Penn to paper

Anderson Cooper will freak when he sees what’s been done to his “tiny sharp nips”

Sean Penn isn’t just jumping on the Anderson Cooper thirst train, he’s rigorously shoveling coal into that engine to see how fast it can go.

On Tuesday, Cooper’s pal Andy Cohen combatted quarantine boredom by posting shirtless photos of the CNN host.

“If it were a normal year, I’d be on vacation with my pal…threatening to post shirtless pics of him,” Cohen wrote, adding: “Well, it’s 2020 and I’m sitting on my deck so I figured I’d just post without asking and piss him off! #SilverFox.”

The photos were an instant hit.

“This is community service,” one commenter wrote. “We thank you for being a good friend and sharing this in our time of need.”

“He looks amazing,” another added. “Brains and beauty and a dad.”

But the most impassioned response came from an unlikely source — two-time Oscar winner Sean Penn.

Penn gave us a good laugh with his big swing of a comment:

Good morning to Twunk Zaddy Anderson Cooper 🔥 and his tiny hard sharp nips😍 🔪

We give him an A for effort and creativity, but we would hardly call Cooper a “twunk”.

His graphic design skills, on the other hand, just about made us do a coffee spit take:

The post immediate caught Cohen’s attention, who signed off wholeheartedly:
