TV anchor's flub turns into catch phrase overnight

Thursday, September 17, 2009

(09-17) 19:52 PDT New York (AP) --

A veteran New York City news anchor flubs a line and an obscene catch phrase goes viral on the Internet.

Ernie Anastos (ah-NAST'-iss) of Fox affiliate WNYW was bantering with the weatherman Wednesday night when he cheerfully dropped an F-bomb on the air. What he likely intended to say was, "Keep plucking that chicken."

Anastos didn't appear to recognize the error, though co-anchor Dari Alexander's eyes bugged out after he said it.

Videos of the mistake circulated widely online Thursday, as the phrase took on a life of its own.

Fox isn't laughing, though. The vice president and general manager of WNYW, Lew Leone, says he's "disappointed" in Anastos' comment.

1. So what do I do about this chicken?
Pluck it, or the other one?

6. I don't see what the big deal is
How two consenting vertebrates choose to express their love for one another is nobody else's business as far as I'm concerned.

8. Funniest of all...
The weatherman can be heard to say "Ok, I'll do that," as the camera pans to the buggin-out co-anchor woman's face.

11. That video (with bleeps) played on both Rachel
and Jon Stewart.

Stewart also had an earlier video where that teleprompter reader gave his email or website address as
Anastos.cock.
