Latest South Park Episode
Not sure if you watched it or not, but the latest South Park episode had to have been one of the most psychotic, insane, drug-induced cartoons ever created. And yes, it was funny, but in a sick and twisted way. Throughout the show I was either shaking my head in disbelief, or laughing my ass off... of course feeling guilty afterwards. If you watched it, you'll know what I mean. If you didn't, here's a brief synopsis:
Stan in forest, cute cuddly forest creatures pregnant with their messiah, manger scene, mountain lion killed, creatures are satanic and sacrifice their bunny friend, followed by gratuitous forest creature sex, mountain lion cubs learn about abortion, satan is born, Santa kills cuddly satanic creatures with shotgun, satan possesses Kyle, lion cubs abort satan, Santa kills satan with sledgehammer, Santa brings mountain lion back to life, Kyle dies of AIDS, all of which happened in Cartman's Christmas Story, which he read to class.
I love Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, because they know what they're doing. Whatever their message is, it's usually very funny and isn't intended to be taken seriously... it's just their satirical views on the world. I remember when they made their South Park movie a few years back. During an interview they stated that their intention was to make fun of as many people as they could and get away with it. Of course those people chosen deserved every ounce of what they got. (Winona Rider and the ping pong ball skit) The movie was a masterpiece. I haven't seen Team American, their latest movie, but I hear it's more of the same.
My point is that this latest episode of South Park was so twisted and off the wall, it far surpasses what they got away with in the original South Park movie. I'm still confused as to whether I should feel privileged to have seen it, or I should go and take an hour-long shower because I still feel dirty for watching it. I'm serious... it was that crazy.
In the end I guess I should just hope that their intentions were good. After all, it's just a cartoon.
Now, time to go take a shower...
