A New York FOX affiliate station's TV anchor flub has become a huge Internet comedy hit overnight. WNYW's Ernie Anastos was attempting to make some small talk about some chicken story, and meant to say "Keep plucking that chicken". Unfortunately the anchor flubbed the line and instead the "F bomb" came out creating nationwide laughter on viral videos on the Internet.
The FOX station is extremely upset at the mistake. Only last year, anchor Sue Simmons accidentally used an off-color comment for a promo that was accidentally aired that led to an apology as well. And no doubt the station is concerned about some FCC action.
But for now, the outrageous slip-up is creating laughter and nationwide jokes.
