Keep F***ing That Chicken: The Remix

I really was planning on avoiding this whole incident but then someone went and  remixed it with Tori Amos!  I was rendered powerless and just had to include this little gem for you.

So, here's what happened as the precursor to said remix: WNYW Fox 5 New York anchor Ernie Anastos uttered the mother of all fleeting expletives on the Fox 5 News At 10 on Wednesday, September 16, 2009....And here we go, the club version of "Fucking That Chicken"  I hope somewhere in NY clubland there's a DJ with a wicked sense of humor who will spin this tonight when things get in full meth fueled swing! (Warning:NSFW)


  1. Hey Ernie,, how's your sex life?

    Poultry. There's too much plucking and not enough f*ing.

  2. Actually, the reference to chickens is an allusion to hens and hen nights where Ernie performs as a male stripper.

  3. hmmmm, i'll have to check the accuracy of that one! but interesting!

  4. and here's what i found: Just before the flub, Anastos told weatherman Nick Gregory, “It takes a tough man to make a tender forecast,” a play on an old chicken commercial.

    nothing came up in reference to him being a stripper which i highly doubt would fly w/ a fox news affiliate anchor position. where in the world did you get that idea?

  5. In a the NY Times City Room Blog For Anastos and Chicken Pluckers, It’s Only Words the consensus is clearly on "keeping at it", or "keep working".

    I think it's really best explained as a euphamism for sex, with no less an authority than Queen Elizabeth to back this up.

    "Have her then, but you're a lordly fool. She's been plucked since I saw her last, and not by you... it takes a woman to know it."

    Of course, it could also be suggestive of masturbation with the motion of plucking feathers away from the body.

    Ernie's own slip of the tongue is the real smoking gun here (if you'll pardon the puns and mixed metaphor).

    Either way, keep plucking them chickens.
