Besides, I love the movie soundtrack!  I have quite a collection of Chef Songs too.  "A prostitute is a woman who loves you no matter who you are."  :D

"Uncle Fucker" is the funniest song IMHO. I have yet to laugh that hard at any of their other songs. Not to say the others aren't good. I just find UF the funniest.
Are we counting Team America World Police here? :^)

I will also say that it was great to finally see Science-worshipping Sea Otters taken down a peg or two. 

I love the episodes where it's clear that Trey and Matt just get an insane idea and throw it into the show.  Like, crab people, or Lemmiwinks, or making Moses the Master Control Program from Tron.

   In this day and age of public apologies despite the first amendment and what not, I appreciate a show that 1) absolutely will not apologize and 2) attacks even more viciously if asked to apologize.

  I love South Park's take on celebrities the most.  :D

I just wish Comedy Central had not caved with the whole "showing Muhammed" thing. That would have been a new milestone in free speech. I wonder if the uncensored version's in the DVD release...

They decided not to show their version of the prophet Muhammed (during a Family Guy spoof) because of the riots in Europe, caused by those cartoons a while back. They caved to pressure that they would incite MORE riots by showing him on South Park, a show that has already shown him along with Jesus and Buddha (I think - the Super Friends episode, been a while since I've seen it).

Funny thing is, it wouldn't be a milestone. Mohammed was and still is shown on South Park in the "Super Best Freinds" episode. :^)

Right, Super Best Friends. I knew I was missing a word.

I mentioned them showing him already, and I don't mean THAT's the milestone. I mean it would've been a milestone because they would've stood up for the right to show what they wanted to show, free speech in a time of outside pressure. Just like they caved about the virgin mary who shat blood, they got pressure from the Catholic church and so the episode got pulled from repeats.

It's funny how, satire is fine until it's YOUR group that's being lampooned. People need to lighten up already.

   Yeah. I've never known of any Buddists or Christians to threaten riots when poked fun at by that show, and yet Comedy Central loses its nerve with Muslims.

  Didn't they limit how often they were repeating the Tom Cruise ep too, or am I not remembering right? I know Isaac Hayes left the show when they used the ep to attack Scientology.

South Park is pretty good but the past few seasons were like meh. It's slowly getting to be like the newer Simpsons episodes.

Right, which is exactly why Isaac Hayes is as big a hypocrite as they come.

NOTE: I originally posted this in the 'Family Guy' thread, but I thought I'd move it here.

Now if you want to see something MUCH funnier... i strongly suggest latching onto south park, for the thinly veiled politcal commentary is hilarious, as is the thinly veiled jabs at religeon, PETA, video games, etc, etc.

"Thinly veiled"? Whenever South Park tries to do political/social commentary, it's painful. It's like trying to watch a five-year-old try to tell a joke...badly.

"Okay, so I penguin and a rabbi walk into a bar and...wait, a priest, a rabbi, a penguin, and...a rabbit, a penguin...no, let me start over again..."

Or how about the punch line?

"...and the old man in the hospital bed says 'I'll have the soup.' Get it? 'Cause, no, yeah, you got..."

Matt Stone and Trey Parker are in direct competition with the idiots that wrote Epic Movie for least funny comedy team with IQ levels below 30. They've always sucked, and always will suck.
