This isn’t new, but in light of recent events regarding Bruce Jenner making her public transition to Caitlyn Jenner, it’s certainly timely.

In a 2009 episode of Family Guy titled “We Love You, Conrad,” in which Brian briefly dated Lauren Conrad, Stewie made this throwaway joke at the expense of Jenner claiming that he was a “beautiful, elegant Dutch woman” that had apparently birthed Brody Jenner from his/her vagina.

I know the rumors of the woman formerly known as Bruce Jenner’s personal life go back a few years, so I’m not sure if Family Guy was attempting to make an insensitive joke at the time, or if it was just totally random. I’ll just chalk it up to the infinite monkey theorem, which, in all honesty, is not the worst metaphor for the Family Guy writing staff.

Married with Children made a similar joke in a 1996 episode, “Torch Song Duet.” However, being that the plot of the episode revolved around carrying the Olympic torch, and the joke’s expense was made at Marcy, I think we really can safety chalk this one up to a random coincidence.

Speaking of TV characters living dangerously, it’s time to catch up with Game of Thrones Cersei Lannister…
