Dave Briggs: “Still trying to purge that image from my mind.” Fox & Friends Weekend co-anchor Clayton Morris made an unfortunate, indelible impression on his audience and his co-hosts Dave Briggs and Alisyn Camerota this early morn. After dunk or “drunk” tank duds Friday and Saturday (where no F&F or F&FW co-anchor was soaked despite their teases of the respective Cinco de Mayo quiz loser taking a margarita bath), Clayton regrettably peppered the post-holiday program today with mental pictures of his posterior this morning. Arg! To paraphrase Lucy Kaplansky, please don’t let your “Manhattan moon be back tonight”!
After a story on the lunar phenomenon last night, Aly remarked, “Dave Briggs was looking forward with great anticipation to the supermoon.”* When Dave indicated that it did not quite meet his expectations, Clayton jested, “So, he didn’t see it last night. So, this morning in my office, I reenacted it for him.” Grimacing and arching her eyebrows in feigned disgust, Aly asked, “A super moon?”
Without apology, Clayton ribaldly replied, “Mm, hmm. I mean this morning.” Sighing deeply, a smiling Dave looked away and then turned to the viewers, declaring, “Still trying to purge that image from my mind. And, I will be for the rest of the day!” As Clayton beamed broadly, Aly acerbically quipped, “Mm. Yeah, as soon as I stick hot pokers in my eyes.”
Clayton and Dave: Mano a mano? High moon in Manhattan!
