4. Jesus Camp. Peter is then sent to "straight camp," where he is told Jesus Christ hates homosexuals most of all. A counselor tells the campers to grab a baseball bat and beat up a boy to change his "choice of lifestyle." As the campers head off camera, the counselor yells at them to stop using the bats "that way." He asks them to use their fists, and then yells, "Not like that!"
This Jesus-bashing is offensive, but it isn't so surprising -- it's a "Family Guy" staple. Now add the allusions to anal penetration, and we're on another trip down Grossout Lane.
5. The Gay 11-Way Orgy. Peter's new gay partner announces to Peter that he organized his fantasy come true: a gay "11-way" orgy. Nine men walk into the room stripped down to white underwear. But after some moaning and giggling, the gay gene "wears off," and Peter runs out of the room naked.
It's quite clear that Fox and its public-relations team must just like the sound of a headline the next day with the words "gay 11-way orgy" in it.
6. Murderous Horse Rampage. Peter's horse is used for more sick laughs when it runs off the racetrack and tramples the audience. The announcer protests he cannot describe the death scene that was so "unfathomably ugly and heart-rending," but then he describes how the horse trampled a class of deaf second-graders. That was allegedly funny -- the announcer said you couldn't hear them scream as they died, but they were "signing frantically" in "dread and terror."
Remember: There really does exist a person working at Fox who is in charge of "standards" and "practices."
Fox isn't the only corporation to blame for this rotting barge of garbage. Thank the sponsors who made it possible: not just the movie studios of Fox, Universal and Miramax, but Toyota, Volkswagen, Burger King, Taco Bell, Boost Mobile, Verizon, Chase Bank, Stride Gum and Diet Mountain Dew.
I wonder how many of the corporate executives running these companies allow this program to be aired in their own living rooms.
