Honored at the first
BFRH in 1987
|Every year, the Orange County Hash hosts the Betty Ford Rehab Hash. This is "spring training" for beer drinkers looking forward to a long, blurry, defocused, summer. This page records and celebrates the special personalities who have been recognized at the annual fiasco.|
Betty Ford II
Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker
The crooked filanderer and his make-up challenged wife - a fine example to us all.
Honored for their contributions to research into ethics and morality.
(It's depressingly easy to find pictures of Tammy..but not so the couple together)
Betty Ford III
Sonny and Cher
(Walking Small and Mooner)
Sonny, the notorious wife beater and substance abuser, went on to be mayor of Palm Springs (coincidence? I think not) and congressman for the 44th district before meeting his tree.
Cher went on to develop a greatly enhanced figure.
"I got you Babe"
Betty Ford IV

"Back in the Saddle Again!"
Betty Ford V
"I did it my way"
Betty Ford VI
Apparently, Mr Liberace was a homeowner of some repute
"Oh how I hated to leave my friend's behind"
Betty Ford VII
Gigo does Elvis better than Elvis did Elvis
Betty Ford VIII
Don't leave him out in the sun or he'll melt. Michael was included so that assorted hashers could demonstate how hard that moonwalk thing is. Did he get the monkey off his back yet?
Betty Ford IX
Another of the make-up challenged. Liz gets through husbands at about the same pace she reputedly does gin. An impressive appetite on both counts!
"Queen of De Nile"
"Denial ain't just a river in Egypt. "
Betty Ford X
Bob's just a little older than dirt. He's causing the medical community to review their previous stance which held that "dead" versus "alive" is a black and white issue
"Thanks for the Mammaries"
Betty Ford XI
The original and best "dead head". Jerry was a repository for more chemicals during his lifetime than many a fine pharmacy. It may have been drying out that killed him. Reality can be very bright.
"Grateful for Head"
Betty Ford XII
Like the flyer said, the Mick led the majors in stolen cases. He had 536 home runs, swinging from both sides of the plate.
"You make my liver quiver"

One point of clarification: I have absolutely no influence over the choice of celebrity. I am merely the conduit for your suggestion.
The "Gods of Hashing"(tm) will decide.
