Memo to Anderson Cooper: Your resolution for 2013 may want to be to stop inviting Kathy Griffin back for CNN's New Year's Eve live coverage.

Griffin, who dropped the F bomb in 2009 and attempted to strip down to her underwear last year, outdid herself Tuesday night in her quest to shock the veteran newsman by referring to his genitalia on air and later attempting to simulate oral sex on her openly gay best friend.

Cooper dropped the ball — metaphorically speaking — a few minutes into the broadcast when he brought up a Twitter follower's comments that there could be a drinking game whenever he giggled at Griffin's jokes.

"I'm going to tickle your sack," his comic co-host immediately said. "You can say sack [on air.] That's not bad."

"I don't know what you're talking about. I have no sack of gifts here," Cooper stammered. "A sack of Christmas presents. I did not bring a sack of Christmas presents."

But that remark was like chum in the water for Griffin: "Do you call your private parts your Christmas presents," she asked in mock surprise. "Typical hot guy."

That proved a hors d'oeuvre for the main course two hours later.

Shortly after midnight, Anderson cut to a live report by correspondent Gary Tuchman from Eastport, Maine, where the town's custom is to kiss a sculpture of an eight-foot sardine that drops from the top of a building much like the crystal ball in New York's Times Square.

The camera then cut back to Cooper and Griffin in time to catch the self-proclaimed D-lister trying to kiss Cooper's crotch.

"Did you drop something," he asked.

"No, I was kissing your sardine," she answered.

But the vulgar humor didn't stop there. "I can do this all night long," Griffin said as Cooper grabbed her and pulled her to her upright.

"I'm going on Letterman in two nights, and he wants a moment," she deadpanned.

The awkward tug of war lasted a couple more excruciating seconds before Griffin said, ""You know you want to."

"Believe me, I really don't," answered Cooper, no longer giggling.

At least this year — unlike 2012's stunt in which Griffin attempted to strip to her underwear — she kept her clothes on.
