I get such a treat out of South Park sometimes. Very tasteless must of the time, but dang funny. This week's new episode left me with my jaw open. They could not have possibly written, drawn, and produced this any faster. I thought at first they must have had two different episodes completed based upon who won the election, but when they mentioned the passing of Obama's Grandmother, I was stunned! This was aired first on Wednesday, then repeated on Thursday. Here is the episode review from E!
"No wonder John McCain's concession speech Tuesday night was so gracious.
It turns out he's been in cahoots with Barack Obama for the last 10 years, and the pair have been devising a way to get either one of them into the White House as part of their plan to steal the precious Hope diamond from the Smithsonian.
Well, at least according to the folks over at South Park, who, on last night's episode, showed Obama and McCain attending a postelection meeting with other members of the "greatest thief club in the world" to explain it all.
Hey, if in some weird way it helps the economy, we say, screw it—take all the diamonds you want. "
There is a 2:32 clip here http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/b67548_south_park_obama-mccain_master_plan.html At the end there is a link to South Park Studios where you can watch the whole episode. The episode does a take-off on Ocean's Eleven with Obama and McCain as the leaders of the heist.
If you are real adventurous, check out the Britany Spears episode from last year. It was not as much funny as it was sad and telling on the state of our obsession with celebrities. I have found that regardless of how gross and tastless many of the jokes are on South Park, there is nearly always a very truthful lesson taught about society.
