South Park Is The Cassandra Of Our Time
The Wisdom Of South Park
Season 19 of South Park is shaking things up. That’s no surprise since South Park is often about social issues. The episode where Cartman cooked Scott Tennerman’s parents was about anti-vaxxers, for instance.
I made that screen grab from last night’s episode, featuring Jimmy and former anchormen vs advertising. It sounds dumb and it is, but it also isn’t, because of the wisdom above.
She d-d-doesn’t know she’s an ad, does she?
Jimmy starts rationalizing the existence of ads in human form, because he likes one of them. She’s cute. So the anchormen try to bring him back to his sense by saying, “You’re thinking with your dick. Stop thinking with your dick.” Yes. If we can all stop thinking with our dick, or lady dick as it were, then we could all be free of the constant barrage of neurolinguistic programming to which we’re subjected. Here endeth the lesson. Penus.
Kate is Mark’s ex so that was awkward
Have you watched You’re The Worst? It’s hilarious. Do it.
Bruce Campbell. He’s awesome
Hail to the chief, baby
Mark: I don’t give a fuck, dipping your fries in your [milk]shake is awful, and inhuman. Hang your head(s) in shame. Do something awesome like heroin instead [Don’t do heroin kids. It’s bad because it’s so awesome].
Dale: Mark enjoys
Mark: I do. That last one was me. I was gonna tweet it but [the] last time I was myself on Twitter, people contacted [my ex] and asked if I was ok.
Dale: You’re just a special fellow, friend.
Mark: I know. I am just shy of being a talent, so I’m a …. special fellow.
Dale: No, friend. You are not a talent. You are a treasure. [Awww, Dale. You’re so nice]
Mark: Awwww, that’s so nice, it makes me want heroin. 🙂 [Mark deals with praise by deflecting]
Dale: Yes. I rematch the Craig/Tweek [Yaoi] South Park episode. It makes me all fuzzy. Soon I’ll return to You’re the Worst [The Mark was watching during this conversation] and become a scumbag again.
Mark: Lovely. I just scratched my back with a fork. I will watch another episode. [Always a gentleman]
Dale: I use my Halloween Wolverine claws for my back [Do not forget that humans are domesticated apes]. Tonight. Fargo. Bruce Campbell as President Reagan.
Mark: No. Way.
Dale: Yes, friend. Soon I will watch.
