Y’all know I love Family Guy. However, as the great philosopher Meat Loaf sang, “I’d do anything for love (but I won’t do that.)”
In this case, “that” is a custom-made, 12-carat, ruby-and-diamond Stewie Griffin necklace, like the one purchased by Justin Bieber and inflicted upon my eyes by TMZ.com.
When I saw this, I thought, “I haven’t seen anything that disturbing since Mariah Carey’s push present!” Lo and behold, this one is by the same jeweler, Jason of Beverly Hills. When it comes to custom work, my policy has always been “If you can describe it and pay for it, I’ll make it.” I think I need to revise that to something like, “If you can describe it and pay for it, but it’s hideous, I know a guy in Beverly Hills who can take good care of you.”
Thanks, sort of, to gorgeous blogger Stef for pointing this out to me.
Another thing that was recently pointed out to me — by Family Guy itself — is that the 1985 “Dancing in the Street” music video by Mick Jagger and David Bowie is the gayest video of all time. (“OF ALL TIME!” an imaginary Kanye West screams in my head.) I don’t disagree.
