I don't understand how Switzerland can be confused for any other country. Do people not learn geography, lol.

Tess-I have never been white rafting before. I'm glad you like it, though!

After reading Not Always Right for many months now, I can totally believe people do that. That site has made me lose faith in humanity. :P

There aren't blonde boys, too? ;P

It's interesting to me how many people don't live in the US!  I was totally blinded to the fact that King's Quest is international before I started posting here.

Cray, you live in Rhode Island?  Ever run into the Griffin family?

Now that I think of it, is King's Quest translated into any other languages?

I believe most (if not all) of the other ones have been translated into other languages, though I couldn't tell you which ones or how to get them.

I guess the forums don't handle nestign like they used to...

Oh goodness! I assume the question was asked in jest, but since I've been asked that in perfect seriousness before, let me just cover all the bases.

No, I have not met the Griffins. They are fictional. :P
No, Quahog is not a real place (it's a type of clam).
No, you do not get all of the jokes in Family Guy and it is much funnier if you live here.

And thank you for getting that quote for me. :P I love talking to the griffin in QfG2, it makes me happy. So... I made it my signature! XD

Yes, it was. ;)

No, I have not met the Griffins. They are fictional. :P
No, Quahog is not a real place (it's a type of clam).

I actually knew both of those facts, thanks for clearing it up, though. ;P

That's like the opposite of Grey's Anatomy!  They so fork up the Seattle area names and screw up the coffee orders. Mocha-latte?  No such thing!

That's because the people who write Grey's Anatomy are not from Seattle, whereas Seth Macfarland *is* from Rhode Island.  :scholar:
