Happy New Year! Why not start your year off right -- by watching Anderson Cooper desperately trying to keep Kathy Griffin's face away from his groin.

It seems Kathy thought it would be HILARIOUS to make Cooper feel as awkward as possible while they were covering New Year's Eve on Times Square for CNN, so she kept dropping to her knees and trying to go to town on his business on air. The end result -- Cooper huddled up in a ball saying he's really not interested. We don't know if it's good television, but it's certainly good internet.
