    [what did she say?] Blocking / blogging the truth out of ...

    Subtitles on youtube, as everyone knows, aren't always reliable. I listened to this bit again and again but really couldn't make sense of what she is saying. I suspect that the subtitles are wrong here. Really appreciate it if someone can help out.

    "This week, we are ____?___ the truth out of chicken"

    Many Thanks

    not a teacher

    I'm pretty sure she says: "This week we're plucking the truth out of chicken".
    It's a play on the verb "to pluck".
    See definitions (1) and (1.2).
