DH thinks "Family Guy" is hysterically funny - Page 2

post #21 of 64

Another Family Guy lover here. :)  It definitely takes a certain kind of humor to get or like the jokes and I can't say that I have a particularly mature sense of humor so maybe that's it, either way... it cracks me up.

My dh and I both find it hilarious.  My 10 year old thinks we're mean because we won't let him watch and "ALL his friends do".  Sadly, I don't think he's exaggerating either.  I snort laugh at least once per show when I watch.

Eh...it's funny but definitely not as well-written as South Park.

We love it here.

In fact, last month when we gave DS a puppy for his birthday he fought hard to name him Brian. To the point of holding him up and saying in a growly dog voice,  "Hey, who's leg do I gotta hump to get a dry martini around here?"

we love family guy!  i can't imagine not finding it funny.   sure, it's highly offensive, but still hysterical!

I used to like it, but it's really just a one-joke show and that got really old after a while.  After the millionth joke that is supposed to be about the misogyny in our culture and on TV, it just becomes a plain old misogynistic joke.  I won't watch it anymore.

Never the less, I still have to put up with DH waking me up saying "Have you heard? The BIRD is the WORD". 

I love family guy, but if I ever have a chance to meet the writers I'll be doing something mean to them for that episode.

Sometimes it's funny, but sometimes it's really offensive, and not in a humorous way, imo.  I don't think mocking stillbirth, for example, is ever funny.  And I really get tired of the "oh it's okay, it's a joke!" crap.  Well just because something is a "joke" doesn't mean it can't be cruel and hurtful, and it certainly doesn't make it okay to say.

I love Family Guy!

 

One night, my friend crashed at my place. I woke up to him nose to nose with me, him singing "Bird, bird, bird! Bird is the word!" I responded coolly "I have a mammogram in the morning." He just lost it. ROTFLMAO.gif

 

 

My friends and I would always get together to watch cartoons, including Family Guy. I got it in my head that I wanted to recreate the 'Chicken Fight' scenes. So, my friend and I bought a chicken suit together. This was right after Halloween 2008. When the costume arrived in the mail we were so excited... until we opened it and discovered the mask was missing. This resulted in several hilarious phone calls back and forth with  the company we bought it from, us demanding the "chicken head" we paid for. Eventually we returned the chicken suit and went with a different company. It took a couple months, but we eventually got another chicken suit delivered. 

 

We were all set to start filming the "chicken fight" on a Sunday in late Feb/early March. I cleared it with a local business to film there. Friday night I had to work, and I had to work again on Saturday morning. My buddies were throwing a party at their house, but I skipped out since I didn't want to go to work tired and/or with a hangover. Unfortunately my friends got rather drunk that night. In their state of inebriation, they thought it was a grand idea to put on the chicken suit and practice play fighting. Being that they were drunk, inside, and one was wearing a fluffy costume, they decided to take the play fighting outside in their front lawn to cool off.

 

There they were, 3 of my buddies, drunk, beating up a giant chicken, at 2am, in a nice little family neighborhood. One of the guys decided to make it even more fun by pulling out ski masks and airsoft guns. That was NEVER part of the plan. Unfortunately for my friends and the party, a concerned citizen driving by called 911. Soon, my friends were surrounded by 10 cops with guns drawn on them. My buddies all got arrested (one still dressed in the chicken suit). They confiscated the chicken suit and we didn't get it back until last Christmas. 

 

So, our Family Guy chicken fight recreation resulted in about a thousand dollars in bail money, even more $$$ in legal fees, and my friends getting probation/ACDs, which required them to stay out of chicken costumes for 6 months. My friends and I had a hard time living that one down. It was all over the news, radio and newspapers. For awhile there we couldn't go anywhere without people "bawking" at us. We still love Family Guy, though. :D

 

Here's a link to the news story.

We don't watch Family Guy, but I imagine I'd feel the same way about it as I do about South Park.  Shocking, laugh out loud funny, disgusting and reprehensible.  The Mormon episode of South Park is brilliant.

I was just talking about the Mormon episode today! I went to a boutique with a friend of mine, and she was telling me about her childhood growing up Mormon. Apparently,  the Mormon episode is her favorite.

Yes, dh grew up Mormon as well.  We'd never watched South Park until his brother told him he HAD to see 'the Mormon' episode.

post #33 of 64

Never been a huge fan of South Park, I've been unable to even watch it again after the creators were down right nasty about Family Guy.

post #34 of 64

Dh and I constantly use the "I blame the schools" line from the one where Brian allegedly impregnates Seabreeze.  

post #35 of 64

From the few episodes I've seen, I find it crass and lowbrow and not funny at all.

post #36 of 64

I think it's hilarious.

post #37 of 64

Never seen it.

I'm the same way. We've only watched it once in a while, but when we did I only found some small bits funny and most of it just stupid and/or offensive and can't imagine how someone can find that funny. At least I don't have a husband waking me up with some stupid line from a show I don't like. He knows not to wake me up under any circumstances if he values his physical integrity.
