Family Guy Parodies Grape Lady

A couple months ago I posted this video(GO HERE) and just noticed that Family Guy parodied the clip. This is great for two reasons: it once again proves why Family Guy is the funniest show ever and because I get watch the grape lady faceplant then moan in agony over and over again. Here's some info on the video:

Reporter Melissa Sander was doing a live segment for Fox 5 Atlanta on a grape-smashing competition at the Chateau Elan Winery & Resort in Georgia one day in the late 90's. As she smashed grapes with her interviewee, she accidentally fell off the platform and got the wind knocked out of her (though a message on Chateau Elan's website in 2004 reassured TV viewers that Sanders was fine). Her pained screams and groans were uploaded to the Internet in 2005. There, her detractors take additional joy in lambasting her for her attempt at cheating in the moments before her fall. According to her bio at WTEN Albany, where she worked following the grape incident, Sander's "interests include cooking, hiking, antiquing, singing, and playing with her adorable dog (adopted from the Humane Society)."
