Local TV Food Segment Suggests Biscotti Goes Great With…Wait, What?

(By Frances Martel, Mediaite) - Ah, local news: a neverending fountain of stream-of-consciousness obscenity shocking and awing myriad housewives all over the nation. Today’s profane slip-up comes to us from Ohio’s WFMJ, where “Nancy from Sparkle” has a bold and tasteful suggestion for combining sweet and savory: “biscotti does go great with c**k.”

The segment, as the anchor explains before throwing to the makeshift kitchen studio where Nancy broadcasts from, is actually about coffee– “a necessity” for those watching the morning news, he suggests. To make the coffee experience more tasty, Nancy suggests biscotti, of which she is about to make the pistachio variety. And, yes, it should go great with coffee. Except, instead of “coffee,” she initially says “c**k,” immediately, but with little fanfare, correcting herself. Throwing back to the anchor, he also fails to mention (or laugh at) her slip.
