BUFFALO, N.Y., April 12 (UPI) -- CNN host Anderson Cooper apologized for giggling during a segment about Dyngus Day festivities in Buffalo, N.Y., and said he may attend next year.

Organizers of the annual post-Easter Polish-American event in Buffalo said they were not offended when Cooper broke into fits of laughter while talking about the event and described it as "really so stupid" during Tuesday's airing of "Anderson Cooper 360," The Buffalo News reported Thursday.

Dyngus Day Buffalo co-founder Eddy Dobosiewicz appeared on the show Wednesday to accept Cooper's apology and invite him to be the very first "Pussy Willow Prince" at next year's festival.

"My giggling fit was stupid," Cooper said during Wednesday's show. "It's stupid that a grown man giggles like a 13-year-old girl meeting Justin Bieber for the first time. And it isn't the first time it's happened."

Cooper said he would like to accept Dobosiewicz's invitation, events permitting.

"I would love to be that first Pussy Willow Prince," Cooper said. "Let's talk again next year."
