News anchor cracks up while reporting on swimming cat

A news anchor for WDBJ-7 in Roanoke, Va., could not keep a straight face while reporting on a cat who swims to lose weight. But, come on, how could anybody not laugh at this?

After about 10 seconds of footage that features the chubby cat in a life vest doing the cat-paddle, the anchor, Susan Bahorich, got a bad case of the giggles.

Bahorich tries to plow forward with her report, but seems to find the footage too ridiculous. By the end of the 40-second segment she can barely string two words together.

While the giggle fit was unintended, it makes for darn compelling TV. Check out the clip and let us know how long you lasted before you started laughing (we made it to about 0.7 seconds).
