What are the things Family Guy has made fun of?

User Avatar
There are FAR too many things to list here. It quite possibly would take less time for you to watch all the seasons of episodes than it would be for one person (or multiple people) to write all the things that Family Guy has made fun of all these years. However, some of the top things/people Family Guy has referenced would perhaps be Michael J Fox Back to the Future Wizard of Oz 9/11 George Bush

Asked in Family Guy, Apostrophes and Ellipses

Is Lois' the singular possessive of Lois?

User Avatar
There are two accepted forms for possessive singular nouns ending in s: Add an apostrophe (') after the existing s at the end of the word: Lois' Add an apostrophe s ('s) after the existing s at the end of the word: Lois's Examples: I met Lois' mother at the meeting. I met Lois's mother at the meeting. Note: The -s's is the most commonly used form, but if you are a student, use the form that is preferred by your teacher.

Asked in Family Guy, Greek and Roman Mythologies, Egyptian Mythology

Where do Gryphons originate?

User Avatar
They are most commenly found in Greek Mythology but can also be found in Egyptian myth. The griffin, griffon, or gryphon (Greek: γρύφων, grýphōn, or γρύπων, grýpōn, early form γρύψ, grýps; Latin: gryphus) is a legendary creature with the body of a lion and the head and wings of an eagle. As the lion was traditionally considered the king of the beasts and the eagle was the king of the birds, the griffin was thought to be an especially powerful and majestic creature. The griffin was also thought of as king of the creatures. Griffins are known for guarding treasure and priceless possessions. Adrienne Mayor, a classical folklorist, proposes that the griffin was an ancient misconception derived from the fossilized remains of the Protoceratops found in gold mines in the Altai mountains of Scythia, in present day southeastern Kazakhstan. In antiquity it was a symbol of divine power and a guardian of the divine. Some have suggested that the word griffin is cognate with Cherub. While Griffins are most common in Ancient Greece, there is evidence of Griffins in Ancient Egyptian art as far back as 3,300 BC. Most statues have bird-like talons, although in some older illustrations griffins have a lion's forelimbs; they generally have a lion's hindquarters. Its eagle's head is conventionally given prominent ears; these are sometimes described as the lion's ears, but are often elongated (more like a horse's), and are sometimes feathered. The earliest depiction of griffins are the 15th century BC frescoes in the Throne Room of the Bronze Age Palace of Knossos, as restored by SirArthur Evans. It continued being a favored decorative theme in Archaic and Classical Greek art. In Central Asia the griffin appears about a thousand years after Bronze Age Crete, in the 5th-4th centuries BC, probably originating from the Achaemenid Persian Empire. The Achaemenids considered the griffin "a protector from evil, witchcraft and secret slander". The modern generalist calls it the lion-griffin, as for example, Robin Lane Fox, in Alexander the Great, 1973:31 and notes p. 506, who remarks a lion-griffin attacking a stag in a pebble mosaic Dartmouth College expedition at Pella, perhaps as an emblem of the kingdom of Macedon or a personal one of Alexander's successor Antipater. The Pisa Griffin is a large bronze sculpture which has been in Pisa in Italy since the Middle Ages, though it is of Islamic origin. It is the largest bronze medieval Islamic sculpture known, at over three feet tall (42.5 inches, or 1.08 m.), and was probably created in the 11th century in Al-Andaluz(Islamic Spain). From about 1100 it was placed on a column on the roof of Pisa Cathedral until replaced by a replica in 1832; the original is now in the Museo dell' Opera del Duomo (Cathedral Museum), Pisa. Infrequently, a griffin is portrayed without wings, or a wingless eagle-headed lion is identified as a griffin; in 15th-century and later heraldry such a beast may be called an alce or a keythong. In heraldry, a griffin always has forelegs like an eagle's; the beast with forelimbs like a lion's forelegs was distinguished by perhaps only one English herald of later heraldry as the opinicus.

How do you pronounce quahog?

User Avatar
It is pronounced Co-Hog on the show however, the real world pronunciation of "Quahog" is "Kwa hog". All of the preceding generations of my family pronounced it that way because they wrote "QUA" (KWA) + "HOG" (HOG) phonetically the way they heard the indigenous peoples pronounce it.

Why is Family Guy a season ahead in the UK?

User Avatar
They aren't. The U.K.'s Seasons are just advertised differently. They are the same episodes as aired in the U.S. In fact, the U.K. is actually behind in the episode airings. The episodes have already aired in the U.S. by the time they air overseas. If by chance you're referring to the DVD sets, They aren't as well. They are simply named a season ahead but they are the same episodes that air in the states.
