View Full Version : I Believe South Park Crossed A Line

Their episode last night was about the Jersey Shore and how these types of numbnuts were taking over the country. It was a very funny episode. South Park didn't want to become West Jersey so they decided to fight but knew they didn't have enough manpower so Randy(Stan's dad) decided to seek help. He couldn't get any help from the other western states(his phone call to Ahnold was hilarious) so he enlisted the help of Al Qaeda. When the Jersey Shore people started advancing, they shot as many as they could but they ran out of ammo. Just when all seemed lost, here comes Al Qaeda flying commercial airliners...and they started crashing them into the invaders. Ugh. I know these guys rip on everyone but this, I believe, crossed a line. Only because, as goofy and asinine as The Jersey Shore is, a lot of New Jersey residents died on 9/11 and I thought it in poor taste to have planes crashing into people to kill them. Am I being overly sensitive or do you think they crossed a line somewhat here?

I would be more surprised if you said there was an episode that didn't cross a line.

Just more obscenity for an increasingly vulgar culture.

They should have waited 10 more months.

Every once in a while, you and I agree on something.

I don't watch South Park regularly. I do always laugh, though, when I see it. Crossing the line is their thing. I've yet to see an episode and not cringe at it.

I stopped watching South Park when they did the Passion of the Christ episode. The anti-semetism was just way to much.

I've seen one episode since then, and that was the World of Warcraft one.

I don't think they were being anti-semitic, but mocking the perceived anti-antisemitism of Mel Gibson and his film. I haven't seen it in a while, so I could be wrong, but that's the way I rememeber it. I don't think the producers of South Park are anti-semitic.

I don't think they are either and what I do like about them is that they rip on everybody and I do mean everybody. The episode Margaritaville made me laugh so hard my stomach hurt. However, I don't think poking fun at 9/11 is cool but that's just me. Hell, that entire episode was ripping on NJ and I loved it, until the suicide crashing thing.

I haven't seen many episodes at all. The Michael Jackson one was hilarious, as was the "Golden ticket" one. I can't say that I even remember any other episodes I saw.

Tom Cruise refusing to come out of the closet made me laugh as well.

The Ben Affleck and J-Lo episode was one of the funniest of all time.

That's the one that made Issac Hayes quit. Which prompted the "Chef and his fruity little club" episode. I found that whole thing funny considering that SP leaves no stone unturned when ripping on religion including the Super Best Friends episode(that actually had a depiction of Muhammad) which Hayes evidently didn't have a problem with(nor did Hayes have a problem calling the kids "little crackers") but cried when they ripped Scientology.

I actually thought it was one of their best episodes in a while. Of course, there is nothing as grating as a thick Jersey accent to my ears. You have to be thich skinned to take their humor, because they will hit you in the gut sooner or later.

To me, a joke is a joke, and nothing is above making a joke about. I'm kinda fucked up like that.


BTW, "Snookie" was hilarious.

I'm pretty sure at least one of the two South Park creators is Jewish by birth.

Fixed. Jew is a noun. Jewish is an adjective.

Believe me when I tell you, this is not how we talk in NJ. The only people I know who live here and talk like this are transplanted New Yorkers. And I don't know what part of the Jersey Shore these people film at but that certainly is not the Jersey shore I know(yes, I know it is filmed in Seaside Hights. I've been to Seaside and the only people like that crew are New York Bennies...Ape feel free to define benny to the good folks).

And while I appreciate their humor, there are just a few things you do not rip on and 9/11 is one of those things.

So, if I were to ask, how many Jersey shore members it takes to change a lightbulb, the answer would not be, "None a' you f***in' business"? :D

Exactly. Adjective and noun. As I said to a Catholic friend one, "both your clergy and mine are not supposed to indulge in pork. It's just that mine doesn't allow pork as a noun, and yours doesn't allow them pork as a verb." :D

I think Parker and Stone are angry at Scientology for some good reasons. Isaac Hayes was a nice guy, and he probably would still be alive if it wasn't for his adherence to that cult and their opposition to modern medicine. I'm not sure he had a problem with that episode until the cult told him to have a problem with it.

I've noticed that the celebrities who are members of Scientology are nice people, but not the brightest. John Travolta, Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley-these are hardly candidates for Mensa. Their collective Weschler score is probably around 90.


Although I was not offended by last night's episode, I was surprised that it aired, mainly because of the al Queda thing.

The snookie monster raping Eric Cartman is one of the funniest visuals I've seen in a while.

I'm surprised that they didn't censor the part where they shoot Bin Laden. Comedy Central has a hard on for Muslims.

If you call craven dhimmitude a "hard on." Remember that it was Comedy Central that censored SP's Mohammed episode.
