Here's a phrase you don't hear on live TV too often (NSFW)

I love news bloopers, and this one is a doozy. WNYW's Ernie Anastos actually said the phrase "keep f**king that chicken" live on television the other night during a newscast.

The look on the female anchor's face is priceless. I think I'll take a screen grab of it and use it as my Twitter or Facebook avatar.

Andy Dick ain't lovin' McDonald's

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 19th 2009 7:01PM
If you came here from Google after searching for "Andy Dick," "Ronald McDonald," "chicken," and "machete," then this is the post for you. Andy Dick teamed up with PETA to protest in front of the offices of McDonald's about the way the company treats their chickens. Looks a little bit like a low-budget version of The Dark Knight. More pics here.

The new Burger King commercial really baffles me - VIDEO

Burger KingFor once I'm not talking about any of the Burger King spots that have that creepy King guy, with his terrifying blank stare and equally scary son. No, I'm talking about the commercial with the guy hiding in a motel late at night, eating one of the new Cheesy Bacon Tender Crisp chicken sandwiches. A cow shows up at the door to confront him ... because the guy isn't eating burgers.

Huh? Why would a cow -- which is made of burgers -- be upset that a customer isn't eating him or his friends? Does he own stock in the company and wants customers to eat burgers instead of chicken? That wouldn't even make sense because even if the cow did hold some BK stock* selling chicken would be just as good as selling meat. Or maybe this is an example of the "death wish" type of advertising that Pete Campbell talked about in the Sterling Cooper pitch to Lucky Strike?

Even those cute M&M guys don't go around saying "eat me."

*This will probably be the only time in my life that I write about cows owning stock in a corporation.

Stupid non-controversy "controversy" of the day: Boston Market ads - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 19th 2008 1:01PM
Boston MarketIf there's one thing we can all hate the Internet for is that it has given an amazing array of people the ability to just sit back and complain about everything in the world, even if it doesn't warrant complaining or insults (especially if it doesn't). Today's example: the new commercials for Boston Market (video after the jump).

The ad shows those twins that have been doing the most recent ads for the chain talking about the new meals they offer that cost only $4.99. Only the brother on the left in the video is clearly saying something else, "$5.99," and they dubbed a "4" over the "5" when the price dropped. For some reason, this is causing controversy on blogs from Gawker to Mediabistro's AgencySpy. Oooooo, they caught them in a "lie."

Survivor logoDid you watch Survivor: China last night?

The season premiere of the CBS reality show got a 4.9 rating among adults 18 to 49 (the juicy demographic the networks love). Even though it was the highest rated show last night, it was down 25% from the "Cook Islands" season and down 14% from the "Fiji" season.

Meet the cast of Survivor: China

survivor; chinaIt's hard to believe, but next month marks the 15th installment of Survivor. This season, they're in China and the producers are getting all literary and stuff. The teams will begin in Shanghai and then go to a Buddhist temple where they will be stripped of all "worldly possessions" except the clothes on their backs. They will split into two teams and be given a copy of Sun Tzu's The Art of War, which will apparently come in handy this season.

Today, CBS introduced the new 16-member cast. You can't tell much about their personalities from the general biographical information given out, but there are a few stand-outs already. For instance, there's a grave digger, a chicken farmer (whose name is 'Chicken'), a Christian talk radio host, a professional wrestler (Ashley Massaro), and a hiking guide from Kalispell, Montana. Okay, that last one is only interesting to me because she comes from my hometown. You can read more about the castaways here.

Survivor: China debuts on CBS at 8 pm on September 20th.

Family Guy: Blind Ambition

by Walter J. Keegan, Jr., posted May 15th 2005 9:28PM
Family GuyWelcome back Mort! Boy do I miss the Jerky Boys. The chicken scene was a little long, but the Raiders payoff was worth it. I like the Cleveland back story, who would have thought? Nickel sex has to be a dirty, dirty sin. Even Gary the No-Trash Cougar thinks so. The only reason you ever read the Guinness Book of World Records was to see the guy with the long fingernails and the twins on the bikes. Admit it! I wonder how much that Star Wars license would have cost if this wasn't FOX? It all leads to the question of the day: Do you think Joan Cusack could fit in a mailbox?
