    Venezuela bans Family Guy

    Venezuela bans Family Guy cartoon

    Justice Minister Tareck El Aissami says the show should be banned because it promotes the use of marijuana.

    He took exception to a recent episode in which one character - Brian, a talking dog - started a campaign to legalise the drug.

    Cable stations which refuse to dump the show would be fined, El Aissami said.

    Best way to get more Venezualans to watch Family Guy. Someone sneak in the DVDs, and direct the internet-hooked-up to YouTube.

    Too bad that U.S. won't do the same
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Would you want YOUR dogs smoking marijuana? I think not. And we all know how many dogs watch TV and pick up bad habits from it. Don't we?

    Especially those talking dogs who might be even more influenced by a re-writing of a tune from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

    Cartoons are just way too realistic.
    I like The Happiest Millionaire. What's wrong with that?

    Yeah thats what Venezuela should be worried about the Family Guy, Like thats the worst of there problems. They should leave The Family Guy and Pot alone, Both are wonderful. And together there fantasmic.

    They should just ban that one episode not the whole series.

    Oh no. That cannot be done. It would make too much sense, and THEN where would we all be?
