DC Trawler

Seth MacFarlane is alive because he missed his flight on 9/11

True fact. He would’ve been on American Flight 11 except he was all partied out. And thank goodness he was too hung over that morning to get to the airport on time, or we’d have missed out on the past decade of such ribtickling comedy as last night’s episode of Family Guy. Here’s the super-hilarious part, as recounted by Mediaite:

On a search to find the source of all dirty jokes (which eventually leads them to Virginia) Peter, Quagmire, and Joe pass through Washington, DC where they see the Washington Monument, the Obama Monument (it’s black) and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. This is the part that is going to ruffle some feathers. Standing in front of the Memorial are two Vietnam Vets and a Vietnamese man who calls the Memorial a “scoreboard” and says “aw, what happened to your friends? Hey I know that guy, I killed him, he cried like a bitch. Vietnam! Undefeated!”


It’s about time somebody took those Vietnam vets to task. They’ve gotten a free ride for way too long. Somebody had to take them down a peg, and MacFarlane, who is really funny and not at all a terrible human being, is just the guy to do it.

Hey, here’s another good one: It’s too bad Seth MacFarlane didn’t die horribly in the worst terrorist attack in U.S. history! LOL! See what I did there? Come on, laugh!
