'South Park' Ethers Penn State With Parody Episode
Y'all know South Park stays with the jokes...even when they sting more than actually provoke laughter. So, it shouldn't be a surprise that they tackled the Penn State situation.
In last night's episode, Trey Parker and Matt Stone went in on the school over a child rape scandal. Joe Paterno was targeted, along with the entire football program. At one point in the show, a social worker discovers a torture chamber in a foster home and says to himself, "What have I done? I took you kids from your parents, without even checking in to where you were going. I put innocent children into a dangerous environment. What am I, a recruitment coach for Penn State?"
There were also more low brow jokes like, "Penn State prefers to be losing at half time, because at Penn State ... they like when you're a little behind in the locker room."
