So, Gary and I watched South Park this past Wednesday, waiting for them to bring the funny. No funny. Also no Cartman, no Kenny, no Kyle, no Stan, no Butters, no Timmy ("TimmmMAAHHH!"), and again, no funny. Oprah's vagina holding a gun. But no funny was brought.
I turned to Gary and said "Is this the worst South Park ever?"
He agreed. "Is Ming-ey some term for a woman's privates that I just don't know?"
"If it is, it's new to me." I said. "God, wouldn't it be awful if this was the one and only episode of South Park someone had ever seen?"
And of COURSE, Wednesday's episode marks the one and only time my mother has watched a full episode of South Park. She said she felt she could get through this particular episode because it did not have those squeaky-voiced kids. She finds Stan, Kyle, and Cartman's voices grating. (I assume Kenny's voice does not grate.) She was waiting for the David Spade show (also, no funny) and figured she would JUST THIS WEEK give South Park a chance. ("You know, you kids like it")
I can only imagine the South Park creators were so enraged that they were not allowed to show Mohammad last week that they got their revenge by doing their worst possible job ever. And now my mom thinks I watch truly dreadful and UNFUNNY cartoons.
