Oh great. Now I’m going to have to explain salad tossing to my mother. Wasn’t telling her about tea bagging enough, Fox News?
Check urban dictionary? Like…every time you say something that sounds like it *could* be a sex act you should get your fact checkers on it?

This isn’t as bad as that Cleveland ABC affiliate’s story on a steamroller accident.
This is not bad. Relax everyone, he was obviously referring to the literal (again with the literal?) meaning of “tossing salad” (you know when you have real, actual salad, and you use the salad tongs to toss it around), so what’s the big deal?
If for some he said to another anchor: “you’ll be tossing that salad later, won’t you?” – That might be bad. But this, come on.
Wasnt this on the daily show as the clip of the day thing?
The other option, of course, is that the writers knew EXACTLY what a “tossed salad” was, and wanted to see if the anchor would react. I feel pretty certain if that were my job, the other writers and I would have competitions to get as many sexual innuendos as humanly possible onto the air.
