A chlorine gas leak unleashed on a Chicago furry convention over the weekend left 19 hospitalized and one morning news anchor traumatized. The story gave Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski cause to discover what a "furry" is for the first time, and she simply could not handle it.

Cut from Mika and Joe Scarborough in the studio to footage of people in animal suits—or animals in people suits in animal suits, depending on who you ask— huddling for warmth after their hotel was evacuated. Cut back to the studio to see Mika running away, halfway down the hall.

You never forget your first time.
