Watch Fox & Friends Try to Roast Tiny Marshmallows With Their Hands

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Chris Wallace, son of Mike, may be a creepo Republican apologist, but he occasionally asks really great tough questions even of his own team. Watch in horror alongside him, as he realizes Steve Doocy of Fox & Friends is roasting marshmallows with his hands. (They not only reject global warming, they also don’t believe those “experts” who claim “fire is hot.”) But then Brian Kilmeade jumps in to save the day, with a plastic spoon. “No no no, not plastic!” shouts Doocy! “It’s bad for the environment!” And that’s when they fired Steve Doocy.

Gretchen? She wasn’t valedictorian of her high school class for nothing. “These two guys,” she says, falteringly, “I don’t know what they’re doing.”

“I’m thinking what all of your viewers are thinking,” Wallace scoffs, unable to believe his eyes. Then he breathes for a beat, looking to see if Roger Ailes is within hearing distance. “Which is?” asks Kilmeade, because he is an idiot.

“What a bunch of dopes.”

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

    Are they at least using Roger Ailes's blubber for the fuel?

    • YasserArraFeck

      Screw ANWR, Drill Ailes, Baby, Drill Ailes

      • http://wonkette.com/ weejee

        Be good for what Ailes America. None novocaine, also, too.

      "Call me Isreal…"

      • NorthStarSpanx

        I don't think even Todd Palin (our blue-eyed Eskimo) would burn Ailes blubber, you don't burn rancid oil – even in times of starvation.

  • Generation[redacted]

    That is exactly the kind of awareness and critical thinking required for their brand of news analysis.

    • PsycWench

      Don't forget planning and thinking ahead.

    • HistoriCat

      Fox's finest hour.

  • Barbara_

    At least they didn't try to bob for french fries.

    • nounverb911

      That would make a fortune on Pay-for-view.

    • eggsacklywright

      Next week: making s'mores with a flamethrower.

      • BoatOfVelociraptors

        Hey now. There's a fine line between stupid and awesome. Taking some blacksmithing tongs to a smore and blasting it with a propane flamethrower would be badass. Pinching a baby marshmallow over a decorative flame, not so much.

        Even a creme brulee is more punk rock than these twits.

    • chicken_thief

      Yet….

  • sbj1964

    They truly are stupid.The company Limo at Fox News is the short bus.

    • Boojum

      I am dumber now. I don't think I can work any more today, because I don't understand "law" or "discrimination" stuff.

  • http://wonkette.com ChillBill

    Early humans figured this one out thousands of years ago.

    • Serolf_Divad

      Was that before or after the Flood?

    • kyeshinka

      Just 4,000 years ago, which is when Adam and Jesus worked at Slate Gravel Co.

      • NorthStarSpanx

        If you are even suggesting perhaps even a hint at evolution, they'll try roasting you with their fingers also too.

    Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right….

    • PinkoPopulist

      Let's face it, no one is in the middle here…except maybe Gretchen in the middle of an Eiffel Tower if ya know what I mean!

    • http://wonkette.com ChillBill

      Needs moar ear slicing.

  • nounverb911

    Have they blamed Obama for their burnt fingers yet?

    • Serolf_Divad

      No doubt some Federal regulation prevented them from using a stick… or having a brain, for that matter.

    • http://wonkette.com ChurchofRealism

      OK, this comment, right here, a winner.

  • http://wonkette.com ChillBill

    Burn, motherfucker, burn.

  • PinkoPopulist

    I was sincerely hoping the entire set burnt down.

    • kittensdontlie

      Some say the world will end in fire,
      Some say in ice.
      From what I’ve tasted of desire
      I hold with those who favor fire.
      But if it had to perish twice,
      I think I know enough of hate
      To say that for destruction ice
      Is also great
      And would suffice.

      —Robert Frost

  • Come here a minute

    Chris, Fox viewers would think that if they were not also dopes. What they're thinking is, "Yummy mushmellows!"

  • Lascauxcaveman

    Jackasses. Johnny Knoxville says U R doin it rong.

  • Estproph

    The hosts of Fox and Friends don't have to worry about getting burned. They are constructed entirely of derp.

    "Steve, it would be so cool if you roasted marshmallows on the air. If you did that, I would do anything you say, anything."

  • PinkoPopulist

    Also, too. A little late to the party on this clip, no?

    • Mahousu

      Perhaps, though somehow they don't seem to have gotten any smarter in the last couple of years.

      • PinkoPopulist

        There is no doubt that if Gallup did an IQ tracking poll it would show a consistent downward slope. The entire show is a deep, deep vortex of stupidity. They are all so dumb that they make each other dumber just by sitting next to each other everyday.

    Wow, this is like two years old, right? I mean, Gretchen hasn't gotten her Brazilian which I noticed as she slowly recrosses her legs, like she does every segment.

  • MissTaken

    The stupid, it burns.

    • eggsacklywright

      Kill it with fire!

    • Sophist[Kochblocker]

      The trick, MissTaken, is not minding that it burns.

      • Steverino247

        T.E. Lawrence libel!!!!

    • Wadisay

      Gretch "didn't want to go out like a dope," so she's going to talk about tax cuts. Hahahaha, FAIL!!!

  • hagajim

    Has the Rmoney campaign dumbed these idiots down, or have they always been dumb? Also, if I were a Faux watcher (like most of the mouth breathers are) – I might start wondering what the hell I was watching.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    I hope they decide to do a fondue soon!

  • rickmaci

    OMG. A couple of boobs. And the two idiot guys.

  • hagajim

    Gretchen didn't want to go out on Friday as a dope – but she started the week as one on Monday.

      When I was a stoopid youth in Texas, we used to 'tease' people by telling them to hold their tongue and say 'I am so we todd did' and then laugh hilariously at them.

    I don't watch the Fox Newz, is this a children's program?

  • sharethegrief

    That's the first time Steve Doocy ever sat on fur.

      Unless you count Ron Jeremy's chest.

    Fox and Friends' snuff film will consist wholly of previously aired material.

    Even Homer Simpson knows one should obey the laws of thermodynamics.

    • sbj1964

      The entire cast at Fox&Friends make Homer look like an Einstein.

  • http://facethesuncastnoshadow.wordpress.com/ Mumbletypeg

    I wanna see how Wallace sizes up the next scene, in which Doocy pulls a Good Will Hunting and suggests he & Gretchen cut loose and "eat a bunch of caramels."

  • LibertyLover

    Sitting on ice blocks and roasting MINI marshmallows (not even full size marshmalllows) with their hands and a plastic (no, that won't melt) fork. If that isn't an indication of what type of information you can get on Fox News, I don't know what is.
    (Future Darwin award winners?)

    Let's send them camping and see if they get eaten by bears. It will make for great TV.

    • emmelemm

      I would, in fact, pay to watch that. (Pay Per View!)

    • ThundercatHo

      Remember Foxy Friends to keep all the food inside your tent and that bacon grease makes a great bear repellant.

  • rickmaci

    Q. How many FauxNoozyies does it take to change a light bulb?
    A. None. They would rather sit in the dark and blame Obama for the lack of electricity.

    • PsycWench

      It's funny because it's true.

  • Not_So_Much

    If they aren't willing to hold them in their sneering mouths, I don't believe they love 'Murka enough to be on the teevee.

  • BaldarTFlagass

    “What a bunch of dopes.”

    Anybody else here remember that brilliant Steve Martin short story, "The Day the Dopes Came Over?"

    • Toomush_Infer

      No, but then I really don't need anything….just this chair…and this lamp….

      • BaldarTFlagass

        The internet can do anything:
        I was sitting at home, peeking through the blinds at my neighbour's wife, minding my own business, when my doorbell rang.
        "Who's there?" I shouted. "We don't know," came the reply. I immediately knew the dopes had come over.
        I opened the door and invited them in. I was happy to have company even if they were a bunch of dopes.
        "Well, what brings you over this way?" I queried.
        "Yup." "Yup." "Yup." "Yup," they said.
        "Would you like some coffee?" I asked.
        "Gol," said one dope, "how long have we been here?"
        "About two minutes."
        "Gol, we should have left hours ago!"
        And they packed up some of my things and lumbered out.
        "Goodbye Dopes!" I shouted.
        They turned to me and shouted back, "Goodbye, you big fuckin' idiot!"

  • ThankYouJeebus

    They've just been invited to host a masters science class at Liberty University.

  • Dudleydidwrong

    One would expect six-year-olds to abstain from that kind of behavior, so to make judgments about the Faux Snooze crew you have to go down further in the chronological age category–four-year-olds? three? "Isn't that cute, dear. Our baby is roasting marshmallows over an open fire with his fingers. In fifteen years he'll be ready to work for Faux." America's dumbest criminals.

  • CrunchyKnee

    Fire is hot, you can't explain that.

    • Caelan Aegana

      Fucking marshmallows, how do they work?

  • sbj1964

    I can't wait to hear what Jon Stewart is going to say on this one.

  • Toomush_Infer

    "Because I really don't want to go out as a dope, I'm going to talk tax policy with you, Chris"….this, this is the icing on the cake!…

  • BoroPrimorac

    In order to convince the rednecks who watch our show that we're just like them, we need to act like Honey Boo Boo's family at a Chinese restaurant.

  • freakishlywrong

    You'd burn marshmallows too if MSNBC was beating you in the ratings, (prime time, not the awful morning shit).

  • Blueb4sinrise

    When I read our Editrix's headline , I wondered, 'What could this possibly mean? Some obscure metaphor ? Buttsechs? Drinky thing? Veiled insult to Jebbus or Mos'hammed?
    No, it is a real thing.

    • emmelemm

      I know, I was trying to figure out how "tiny hands" was actually a metaphor for "tiny penis" and how, exactly, burning marshmallows fit in to the sex act.

  • PsycWench

    I think there could be a country song written about this episode.

    • JustPixelz

      Mah dawg died this morning
      Mah truck done lost its muffler
      Mah wife she's a cheatin'
      But at least I'm not Steve Doocey.

      • PsycWench

        Works for me. Ooh, ooh, how about an adaptation of Nine Inch Nails' "Hurt"?

        I…
        burned myself today…
        because I didn't know…
        fire was really hot…

    • MinAgain

      I believe there already has been.

      Marshmallow fell into a burning ring of fire.
      Hand went down, down, down, and the flame went higher.
      And it burns, burns, burns, the ring of fire.
      The ring of fire.

    Ever get the idea that if you paint a tunnel into the side of a building, the Faux and Fiends guys would try to run into the tunnel?

  • SoBeach

    And yet not one single Fox fan is going wonder how this makes them look. Not one.

  • AbandonHope_

    I'm fairly sure I've seen episodes of Yo Gabba Gabba where the cast was more intelligent.

    I mean, sweet mother of Pepsi. I had to double-check the URL to make sure I wasn't accidentally reading the Onion, but no. One idiot literally tried to roast marshmallows by holding them above a fire, and another idiot thinks plastic is fireproof.

    And millions of idiots just like them are going to vote for Romney.

    Did he refer to Gretchen's hoo-hah as a "split verdict"?

  • PinkoPopulist

    I can't really watch these videos with the sound on in my office, but I can't possibly imagine anything they say would make it any funnier than it is without sound. It's like watching a bunch of autistic children witness fire for the first time. These are grown adults, granted adults with low IQs, but one would expect they would at least act like they've seen a fire before…or does Ailes keep them locked away in gimp outfits the other 21 hours of the day?

  • http://www.themindisaterriblething.com skmind

    It was suspenseful till the very end. Two douche-bags and two boobs inches from proving themselves combustible, or having the fire marshal shut down their set.

    Steve: Now Fox News has discovered this piece of extraordinary film from the Watts riots many years ago in which a black kid who looks a little like Obama, although his back is to the camera, says…well, you watch and decide for yourselves. It's disgusting. How can this man be President of our country, Gretchen?

    Gretchen: I couldn't watch it all because of the blood and communism. And was that Jeremiah Ayers in there kissing the Obama man? Brian, your thoughts on this shocking piece of video?

    Obama should be impeached immediately. He has bought totally into the Marx Brothers teachings that lead to these kind of incidents. Christmas is under attack. I thought I saw Michelle in there, too. Did you see her, Chris?

    Wallace: I would shoot myself. except for Roger Ailes paying me so much money.

  • shelwood46

    Just like with the Romney campaign, it looks like the Dems have snuck an operative into Fox News. "Hey, guys, here's a great idea, let's build a set out of ice. Why? Um, to prove global warming isn't real. (They're buying it.) And we'll have a live fire pit in the middle of the set, with a real fire. Don't worry, it's fine to have a fire indoors. We'll give you marshmallows! (OMG, they're buying it. Now I'll give them mini-marshmallows with no forks and see what happens.)"

  • CommieLibunatic

    I have no words for this one. My tiny libtard mind can't repel stupid of that magnitude.
