This week, SOUTH PARK tackles a very serious subject that may change the planet as we know it.
I wonder if Matt Stone and Trey Parker are prepared to accept the blood that is on their hands now that they have created several deadly memes. Spoiler. The episode is about memes.
AND WHAT AN EPISODE IT IS!
In what mandkind will some day call the definitive episode of television about the early 2000s, our little band of poorly animated kiddies tackle: Faith Hilling; the incredibly deadly Tebowing; Taylor Swifting; Oh Long Johnsoning; Bradying; cats taking over the world; and the republican debates.
TV Anchor: First there was planking: People taking pictures of themselves in a plank position and putting the photos on the Internet. Planking was soon replaced by owling. And after the Super Bowl, by Bradying. But the newest meme involves pulling the shirt out to look like boobs. It’s called ‘Faith Hilling’ and all around the world people are doing it. Kids, adults, even some notable celebrities are getting into the act. But as Faith Hilling becomes more and more popular, the question on everyone's mind: who will be the first to die doing it?
Host: These youths paid with their lives for Tebowing. When they posed for pictures, they should have remembered there are only three approved memes: peace sign; bunny ears; fake wiener.
Kid #2: Oh God. Faith Hilling is so February 2012.
Stan: Saying something is so 2000 and anything is so 2009, you stupid asswipe!
Professor: If cats are putting slices of bread on their heads and taking pictures, they’re proving to be almost as intelligent as we are.
If I had to rate this episode, and I do, I'd give it:
96 out of 100
Totally brilliant. Why are you reading this anyway? Go watch the episode!
