Heckler Wrangler and "Trading Places" star Al Franken squared off with Fox honcho Roger Ailes at an upper crust battle zone during lunch this week. Franken tried prodding Ailes into being a guest on Franken's fledging talk show, stating how he had been a guest for Ailes in the early days. Grove gives us this exchange:
"Yeah," Ailes fired back, "but you were the only guest who ever demanded to be paid. I think we had to give you $12."
"That was for cab fare," the comedian insisted.
A word of warning to the accountants at the new network--you may be inundated with receipts for gum and Oreos in the future.
