I’ve never watched this show, so I’ll leave it up to those who have. And isn’t the main character a Tea Party member?



  1. Fake says:

    Two different episodes, I believe.

  2. igeek says:

    No, Seth McFarland is. Idiot.

    • McCullough says:

      Seth McFarland is a member of the Tea Party? Again I’ve never seen the show, or any of his other cartoons, so how does that make me an idiot?

      • kjb434 says:

        nope, he makes fun of the Tea Party.

      • igeek says:

        Because the fictional character of Peter is of course nothing.

        No recognizing sarcasm is clue two.

        • MWD78 says:

          i just think McCullough doesn’t know the difference between Family Guy and American Dad. i’m pretty sure you could say Stan Smith is a Tea Partier.

  3. kjb434 says:

    Seth McFarland is full fledged liberal, but he is no holds bar on the comedy. Everybody is offended and fair game in his shows. Political correctness has no place and is often the target.

    In this episode, Peter (the lead and complete moron with no political affiliation) is duped into a muslim cell that is planning a bomb in the fictional town of Quahog, Rhode Island.

    I do feel the recent bombing is in the vein as John and Adam discussed on NoAgenda. They were thinking of something on the west coast and having some natural disaster component. I’m sure they will have a lot to say on Thursday…

  4. Shaun says:

    Wasn’t it just last week or so they mentioned we were overdue for the FBI fake terrorist plot that seems to happen every 6 weeks or so?

  5. super77 says:

    If the commenter above is correct, this was clearly a hoax. Why give the person that made this edit any traffic? Close comments and move on.

  6. TripHamer says:

    It’s all from the same episode however Peter was running over people with his car in the Marathon. Later in the episode he dialed the phone, twice, and two unknown explosions happened. Both scenes are unrelated to each other. Interpret it how you will.

    • MikeN says:

      South Park had an episode where they revealed that the writers of Family Guy are a group of sea creatures, who select balls with words. Every 5 balls, is then turned into a scene for the show.

  7. Mikey says:

    Different segments of the same episode.

  8. Tim says:

    That’s one heckofa butt-chin, Brownie.

  9. spsffan says:

    Never seen Family Guy? What kind of ignorant psychopath are you?

    It’s like The Simpsons on crank.

    And I’d bet Seth McFarland is a tea partier. But not a member of the Tea Party.

    • McCullough says:

      I saw the Simpsons back in the 90’s? Thought it was pretty funny, then I moved to a place that literally had no TV except for 3 UN-watchable Puerto Rican stations.

      So, virtually no TV. I don’t miss it.

      • spsffan says:

        Ah. I understand, and am somewhat jealous, but it still makes one culturally deficient.

        Unfortunately, one must know who Honey Boo Boo and Donald Trump are to get by in this world. Even if I insist on changing the channel when they come one. Add to the list:

        Any Kardashian (or even mention of them)
        George W. Bush
        Antonio Villaragosa (Los Angeles Mayor until 7/1)
        golf
        poker
        Mel Gibson
        Suzie Orman
        Rosie O’Donnell (except the Flintstones movie)
        Emeril Lagasse
        Michael Blumberg

        Well, it’s a pretty big list.

        • McCullough says:

          Puerto Rican comedy will cause you to lose your faith in humanity. All I can add to that is, Thank you Jeebus for Internet streaming.

          • pedro says:

            Indeed. Then again, there’s directv & adelphia (to mention 2) in PR.

        • bobbo, the pragmatic existential evangelical anti-theist and Jr Culture Critic says:

          HEY!!!–those are on my list.

          Somewhat dithering to add to it -but- gotta add “Any politician being interviewed about anything.”

          If you can’t predict word for word the nothing they have to say, then cartoons would be a stretch.

        • McCullough says:

          Pedro- not exactly PR but about 60 miles away, and yes things have changed, but I’d rather stream.

          Once you get away from commercials, you cant go back.

  10. Ya Ya Ya says:

    No. No hoax.

    The fact that a CARTOON depicting a real life event may be all the proof we need that the Boston Marathon bombing was done by an angry American or at least someone from a more developed country such as Canada, Germany, Great Britain, etc.

    And the reason you ask? Simple. Americans simply don’t have the imagination they once did to come up with plans like this on their own. All too often, Americans need – and get – ideas from the entertainment industry where they either imitate directly or build upon to get an even better plan. You just know that if anyone ever actually tried to drop an anvil on a roadrunner that it was an American! And who hasn’t seen a bombing or two even from Disney cartoons?

    Hey! I’m not knocking America. I’m a citizen too! But with cell phone technology and Hollywood leading America by it’s entertainment addicted nose it’s pretty clear that some angry idiot American just took it a step or two further for reasons we still don’t know, and may never know. Could that have been a Tea Party member? Yes! But it could just as well have been a Republican or even a Democrat.

    The fact that “Family Guy” cartoon has already done an episode about this very thing, which now seems to have manifested itself into real life, is all the proof I need that the Boston Marathon bombing was domestic. Because third world foreign terrorists simply don’t have the same access to the Internet connected world wide brain! And those who do have access to “the (Internet) collective” are probably too fat and lazy to even be angry or really even care.

    Now, there is another possibility too! It could be a very subversive plot by some U.S. government agency or government service company!!! Think about that! I won’t even go into the more crazy ideas about how some people think that mind control and/or crowd control techniques have been perfected in recent years. (Although you do have to sit back in wonderment when horrible companies like AT&T always continue to make a profit from the masses of idiots who willingly pay them.)

    For example, with the U.S. Defense Department facing potential budget cuts, a good old fashion bombing may be just the thing for someone like the CIA (which is partly funded through branches like the Army) to say something like, “we need more money to prevent things like this.” Whether the Defense Department says it or backers of the new and improved CISPA bill do it, you just know someone, or maybe all of them will point to the Boston incident as an example of why they need more laws or more money.

    … Either that or this cartoon was done afterwards. In which case, it’s in very bad taste which would be a very real possibility! “Family Guy” seems to pride itself on bad taste and political incorrectness. You might even say, Family Guy is popular due to it’s “shock and awe” appeal too. (Now, where have we heard that before? Hmmmm.)

    • Cap'n Kangaroo says:

      Someone took two unrelated scenes and edited them to make this clip. Seth McFarlane has blasted the mash-up as abhorrent.

  11. CrankyGeeksFan says:

    The Boston bombs were about 15 seconds apart. These were about seven seconds apart.

    • CrankyGeeksFan says:

      I saw this video after seeing videos of the Boston Marathon bombings.

      Even though Family Guy is an animated show, the sound of its explosions was unexpected and frightening.

  12. sargasso_c says:

    “the video has been removed by the user”

  13. youlikesickhumorornot says:

    examiner.com reports that…..

    ‘Family Guy’ Boston Marathon clips disgust show creator Seth MacFarlane

    But did anyone notice that on the “family feud” episode of Family Guy, when asked “your favorite holiday” Stewie says 9-11 !!

    youtube search >>> Family Guy-Lois Plays Family Feud

    Now Seth is disgusted…

  14. bobbo, mindless violence is a challenge to society and cooking clubs across America says:

    http://ibtimes.com/seth-mcfarlane-slams-family-guy-boston-marathon-explosion-hoax-video-1197101

    Clip is at link for a while at least. I don’t know what Seth is complaining about. His tasteless irreverent comedy is all too close to this event.

    He really ought to man up.

  15. Captain Obvious says:

    So basically, the manatees planned the whole thing.

  16. msbpodcast says:

    isn’t the main character a Tea Party member?

    Its a cartoon, so technically, Peter Griffin, the main character, can’t be a member of any political party.

    The fact that Seth McFairlane, the author, is a comedian should clue you in as to how far you can extend the analogies. You can’t. everything is grist for his mill.

    Peter Griffin is a doofus who gets up to various ridiculous, hair-brained, half-assed, stupid schemes so he could/should/would be the member of any, and by extension every, political party.

    Its like trying to define the politics of Charles Shultz, Matt Groenig or Trey Parker and Matt Stone though the utterances of Charlie Brown, Homer Simpson, or Cartman.

  17. deowll says:

    I will note that when the fiction writers come up with an idea like this the real world bad guys seem to come up with the same idea. A movie about terrorist attacking the twin towers was in the works when it went down.

    Adam and others suggested something was due…Almost makes me believe in precognition.

    • msbpodcast says:

      Its not cognition.

      Its pre-cognition

      Wake me up when its a prediction, not just a possibility.

    • McCullough says:

      And then there was The Lone Gunmen episode about the twin towers attack. 6 months prior.

      But that was a coincidence.
