The Detroit Lions have been the butt many jokes over the course of the last 50 years or so — rightfully in most cases.
The FOX show Family Guy has not been known to take it easy on anyone, as the writers often fill the 30-minute show with jokes about topical pop culture and political references.
The Lions are their latest victim. Family dog, Brian Griffin, falls into a pit with two actual lions and out of fear asks, “It’s Thanksgiving, shouldn’t you be in Detroit losing a football game right now?”
This is very tame as far as Family Guy jokes can go and if the Lions do in fact lose their Thanksgiving Day game to the Bears, they will be very deserving of criticism and jokes like this one.
