Random 'Family Guy' reference No. 2: Last night's episode gives EW an excuse to mention Massive Head Wound Harry

Posted on

Image Credit: NBC; FoxWe’re really into Family Guy this week here on PopWatch. Exhibit A: My colleague Annie Barrett already touched on the primary storyline of last night’s Family Guy, Brian’s drama-turned-sitcom Class Holes. (Chimps are sorely lacking on TV today, aren’t they?) But I was more focused on the episode’s secondary storyline. Why? Because the massive head wound on Stewie’s football-shaped head reminded me of one of my favorite Saturday Night Live sketches of all time: Massive Head Would Harry. (See clip embedded after the jump.) Just look at the similarities: Head Wounds. Check. Animal pulling at said head wounds? Check. (And, ew.)

So whose head wound was more disgusting? As much as I enjoyed watching Stewie get all Weekend at Bernie’s-ed last night, I have to give the edge to Dana Carvey’s Harry. Because nothing lightens up a party quite like a brain matter. What do you think, PopWatchers?
