‘Family Guy’ Creator: ‘It’s Hard To Beat A Good Fart Joke’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When it comes to gut-busting humor, it’s hard to beat a good fart joke.

That’s the word from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, who considers flatulence a humor perennial; a lesson he learned from his dad, who he says “is one of the most intellectual, socially conscious people” he’s ever known.

Still, that didn’t stop the elder MacFarlane from making little Seth listen to an audiotape of a man “taking the biggest, longest s you ever heard. And he was just laughing his a off.”

Family Guy returns with new episodes on Fox starting May 1 and even though the show has 17 writers on staff, MacFarlane promises his main character, Peter Griffin, will let at least one fart fly during the season.

As he puts it, “There’s that base of the brain thing where you hear a fart and you can’t help but laugh.”
