"Unusually Large Baby Born" is one of those freeze frame
jokes that buzzes by animated sitcom
s from time to time, particularly shows in which one of the main characters is rather large in size. On The Simpsons
the headline "Unusually Large Baby Born" is seen when Homer Simpson
was looking at a newspaper archive and came across the front page of the Springfield Shopper
newspaper from the day he was born. Sure enough, he's the unusually large baby in the photo underneath the headline. On Family Guy
we see that the Griffin family has a photograph of a very bedraggled Lois Griffin
after giving birth to her very large son, Chris Griffin
. A similar caption graces the photo. In fact, a number of the production staff at Family Guy
claim to have xerox
ed copies of this animated photo on their own refrigerators.
