Fox & “Fiends” Halloween

October 31, 2009

What was in Fox & Fiends Weekend witches’ brew this morning? According to the author’s recollections still clouded by this intriguing intoxicant, the odd ingredients were co-anchor Clayton Morris’ missing wedding ring, Rick Reichmuth’s piece of chocolate corset, and Dave Briggs’s drink of Cosmo with a dance by Alisyn Camerota to conjure up the potion’s magic. Eerily, this strange and powerful potation seemed to have worked its evil, making a “show about nothing” eminently watchable.

Seemingly, the first element placed into the blackened kettle was Clayton’s wedding band to add a golden glow. (If so, his wife Sara may not be overly pleased.) Apparently, the second was Rick’s strip of chocolate cloth torn from a maiden’s bodice. (Viewers, whether F&F’s meteorologist did indeed lick the young New York Chocolate Show model’s corset as proffered has yet to be determined.) Then Dave seemed to have added a glass of his Sex and the City fave Cosmo. (During the show, he seemed to have enjoyed its effects as he transmogrified from a mild-mannered family guy to a zany Kramer nailing the Seinfeld character’s speech, mannerisms, and dance.)* For the diabolic denouement, the bewitching damsel Aly did her Elaine dance before the final curtain call.

An unforgettable show? Perhaps, so. Dear reader, when the evil elixir wears off, hopefully, the author can remember these things if they were so.

Briggs Bending It like Beckham

August 19, 2008

Fox & Friends guest host Dave Briggs continues to “bend it like Beckham.” Today, in a segment on bartenders’ political secrets, Dave said that he liked the survey question about which political party liked the fruity (or pink) drinks. Then he added, “I like the pink drinks.” Co-host Gretchen Carlson teased, “I saw you on the Sex and the City tour: you downed about ten of those cosmos (cosmopolitans).” Dave replied, “That says nothing about my political affiliation but I do enjoy a fruity drink.”

After yesterday’s admission that he sometime takes longer to get ready than his wife and his earlier feeding Clayton Morris a cupcake and sipping cosmopolitans on the Sex & the City tour, Dave seems to be following manbag-toting, man-embracing Brian Kilmeade’s example. Dave (and Brian) seems to be trying to bend it like Beckham in appealing to both straight and gay demographics with an androgynous appeal. Interestingly enough, all three guys are all married with children.
