Oh Hey, the University of Arizona Was Knocked by Family Guy

Posted By on Thu, May 23, 2013 at 12:35 PM

In what I can only assume is some sort of retaliatory shot at our fair city for celebrating the cancellation of The Cleveland Show, the folks at Family Guy dropped another insult on Tucson, this time mocking the young minds being molded at the University of Arizona:

Ooooh, man. That...that one stung. I'm not certain we'll be able to make it back, as a community, from a burn of that magnitude. SOMEONE, BUY ALL OF THE ALOE.

For those keeping score, that was the second insult lobbed in our direction in the past year by Fox's Animation Domination Sunday Broadcast Funnytime Cartoonshow Block, as another Seth MacFarlane animated comedy, American Dad, got us—hard—by calling the Old Pueblo "unnecessary," which, like, still hurts.

Near as I can tell, no one associated with the most recent episode of Family Guy is affiliated with Tucson or UA in any way — which means that this one was personal.
