"The treatment didn't give me powers, but it did spread cancer to my anus," Peter Griffin explains of his transformation into Red Stool.
"Family Guy" hit a major milestone on Sunday by airing its 300th episode, and to celebrate they brought on the world's most famous superhero: Red Stool?
In a parody of Marvel Comics' Deadpool (but let's be honest, he belongs to Ryan Reynolds now, doesn't he?), Peter Griffin underwent a secret treatment to give him super powers, much like the Weapon X program turned Wade Wells into Deadpool.
Unfortunately, things didn't go quite as smoothly as Peter might have liked, and he emerged as Red Stool, instead. "The treatment didn't give me powers, but it did spread cancer to my anus," Peter explained directly to the camera before abruptly having to fight a horde of ninjas ... in slow motion ... as you do.
In a further nod to the film, "Family Guy" offered a new twist on Juice Newton's "Angel of the Morning" for the scene, now rewritten as "Anus of the Morning" and featuring great lines like, "This violence juxtaposed to music, anus" and "decapitation in slow motion, anus."
The segment was one of the show's infamous cut-scenes, so there's really no further context needed as it had nothing to do with anything. That means you have more time to just go back and watch it over and over again until that song is stuck in your head for the rest of the day.
