Gotta love synthespians. A spokesmodel that works for free!
Have we ever chatted about “Family Guy”?
Here is the back-story: in the original run of the Fox series, there was a joke in what is in my humble opinion – the pinnacle of poor taste. I forget the setup of the scene, but Stewie utters “shake me like a British nanny”.
This was topical at the time since a widely publized case on the East coast involved an untrained British nanny who caused the death of the infant in her care by shaking. Call me old-fashioned, but a line labelled “good taste” was crossed. I tuned out.
Fast -forward to a business dinner with my wife IRL’s boss (at the time) who encouraged me to give it another try. New writers, new blood- more clever writing.
Again, I forget the setup, but there is some third party trying to persuade Lois to experiment with girl-on-girl action to which Peter utters:
“Good luck, pal. I’ve been barking up that tree for fifteen years”. – Peter Griffin (Seth MacFarlane)
P.S. Labor Day in the States – for the benefit of international readers – is typically a “day off”, ergo – no one in the office, no one goofing off reading webcomics. Prove me wrong and share this little bit of comickry, please.
