‘Anchorman 2′ Set Reveals Champ Kind’s New Job: Whammy Chicken! — PIC

The post-Anchorman era has seen a wealth of new phrases enter the American lexicon. Since 2004, state school-educated young men and women (mostly men) everywhere have spouted exclamations like, “I love lamp!” and “Milk was a bad choice!” and “I’m in a glass case of emotion!” No movie in recent years has earned this level of quotability. So it’s no surprise that Anchorman 2 might plan to cash in on some of these memorable gems… although it’s kind of scraping the battle with this one: “Whammy!”

Anchorman - Whammy Chicken

Yes, the continuing adventures of Ron Burgundy will feature a fried chicken franchise borne from sexually confused cowpoke Champ Kind’s signature motto, “Whammy!” … the least memorable of the Anchorman catchphrases. The above picture was taken on the Anchorman 2 set by Jimmy Sobeck of Eat It Atlanta, depicting actor David Koechner’s likeness smiling atop a San Diego-based restaurant.

So are we to infer that Champ Kind has left the broadcasting business and taken to the food service industry? This makes us wonder what paths the other Channel 4 News Team members might have taken… does Brian Fantana own and operate a mini-golf emporium? Is Brick Tamland a bloodthirsty pirate? We’ll find out when the legend continues

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
