Peter Griffin is a poor role model...

Has anyone noticed that cartoons are getting progressively more vulgar? I kind of miss Bugs Bunny.

I seem to be back in Cambridge... I don't know how much time I'm going to have to do anything, but we'll see. It looks like solid doctor appointments and "family time." Hoo-ray! I'm actually kind of excited about the food bit though, I came home to a ham dinner. WTF? Clearly the weather craziness has made my parents think that it's Easter already. Whatever, it was tasty.

So this town? Still sucks liek woah. I haven't quite grown the stones to tell my mom that I'm actually leaving Wednesday afternoon. That seems a little cold, but I wanna see lightofmine before she returns to exotic/abysmally dull Nebraska. Take your pick of modifier.

Visiting Alex was a good time. Except for the part where made me watch Tombstone, and I almost got an aneurysm. I love me some film, but I hate me just about all westerns. I'm sorry, but I don't have the strength. We did finish up the first season of Lost, though. I've almost got him all caught up, and I've definitely got him addicted. I win at life.

Right so... I should write some drabble, huh?

The thing about this, in my opinion, is that for some reason lately the height of good humour is just to be as tasteless or vulgar as possible. You don't have to be funny, just draw a cartoon with kids cartoon looking characters fucking, wanking, taking drugs and swearing and you'll have a hit show. Just have a cartoon say fuck andf the entire nation will be shocked, tune in and laugh their asses off.

This really shits me because as much as IO think Family Guy is funny, there's SO MUCH shit which just seems to rely on being shocking or distasteful instead of clever. This is why I don't find Little Britain funny. I'm not offended by any of it, it doesn't bother me, but it just doesn't tickle my funny bone

By the way when I said "so much shit" I mean in TV in general not necessarily Family Guy but I probably wouldn't put much effort into an argument with anyone who felt differently
