James Woods

'Family Guy' Candy Joke

Made NO SENSE to Me

It's almost incomprehensible ... James Woods' infamous "OOH A PIECE OF CANDY" joke on "Family Guy" was nearly a bust ... because he tells TMZ, he didn't think it was all that funny when he did it ... at first.

Woods -- who said he loved playing himself on FG "more than anything you can imagine" -- tells us, the joke just didn't make any sense ... and then it occurred to him ... that was kinda the point.

And the candy joke is just the tip of the iceberg ... Woods says some of the stuff that went on backstage with Seth MacFarlane should've landed him in jail.

Check out the -- OOH A PIECE OF CANDY!

No worries, James Woods. Nothing else on Family Guy is funny either. I think that's the point of the show... to make a select group of TV viewer laugh at things that aren't funny in the least.
The show was actually funny before it got canceled years ago. When they brought it back it was just a steaming turd.

The man actually takes a minute to talk to you and tell you a nice tid bit about his work on Family Guy and rather than just let him go, you ask him about a strip club. Classy.

Huh, he seems nice, polite and pretty normal. Puts him up a notch or two for me. (For those of you counting my notches.)

Any intelligent person (and JW is real smart) wouldn't find that Family Guy crap funny.

Hey Woods, you need a sense of humor to understand the joke. So if you don't get Family Guy, decline the work offers, you f*cking idiot.

FG is awesome, at least the old ones on TBS. I have to admit the few times in the past couple years I've tried watching new episodes they all sucked.

The TMZ cameramen are such s***bags... the last question from this guy proved it... can TMZ actually get some credible people to work for them besides these classless hoodrats?

The "piece of candy trap" is based on a YouTube video of a father "catching" his little girls by putting pieces of candy on the floor leading to a clothes basket trap. The script is nearly verbatim with the fathers dialogue.
