Ernie Likes Chickens

Ok, this happened last night, but since it's already burning up the interwebs, i figured i might as well put it up before most of you have seen it already.

Ernie Enastas, who has been a staple of New York City Newscasting for as long as i can remember, really stepped into a big pile of poo last night during the nightly live newscast.

During a seemingly innocuous segment where they are discussing different ways to cook a chicken, Good ol' Ernie attempts to josh around with the other dude, and TRIES to tell him "You keep plucking that chicken!"

Emphasis on "Tries".

My 2 favorite parts of this video?

1) After Ernie makes his colossal blunder, the dude on the right just smiles and says "OK!".

"OK"????

You know the dude was sitting there thinking, "Shit, did Ernie just tell me to go fuck a chicken? No, SURELY i MUST have heard that wrong. What do i do? I know! I'll just say 'OK' and play it off!"

2) The look on the chick to the left is PRICELESS! After Ernie tells the dude to keep fucking the chicken, her eyes pop out of her head like that little shrunken dude in Beetle Juice.

Seriously, i could watch this all day.

Happy Friday, all.

Brilliant.

Just the other day I was writing a spec. and instead of saying the 'SHIFT key' I wrote the 'SHIT key'. Of course, the spell-checker didn't complain.

That is awesome! Why is it we are so drawn to other people's trainwrecks? I LOVE the look on her face!

Bina said...

That guy in the middle seems creepy to me anyway, so he probably DID say "fucking that chicken".

I listened to it over and over, and then looked away and listened, and holy shit that is so freaking funny! And that woman!!! I mean, are they the only three that heard that??????

Thanks for posting!

Awesome. Did you ever see the one where the news anchor asks the meterologist, "What ever happened to that six inches you promised me?" You should have seen the look on HER face when she realized what she said.

Strangely, the ads on the side say "anger management classes" and "court ordered classes".

I love your google ads. 4 of them are chicken related and the 5th one, lessons from the American Monk.
