Microsoft Apparently Not Familiar With Family Guy

(From the Associated Press)

Fans of Family Guy are chortling about Microsoft's belated discovery that a Family Guy special might not jibe with the software giant's corporate image.

On Monday, Microsoft said it's pulling out as sponsor of a Family Guy variety show, just two weeks after announcing its sole sponsorship of the special, Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show, scheduled to air Nov. 8.

The Fox special apparently follows in the racy tradition of the animated Family Guy series — just as any fan would expect.

The special includes "typical Family Guy-style jokes, including riffs on deaf people, the Holocaust, feminine hygiene and incest," said Variety, which first reported Microsoft's exit.

The special stars Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, who voices many of the characters, and Alex Borstein, who furnishes the voice of Peter Griffin's wife, Lois.
