away where you don't have to deal with resort traffic. And there's plenty of parking to invite your friends from the city for a weekend down at the shore.
    Rehoboth Beach is only two miles away, so you could work on your tan every morning. There's an amusement park and arcades right on the boardwalk to keep the kids occupied so you can have some time to yourself.
    The city is clean and crime-free, with lots of great restaurants go have lunch and dinner. All the kids attractions close down after ten o'clock, but the bars stay open until one in the morning. There is nothing quite like going out with all your friends, and finishing your night sitting on the sand and staring out into the ocean.
    Best part about this place is that it has a mother in law suite with a separate entrance. The suite has its own kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. So you could pay your mortgage by renting it out, while still having a place to call your own.
    I really wish I could buy this place myself. The owners are retiring and want to travel. And you won't find anyone else willing to part with a place like this at that price. But I got laid off recently, which put an end to my plans of acquiring this place.
    So, take a look: http://www.homeinrehoboth.net They have lots of photos there.
