Can Peter's ignorance of history help him against Lincoln?Peter Griffin of Family Guy fame once teamed up with his wife to beat the Simpsons, and thus has a shot at the title. Of course, to get there, he has to whup Abe Lincoln, who is 5-0 on the fights page (and, based on previous precedent, two wins away from being retired as an undefeated champion).

Peter and Lois Griffin versus Homer and Marge Simpson

How did these two great shows both fall apart so badly?Here we have a pair of pairs, each belonging to cartoon shows that were once funny and now are past their prime. Peter and Lois form the parental unit of the Griffin family, the focal point of Family Guy.

I guess that will show him. Nobody messes with Adam We...Although he has accumulated quite a fan base through his work on such television series as Batman and Family Guy, the great and powerful Adam West remains an enigma. Few people take the time really necessary to learn about such an important figure in American history. This piece serves as an unauthorized biography of this great American hero. Don’t bother trying to check my facts – the people who control the flow of information are hideous pinko commies who would do everything in their power to besmirch Mr. West’s good name and hide his many accomplishments.
