Family Guy Censored for Bad Taste

I found this YouTube video of a censored "Family Guy" joke. It was intended as joke targeted at the Simpsons. There is a back and forth going on, supposedly all in good fun. In the video, Marge gets raped and in the end the whole Simpson family is murdered. Some people might find this type of thing funny. Personally, I think it's extremely distasteful and insensitive to victims of rape and murder. It is just going a little too far.

Hey, I'm not rich!

I don't know how all these organizations got my phone number, but I usually get anywhere from 3-5 calls per week asking me to donate. With all the calls I get, you'd think that I have amassed some huge fortune like Warren Buffett or Bill Gates. Well, I haven't. By most standards, I'm somewhere between poor and middle-class. Mainly because of student loans (around $40,000), I have a negative net worth. So please, stop asking for money!
