There is nothing about that story which isn't horrifying.

The most horrifying part is that people still care about South Park.

I have to agree with both of these statements.

It's like the Simpsons, in that it is more popular than ever, but nearly a thousand times worse in quality than it was in its prime.

Wow, is the Simpsons really popular still?

I understand what you mean, though. I did find South Park funny back in the day. Way back in the day. You know, first season back in the day.

Actually upon further research, Simpsons ratings are 7.7 million now, first season was 14ish. So, yeah it's still popular.

So, the Simpsons has been getting better in the last season. The past 10 episodes or so have been pretty good. I especially liked the parkour sequence.

Is that a word?

Edit: Oh, that.

I don't care if it's getting better, I'm not coming back after the garbage they've spewed.

That's fair.

Also, a video from a "parkour academy" in London, encouraging women to come to their woman's classes.



You just need to see the beginning and end to get the gist. I was amused.

I've seen a full episode, but it was dubbed in Russian.
