Even if you're not an avid watcher of Family Guy, you probably heard that Brian's dead. To that I say: FINALLY.

When he wasn't insulting our intellegence by slamming religion or going off on some political-laced rant that made me wanna fill my shoes with barf, he was trying his hardest to be the smartest guy(dog) in the room.  I could go on, but Quagmire summerizes it far better than I.


Nailed it.

Of course, you could make the argument that, "Brian was Stewie's best friend and completed the family, blah blah blah."  But keep in mind, we've already got Brian's replacement-Vinny!  And remember when "Itchy and Scratchy" added a charctor on the Simpsons?

OK, bad example. 

Now, if you wanna save Brian, you're among the 57,000+ petition signers and the 644k+ Facebook page followers, at the time of this post, who want the same.  But since the voice for the new dog, Vinny, has already been cut for at least six episodes, it's time to embrace some change that might actually involve LESS DUETS WITH STEWIE!

And if that doesn't convince you, take some stock that IT'S A CARTOON.

Though, I'd be completely outraged if they killed off greased-up deaf guy...
