Don't get mad, but the "You're Getting Old" 2-parter DIDN'T HAPPEN. They might exist, but the events DIDN'T HAPPEN, as they go against EVERYTHING that the show stood for.

Nobody cares if you didn't like the episode. Go complain on DMOS or Wallbanger. These discussion pages are for discussing the tropes on the page, not whining about how an episode "DIDN'T HAPPEN".

Besides that, going against everything the show stood for was exactly the point of that two parter. It might as well be called Matt and Trey Are Getting Old.

While reading the dark wiki, i manage to find something subtle. In the "Cartmanland" episode, when Kyle loses his faith, his parents read him the story of Job to help renew his faith, but they forget that story ends on a high note with Job being rewarded twice over for his faith. In the end, Kyle is rewarded with Cartman misery.

Do you agree to add this to the Fridge section?

"The subjects they mock usually target Liberals, Fundamentalists and actively hostile atheists, Political Correctness Gone Mad, Industrialists and Hippies, etc. Both sides of the debate are often mocked."

I've seen a ton of SP episodes and can't remember even remember one where Atheists were ridiculed on it. And even if there is one, then maybe it's not the best example as the amount of times it's been ridiculed is so low.

They made fun of atheists who openly mock theists in Go God Go, near the end of season 10.

I consider Stan and Kyle as Audience Surrogates. Does anyone else agree?

Gah, ignore this. Said something but I can't delete the post.

Why was Complete Monster removed? I thought it was called "Your Mileage May Vary" After all, boyjXykon from Order Of The Stick and The Joker are considered a Complete Monster in their universe despite being Laughably Evil at times. If not, at least he's Evilly Affable?

Cartman knows completely about Kenny's deaths.

In Cartmanland, Cartman is told about the incident of Kenny dying on one of his rides, however he replies with "He dies all the time." Also he always cares the least when he dies going as far as to say "Cool" once and only reply with "Gross" when he explodes into rats. The latter could just be him being a Jerkass, but the former is pretty blatant.

Sorry, I meant to put that in wild mass guessing, but since the Cerebus Retcon of Kenny's "superpower" it's less negative continuity when it comes to that stuff.

Re: the last poster on Executive Meddling How does linking to Word of God prove you are not being a mindless sheep? people who blindly believe in their god are still sheep. it is not Did Not Do The Research to suggest otherwise. too much argument on main page there.

Re: Keep Circulating The Tapes.

I just watched the "Super Best Friends" episode on Foxtel a few days ago, and I live in Australia. So would that mean the ban on that episode only applies to certain countries (and thus that part of the article would need clarification)?

Given australian TV show's can say shit before watershed I'm not suprised you can watch "Super Best Friends There"

Why would you build a sandcastle with a bulldozer? There's no finess! You'd run it over! It would just be a big lump of sand!

Even South Park's animation is better than a lump of sand.

He's talking about one of the South Park animators comparing south park's animation style to "building a sand castle with a bulldozer". This is because South Park actually uses a CGI program called Maya (which is the same program used to animate the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park) to animate its crappy cardboard looking animation. It also helps them get the animation done VERY quickly. Occasionally they use the program for a little more advanced things (like Cthulhu), for the most part they stick to the original animation.

It is even lampshaded in the trailers for the movie.

The analogy is used to make the point that using Maya is admittedly overkill when animating a show that still looks like it\'s being done with construction paper. But as CPF Mfan pointed out, it enables the production team to get episodes animated very quickly, which helps the show immensely in lampooning current events while they\'re still relevant and fresh in peoples\' minds. Compare it to shows like the Simpsons who if they ever mention current events it\'s usually weeks (or in the olden days, months,) after the fact when interest is likely to have already died down.

Does anyone else see a red box over a character in the image, right of the South Park sign and above/left of Mr. Garrison?

I do see a red box around Muhammad right of the South Park sign and above/left of Mr. Mackey

How strange. Apparently this is the official Season 10 opening image, and it's also the first such image that shows up on google search.

I don't really want to copy The Other Wiki and just use the most current image (Season 13). I've tried putting up a simpler one that only shows the four main characters in South Park's signature animation style. Better?

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.
If you can't read this one, hit reload for the page.
The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
