Yesterday, while reporting on a suspected chlorine attack on a "furry" convention in Chicago, MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski got quite confused about the subject she was covering. After being informed that, yes, the term "furry convention" was not a typo, she broke down into giggles upon seeing videos of evacuated attendees wearing "fursuit" costumes. Following the video cutaway, Brzezinski was apparently filled in on what exactly a "furry" was, and fled the set, much to the delight of her coworkers.
The video kind of speaks for itself:
"We just told Mika what the convention was about [...] where ya going?"
Joe Scarborough had a similar giggle fit.
Hey, things like this happen to everyone. On the plus side, Brzezinski definitely learned something new at work yesterday.
