Quote of the Day

"We're not on anybody's fucking side."

-- South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone

Kick-ass chick Alex Leo's interview with the two of them in HuffPo is great stuff.

Can we drop "South Park Republican" from the lexicon then? As the biggest South Park Fan you'll ever meet (I'll go up against anyone on South Park trivia) I fucking hate it when conservatives claim South Park as their own.

conservative checking in, and i'll go toe-to-toe with you on SP trivia anyday.

Chez said...

Yeah, but Kevin's right -- that fucking ridiculous South Park Conservative label is a riot. It's always entertaining when the right tries to prove that it's made up of the cool kids who have a real sense of humor. Mostly because people who call themselves conservative are generally the unfunniest people you'll find anywhere.

Everyone just go watching CANNIBAL!: The Musical. Have a Schpedoinkal day. They really don't give a fuck about which "side" they're on because it doesn't matter. When it comes down to it what they do is better/bigger than that. Everyone will claim them as "their own" seeking for something to validate a set of values/viewpoint. It's fucking satire, get over it.

I always thought that the best satire has NO political affiliations. Encyclopedia Brittanica defines satire as this: In satire, human or individual vices, follies, abuses, or shortcomings are held up to censure by means of ridicule, derision, burlesque, irony, or other methods, ideally with the intent to bring about improvement.

Vices, follies, abuses and shortcomings are not dependent on a political party or set of values.
The fact that they don't have a fucking side is exactly what makes South Park so good.
