I refuse to buy into the insane notion that a show like Family Guy can have spoilers, so you will receive no spoiler alert here. Brian the dog is dead.

While the event made for a heartwarming moment on the show, it seemed awfully permanent. Essentially, Brian was the only voice of reason on the show, so to take him off would leave us with a bunch of quirky caricatures milling about in zany little skits.

However, a cryptic countdown clock is telling us that Brian, the dead dog, will have an announcement for us in ten days or so. Viewers are being advised to "spread the word," which I'm not going to do because I don't watch Family Guy and neither do my friends. But some of you might, so...spread the word?
