Tiger Woods' sex scandal is now getting the "South Park" treatment.

The popular animated series on Comedy Central opens its 14th season Wednesday at 10 p.m. with an episode starring an animated version of Woods.

The setup for the episode is that scientific testing revealed some of the boys on "South Park" have a sex addiction problem.

"It's such an important issue in America right now - the sex addiction outbreak," co-executive producer Matt Stone told the Associated Press. "We're all really concerned about him and hope he gets better."

Woods, of course, is a fresh subject: Since Thanksgiving, his personal and professional life have fallen apart as his multiple affairs have unraveled and become puplic fodder.

The one image released from Wednesday's "South Park" shows Woods at the podium during his televised apology.

"There's a delicacy in talking about [Woods] that we don't have to worry about," Stone, who produces the show with Trey Parker, told the AP.

Comedy, Thompson said, is there to make fun of situations like Woods' turmoil. History books are for the long-term stories, journalism for the breaking, and comedy "can take this stuff where angels fear to tread."

For "South Park," that's a show that dares build a story on scientists who investigate the phenomenon of "rich, successful men who suddenly want to have sex with many, many women," and learns some fourth-grade boys have the same problems.

"With Tiger Woods there's even more leeway," Thompson said. "They can go even further because it's such a bizarre story. It's not one adulterous affair, it's a dozen. And it's not just any celebrity, it's this demigod, Tiger Woods."

I didn't need any psychic powers to see that coming. Tiger's scandal is the kind of thing Stone and Parker love to lambaste.

I don't know if they can ever top that chinese news video that Ginger posted, with the digitally simulated re-enactment of Elin beating Tiger with a golf club, though.
