Huh? Keep f***ing that chicken! Ernie Anastos's live "slip"

Ernie Anastos of Fox News affiliate Channel 5 in NYC tells the weather man to keep "f***ing that chicken..." He drops the F-bomb seemingly out of nowhere. The best part of the video clip has to be the look on his co-anchor's face--a mix of horror, her own innocence, and the realization Ernie is in hot water.

As a meandering side-note...Anastos alludes to Frank Purdue's commercials from my days in New York, where Frank would tell us "it takes a tough man to make a tender chicken." Purdue sold a lot of chicken in the NYC region (and his company still does I think). I remember that he somewhat resembled our mayor, Ed Koch, and that Purdue chicken were quite yellow (like many chickens in Mexico) because marigold leaves were part of their diet...
