Ron Burgundy, meet Jodi Applegate

Jodi Applegate is kind of a big deal, you know. She's an anchorwoman for a big New York City TV station. People know her, love her, respect her. So she doesn't have patience for unruly jokester filmmakers who screw up her important newscast with wacky pranks.

When he leaned in close to the grinder, Casey suddenly shrieked as if he was injured and popped the ketchup packs, smearing the red sauce across his throat before collapsing on the sidewalk screaming.

Seconds later, he was on his feet laughing, "We were just kidding," but Applegate was already yelling at them as the camera panned around the scene wildly.

"No!" Applegate shouted. "We were trying to do a serious thing here, and this is not funny.

"Do not - do not be upset," she told viewers.

Applegate's protracted, angry reaction to what appeared to be a silly stunt struck many as being out of proportion.

A Ch. 5 spokesman said that Applegate's tirade was the anchor simply "doing her job" and that the station was not going to "tolerate that kind of behavior."

See for yourself here.

Remember, if these guys are selling anything on the Internet don't buy it because those guys are jerks.

Ohmigod. She's doing little clips of bike robbery, but she's acting like she's Christiane Amanpour.
