Betty
Betty Ford
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's been "round the block" a couple of times, herself. She started the Betty Ford Clinic so that she'd have somewhere to sober up after particularly heavy weekends. It was a natural extension to add a few rooms so that her bud's could pop in.
Betty is portrayed in Hashdom by Caboose

Tammy Faye Betty Ford II
1988
Jim and Tammy Faye Bakker
(Flop-Flop)
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)
Sonny and Cher Betty Ford III
1989
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"

Gene Autry Betty Ford IV
1990
Gene Autry
(Woody Driver)
"Ten Cowboy Commandments" written by Gene Autry
Commandment 1: "He must not take unfair advantage of an enemy."
Commandment 2: "He must never go back on his word."
Commandment 3: "He must always tell the truth."
Commandment 4: "He must always be gentle with children, elderly people and animals."
Commandment 5: "He must not possess racially or religious intolerant ideas."
Commandment 6: "He must help people in distress."
Commandment 7: "He must be a good worker."
Commandment 8: "He must respect women, parents, and his nation's laws."
Commandment 9: "He must neither drink or smoke."
Commandment 10: "He must be a patriot."

(Gene's score against this list is not recorded
but it might be significant that he grouped
drinking and smoking into a single line)

"Back in the Saddle Again!"

Frank Sinatra Betty Ford V
1991
Frank Sinatra
(Eject)

Elvis Betty Ford VII
1993 (Oxnard)
Elvis
(Gecko)
Gigo does Elvis better than Elvis did Elvis
Michael Jackson Betty Ford VIII
1994 (Oxnard)
Michael Jackson
(SandPiper)
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?
Liz Taylor Betty Ford IX
1995 (Oxnard)
Elizabeth Taylor
(Momsickle)
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. "
- Mark Twain (1835-1910)

Bob Hope Betty Ford X
1996
Bob Hope
(Dr. Deekay)
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"

Jerry Garcia Betty Ford XI
1997
Gerry Garcia
(Hozer)
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"

Mickey Mantle Betty Ford XII
1998
Mickey Mantle
(Yeast Infection)
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"

Nominations are never open for the next Betty Ford personality, and credit is never given. Life's like that. e-mail me! if you have a candidate.

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.



Thanks to Whack for providing the chronology and for coming up with some of the peektures
