WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
South Park has built its
14-year run by putting foul language and adult concepts in the mouths of
fourth-graders, and this tendency shows no sign of abating. Case in point: the
April 8th rerun of the March 17th season premiere of
South Park (10:30 p.m. ET), the Worst Cable TV Show of the Week.
The episode charmingly opens
with Tiger Woods being attacked by his wife Elin with a golf club:
Tiger: “Put the golf club
down, you crazy bitch!”
Elin: “You mother(bleeped
f*****)! Why the (bleeped f***) are you getting text message from
hooker on Thanksgiving?”
Elin hits Tiger in the head
with a club, drawing blood.
Tiger: “You (bleeped
Tiger gets into his car.
Elin: “Where the (bleeped
f***) do you think you're going?”
Tiger: “I'm getting the
(bleeped f***) away from you!”
Elin: “Open the door you
It turns out that this scene
is merely the South Park boys playing a video game. The rest of the
episode continues in a similar vein, dragging in the sex incidents of such
luminaries as David Letterman, David Carradine, Charlie Sheen, and Bill Clinton,
using explicit dialogue, as in a scene in which a representative from the
Centers for Disease Control survey these men:
Man: “Alright, sex addicts.
What other destructive behaviors have we participated in that lead to our
David Letterman: “Having sex
Man: “Sex with employees,
definitely a danger there.... what else? Mr. Clinton?”
Bill Clinton: “Putting
cigars in girl's vaginas.”
Man: “Very good, Billy,
cigars in vaginas. Not the best way there.”
Charlie Sheen: “Watching
Internet porn all day every day.”
Man: “Spot on, Charlie
Sheen. Excessive Internet porn.”
The young boys, Kyle and
Butters, sit in the back.
Kyle: “I just found out I'm
a sex addict. I'm so scared I haven't even told my Mom yet.”
Bill Clinton: “Does your mom
have big t***?”
Butters: “I just can't stop
thinking about bush.”
David Duchovny masturbates
under the table, motion is visible.
Man: “Mr. Duchovny, please
stop jerking off.”
The show mocks the use of
the term “sex addiction” used by those guilty of such behavior as an excuse for
their actions. Certainly, the hypocrisy of celebrities and the news media in
dealing with prominent men’s sexual peccadilloes is a ripe subject for satire;
but in its graphic manner, South Park may well be objectionable to many.
Why should all cable subscribers – even those who might wish to never watch
South Park – be forced to pay for a show to which some might object? With
true Cable Choice, viewers who enjoy South Park’s explicit humor could
continue to do so, while others would not be required to fund it.
