DescriptionThe animated Fox show "Family Guy" is known for pushing the political envelope, but what was up with last night’s catch phrase, "Laura Bush killed a guy"?

Loyal fans love the show for its politically incorrect humor – it thrives on the "They did NOT just say that" variety of comedy.

But Sunday night’s episode left some viewers scratching their heads.

Lead cartoon characters Peter and Lois Griffin repeated the phrase "Laura Bush killed a guy" several times throughout the show with Peter was dressed as Mrs. Bush and Lois as a bleeding man crisscrossed with tire tracks for a costume party.

So where did they come up with that one?

Well, according to public police records, First Lady Laura Bush – then Laura Welch – was involved in a fatal car crash in Texas in 1963.
