"I know it's satire but, personally, that [joke] bothered me, too," Warburton said on a conference call to promote his other prime-time show, the CBS sitcom "Rules of Engagement," which returns for a fourth season on March 1. "I know that you have to be an 'equal-opportunity offender,' but there are some things that I just don't think are funny."
