Having explained away his missing wedding ring away earlier last Saturday,* Fox & Friends Weekend co-host Dave Briggs decided to clear up another misconception, i.e., that he was the pampered “princess”** that he had portrayed himself to be early in his stint at F&FW.”*** Rather, he was a proud member of the hoi polloi.
During a minimum-wage-increase story (mentioning tip wages staying the same) read by co-anchor Alisyn Camerota, Dave interjected, “$2.13.” Aly continued, “That’s what I was making as a waitress back then.” Dave replied, “Me, too. Ten years ago.”
Appearing to not believe his ears, co-anchor Clayton Morris commented, “Wait a minute. I just heard something that I don’t believe I’ve ever heard before. You were a waiter?” Dave answered, “Absolutely. I was a waiter for many years. I know that you guys think that I never worked before I arrived here on this couch.” Aptly, Aly replied, “Right.” After Dave iterated his long work experience as a waiter, dubiously, Aly asked, “Where? Where? Name the restaurant.”
Dave responded, “There were two restaurants. One is a local restaurant and the other is gonna conjure up graphic [unknown ellipsis].” Then Clayton teased, “Did it start with an ‘h’ and have two “o’”s in it?” Refute Clayton quickly, Dave immediately replied, “Red Robin.” Approvingly, Aly added, “Red Robin. Oh, I love Red Robin. Those cheeseburgers: Ah! Come to mama!”
Speaking of which, the self-professed “mama’s boy” wanted his fans to know that he was not entirely entangled in his mom’s apron strings.**** In short, asserting some independence and paraphrasing Britney, Dave appeared to proclaim, “I’m not that indolent!”
