Posted in Family Guy, hee!, North Americana, video on February 15, 2009 by jetsamjr

The infamous Christian Bale rant has been on the internet for more than a week now, which is real-world time is equivalent to approximately three-and-a-half years. Nevertheless, new remixes are still emerging. Here is Family Guy‘s (admittedly amusing) take:

You guys, I have some terrible news: after 20 years, The Simpsons has a new opening credits sequence:

Eeeewww it’s all new and different and I hate it. This is worse than the time that… um, it’s worse than the time that… well, it’s not worse than any other times, because this is the worst thing that’s ever happened!

Hate to say this, but: time to kill it, Groening.

When I was in year nine, some kid brought printouts to school depicting various members of the Simpson clan doing each other (I recall a particularly graphic one of Bart diddling Marge). We all thought it was hilarious, but it turns out we were wrong: that alligator was sexually harassing that woman. I mean, those pictures depicted child pornography! Dun dun!:

A Supreme Court judge has ruled that an internet cartoon, in which child characters resembling those from The Simpsons engage in sexual acts, is child pornography… [the judge] found that, while The Simpsons characters had hands with four fingers and their faces were “markedly and deliberately different to those of any possible human being”, the mere fact that they were not realistic representations of human beings did not mean that they could not be considered people.

Dumb. Next up: judge finds Wile E. Coyote guilty of attempted murder.

I’ve spent the last week (finally) catching up on Mad Men season one, so:

Haunting, evocative and classy.
