Noah Garfinkel: “Mike Huckabee has a weekend show on Fox and we thought it would be really funny to put on suits and eat way too many weed cookies and go see the show. It turns out that it’s just terrifying.”

Joe Mande: “The experience of going to Fox News on pot cookies is — I’ve never been more scared and bored in my life.”

Garfinkel: “They have a mirror to make the audience look twice as big so we were also seated next a mirror, so we could just look at ourselves being stoned.”

Mande: “The reason we put on suits was we were afraid we weren’t going to fit in — we’re like, we have to dress like Republicans. Not a necessary thing. Everyone else was wearing sweatpants.”
Mande: “We went back to my apartment [after the show] because I had DVR’d the episode — we wanted to see the show we just saw, so we’re still high and we started watching ‘Huckabee.’ Even though we were in the front row, they managed to edit us out of every single [shot] … We were either so high and scary-looking that Fox News didn’t feel comfortable putting us on television, or we were so high we never even went to a ‘Huckabee’ taping.”
