Protect Your Whatnots

Tonight on Canada Now, there was a report about high storm surges due to the recent inclement weather.  A part of the report showed (what I assume to be) a fisherman standing on a rocky shore.  He was holding the  microphone, which was odd in and of itself, and talking about the potential dangers of the tide pulling the earth back into the water.  The reporter (off camera) asks, barely heard (because the guy being interviewed held the mic): “are you worried about having to protect your yard, fields and whatnot?”
I found the *unprofessional* use of the word “whatnot” rather humourous.

That is all.
