Who would have guessed that a show on Fox would be offensive?
Microsoft has canceled a planned partnership with Fox's 'Family Guy.' The Redmond giant had planned to be the sole sponsor of a variety-show version of the animated comedy but then they actually bothered to watch a rehearsal of the prime-time hit. The following is a rough transcript of what happened next.
Microsoft guy: Did you realize this show makes fun of the Holocaust AND incest?
Other Microsoft guy: No. No I did not.
Third Microsoft guy: That's bad, right?
In their next life, Microsoft will return as a wacky crisis-management firm. Their advice to all their clients: Kill yourselves.
