    Fox Can't Take a Joke, Removes Simpsons Jab at the Network

    Fox News employees: they lie, they ignore journalistic ethics ... and they cannot take a joke.

    Last week, the long-running cartoon sitcom The Simpsons took a jab at its parent network (as it has been known to do), displaying a fictional Fox helicopter with the slogan "Fox News: Not racist, but #1 with racists."

    Fox News's resident windbag Bill O'Reilly didn't think much of the stunt, calling Simpsons producers “pinheads” for continually “biting the hand that feeds them."

    Now it appears the network may have removed the helicopter slogan in the online version of the episode -- a move that it seems has only served to draw more attention to the original joke.

    And proving that they will have the last laugh, last night The Simpsons got in yet another yuk at the expense of Fox:

    Fox News: Unsuitable for viewers under 75.
