FDH Lounge Show #47: February 25, 2009

By Rick Morris

The 47th edition of THE FDH LOUNGE on (Wednesday, 7-10 PM EST) is completely given over to our fourth semi-annual celebration of female celebrity pulchritude – or, in common parlance (and boy, do we hope that all of you have a good sense of humor!), our fourth semi-annual Fantasy I’d Hit That Draft. We’re even breaking format and leaving aside THE FANTASYDRAFTHELP.COM INSIDER and THE GOON SQUAD in the final hour.

Yes, once The Opening Statements of The FDH Lounge Dignitaries and This Week In The FDH Lounge are behind us, the entire program will be a sports-style serpentine draft of female celebrities: in this case, athletes and women over 50. Our Dignitaries will draft an equal number of women in both categories and be judged by their peers on their sense of good taste. At the end of the evening’s proceedings, we will tally a winner on the judges’ scorecards.

Is Maria Sharapova hotter than Danica Patrick? Actually, that’s not a hypothetical question, but rather one deserving a firm and ripe yes, but we digress. For three hours, we will debate one another on these subjects, question one another’s eyesight and yes, dare we say even sexuality, and consider such questions as to whether Halle Berry’s sixth toe on her one foot renders her unattractive (this question arose during our first such draft and we graciously indicated that we’d tolerate her presence nonetheless!).

We’ll grant you that this is a program unlikely to win us any image awards from the National Organization for Women, but it’s honestly all in good fun and there’s nothing being discussed that’s worse than PG-13 rated. No Lounge programming that we produce during the year elicits stronger feedback and we look forward to entertaining the audience once again. As always, we urge you to check out our program archives as well on the FDH site.
