Carol Burnett Hates Cartoons Bad!

According to USA Today Carol Burnett is suing Fox for $2 million (insert Dr. Evil laugh here____) due to copyright infringement on an episode of the Family Guy. In the episode in question, they used a likeness of Carol Burnett's "Charwoman" character as a porn shop cleaning woman. I thought it was brilliant, but I guess Carol is pissed. A statement that was issued from Fox summed it up best when it said:

"Family Guy, like The Carol Burnett Show, is famous for its pop culture parodies and satirical jabs at celebrities. We are surprised that Ms. Burnett, who has made a career of spoofing others on television, would go so far as to sue Family Guy for a simple bit of comedy."

Seriously? Does Carol smell burnt toast? Is she having a stroke? Lighten up. I think the creators of Gone With the Wind should sue Carol for her spoof on that movie. Yeah, that's right I said it. Spoof. I also think Mr. Ed should sue Carol for stealing his horse teeth. Yeah, horse teeth. I'm fired up.
