Every now and then, after The Daily Show & Colbert Report end, I leave the tv on and watch a little South Park.  Usually I end up turning it off after 2 minutes, but now and then an eposide just reels me in and I find myself laughing out loud at their potty mouth,  irreverent, often crude and off the wall humor.   I love that nothing is sacred on this show…..  they are equal opportunity offenders.

Usually it’s the ones that are “musicals” or which skewer religion that get me. Tonight was one such night….    a take off on “High School Musical” 

Enjoy this 2 minute clip:

Here’s the full episode: South Park  Elementary School Musical.

Here are links to a few of my other laugh out loud epidoes for your enjoyment.

Chinpokomon: The first episode I ever saw and couldn’t tear myself away. All the kids get obsessed with the Japanese toy Chinpokoman and go to some camp and start talking Japanese and get brainwashed.

All About The Mormons: Stan attends “family home evening” with the new kid in town and hears the Joseph Smith story, South Park style – musical and all. Remarkably close to the truth!

Probably – Satan tries to choose between Chris, who treats him like gold, and Saddam – with whom he has more chemistry.

The Return of the Fellowship of the Rings to the Two Towers – The kids go on a quest….

Super Best Friends Jesus calls on the “Super Best Friends” (Jesus, Moses, Buddha, Muhammad, Krishna, Joseph Smith, and Lao Tzu and Aqua Man) to defeat David Blaine and thwart his mass suicide plans.

Are you a fan of South Park? Do you simply hate it? Any episodes to recommend???

Just makes me laugh…. I think you’ve covered my favorite ones.

Dum Dum Dum Dum Dum…

The Satan, Chris & Sadam love triangle entertains in a couple of different episodes.

The Christmas one in the forest, well, that one I could have done without, I think.

The “Woodland Critter Christmas” was like a car wreck…. it totally grossed me out but I couldn’t tear myself away.

I liked the one where Will Smith and Snoop Dogg move to South Park (the episode is “Here Comes the Neighborhood)… very funny

I, too, find South Park hilarious, at times, and very disgusting at other times. That one about High School Musical looks hysterical!

we unabashedly love every episode…except for the Oprah one… our favorite was the one with John Travolta on the sudo segue – aaahhhh…

At least one of the writers (I think it’s Trey Parker) has a definite “Mormon influence” in his upbringing and it makes his slant very hilarious to us.

South Park is one on my favorite guilty pleasures. I really liked the Return of the Fellowship episode, particularly at the end when poor Butters just doesn’t want to play anymore. You just have to see it…

Like most of us, I wondered about the Mormonism connection, considering how much they got right in the Mormonism episode. (If we use the Mormon episode as a gauge of their accuracy, the episode on Scientology is really scary.) So I found this online, from an interview with Trey Parker and Matt Stone in 2006 (Reason is the publication the interview appeared in):

“Parker: I’ve been fascinated with the Mormons for a long time. They are the nicest people in the world. If a religion’s going to take over the world, and the one that really believes “just be super nice to everyone” takes over, that’s all right with me. Even if it’s all bullshit, that’s OK.

Reason: How were each of you raised religiously?

Stone: I was raised agnostic. There was no religion in my house.

Parker: I was pretty much the same. My father tried to raise me Buddhist, as in Alan Watts Buddhism, which is Buddhism in a way.

Reason: I have Mormon friends who are convinced you guys were raised Mormon, because of some of the references in the show.

Parker: Well, we grew up in Colorado. Colorado’s right next to Utah—you know, Mormon Central. My first girlfriend was Mormon, and I went to experience family home evening at her house for the first time. “What are you all doing?” “We’re sitting, and we’re singing songs and playing games together.” I was like, “Boy, that’s fucked up. Families are not supposed to be doing that.””

Although not actually from an episode (it’s from the movie) this has always been one of my favorite South Park clips:

Very funny clip. I don’t watch Southpark but it seems I should start.
