They arrive with regularity, probably at the rate of one a week, maybe three or four if I've written something that gets picked up by Americans browsing Google News. These emails have come to be a bit of a bore for me, but I know what a laugh Family Guy fans have when they see the byline "Peter Griffin" on top of a "serious" story. They obviously just can't help themselves and it gives me comfort to know they're delighting in their discovery (yeah right). Here's a selection from the past couple of months...

From Mark:

"Hey iv allways loved peter griffin i love your show family guy it's great And i'm pleased that you like the ps3 so much im gonna save up and get one cheers peter"

From Rawkus:

Youre a fat bastard!!! (I'm not 100 per cent sure if this is a Family Guy reference, I think it is...)
From John

Hey Peter,

Must be awesome to be Peter Griffin!

From May.N

Dear Peter,
Did you know there's a TV show called The Family Guy and the show's star is called Peter Griffin? Thought it would crack you up to know.
