'Keep F--ing That Chicken,' PopWatchers

PopWatch is still investigating whether Fox 5 News anchor Ernie Anastos’ “Keep f—ing that chicken” outburst (embedded below) was really a subliminal cross-promotion for KJLA TV’s Cannabis Planet. One thing we know for sure is that “Keep f—ing that chicken” works as a blanket retort of friendly support in nearly all personal and professional situations. For example, Michael Slezak just told me he’d received two dinner rolls instead of one at the create-your-own-pasta place. Oh, really? How nice for you! Keep f—ing that chicken, buddy! This qualifies as “professional” because we are both currently at the office.

Leave your best setups for “Keep f—ing that chicken” in the comments, before this tenderly baked slice of ridiculata becomes annoying.

    The look on the co-anchors face is PRICELESS!

    • Jane

      She was like, “WTH? Do over please!”

  • silver

    Gonna be home late for dinner tonight. Have to figure out how to boost productivity at the Tyson Plant.

    Alright then, keep … that chicken.

  • JB

    It takes a tough popwatcher to make such a tender post…keep f- ing that chicken Annie!

  • Melissa

    I was watching the actual broadcast when it aired, and when I heard it I though, “OMG, did he actually just say that?!” I though it was possible he said “plucking”, but his co-anchor’s face told me he didn’t!

    • Chris

      I thought his intent was “plucking” as well, but there may have been a Freudian slip in there.

  • analiesejoy

    my favourite thing about this are the tags: ‘news you can use’, ‘things that are classy’….lol!!

  • Chaddogg

    Ladies and gentlemen — your “I want to go to there” of Fall 2009.

  • Christyne

    You HAVE to pause it at 0:06 to really get the effect of the co-anchor’s face LMAO!!!

  • David Crosby

    He said PLUCKING!

    • Chappel

      Yeah, he clearly said “pluckin'”. What’s the big deal? Has EW been taken over by fourth graders?

  • David Crosby

    Didn’t y’all hear the “L” sound in particular

    • Kevin

      I’ve watched it 10 times so far. Still not hearing either an “L” OR a “P”. I think he MEANT to say plucking, but he most definitely did not.

      • Christina

        Definitely didn’t hear the P or L sound either. I think it was an accident, but the big F definitely made an appearance here LOL!

        Almost as bad as when I was watching my local news a year ago, and the lady said c**t cottage instead of cottage country. Almost died laughing when I saw that. This would’ve been no different xD

  • tlntdtnth87

    I think he’s going to propose tonight.

    We’ll girl keep f*#&ing that chicken!

  • D

    I listened to it several times and tried to hear “plucking.” Yall must have better ears than I do, so keep fucking that chicken.

  • Dr. Zaius

    The only scenario I can see this truly work in would be the daughter revealing the pregnancy to the disgruntled mother who hates her son in law.

    “It’s gonna be a boy!”
    “Alright then, keep f—— that chicken…”t

  • Morgan Katrina

    It gets funnier and funnier every time I watch it!!! The co-anchor’s face says it all. lol!!!

  • Honey

    This may replace “See You Later” as the casual goodbye in our culture.

  • Jane

    Girl 1: “I know he’s old, but he’s got a lot of money. Should I marry him?”

    Girl 2: Don’t know, but if I were you, I’d keep f—–g that chicken.
