Update II: Here's another clip from the show which Comedy Central did find acceptable involving Jesus and defecation.
Fascinating interview a few years back in "the Onion," for those familiar with that publication, in which Trey Parker talked about poking fun at Jews. It went over about as well as poking fun at Muslims.
Only Christians can be bashed with impunity.
I've heard far more about south park than I've seen. I've stopped and watched a few seconds of it when channel surfing, but that's it. I think it's one of the stupidest things I've ever seen on TV.
Thats ok pale. It basically is the last pure bastion of Free Speech in Television. Slowly though its being eroded away just like everything else on TV. We will look back 50 years from now and realize just how important South Park was in the fight to maintain truly FREE Speech.
I realize people watch it for what is said, but I just can't get past the incredibly ridiculous, 2-D, farcical cartoon caricatures. It's as if the producers are TRYING to see just how daffy they could animate it, and still make people watch just because their script pushed the envelope.
Made the Op-Ed of NY Post:
Dude, watch the South Park movie. It was 10x funnier than any episode I've seen.
The movie kicked ass, but there have been plenty of episodes that were better. My personal Fav was "Die, hippy Die: when South park is invaded by college hippies on spring break that have a hippy jamfest that threatens to destroy the town. The whole scenario plays out like the movie "the core." Cartman builds a drilling machine to get through the hippy crowd to the stage where they can play slayer to disperse the hippies before all of south park is destroyed. Funniest episode ive ever seen of south park.
