Help Broken Lizard Turn 'Super Troopers 2' Into a Reality

More specifically, the testicles will take on the shape of that of Family Guy's Peter Griffin, and they will tour around the world next year to celebrate MCAC's 10th anniversary and also serve as an obvious reminder to the men down below to "act on the early warning signs of male cancers."
