There’s nothing funnier than watching Laura DiBatista walk into a telephone pole while interviewing a mother or gearing Anne Mroczkowski say the Toronto Blue Jays had their “cocks cleaned” by the opposing team. Our friends at Media Matters have put together a highlight reel (or “lowlight” depending on your point of view) of the Top Ten moments from the Three Stooges on the Curvy Couch, aka Fox & Friends on the Fox “News” Channel.
