South Park is not one to bend to anyone's will, and no topic is off limits.
In fact the animation (which is incredible for the time frame) and stories are done a week before the show airs to stay extremely topical. And last night they went after Penn State.
The question is — was it hilarious or too far?
That definitely comes down to personal opinion, and those hurt in the scandal are no laughing matter. The thing is, though, that this is satire. South Park has some of the sharpest writing and satire in the game. For example: the character, a social worker, who was making the jokes (they were actual jokes with punch lines spouted in rapid fire through the whole episode), made a final Penn State joke commenting on how he let foster kids go to a home that he didn't make sure was safe by saying, "What am I… a recruitment coach for Penn State?" But when Cartman laughed at it, the frustrated social worker yelled, "IT'S NOT FUNNY!"
For those who don't know that everything in South Park can just be assumed to be commentary without having to really think about it, that's the key moment in that episode.
Yes, maybe the volume of jokes and the extremity of them became borderline, but they were making a point.
Besides, a show that's been picked up into it's 20th season has to be doing something right.
Do U think they went too far??
Well, we certainly wouldn't have expected to hear this from him!
Donald Trump recently appeared on Piers Morgan Tonight, during which he was asked to comment on his thoughts on the Occupy Wall Street movement, and not only does he reveal that he's been asked by the representatives to do an interview, but also gives a pretty unexpected opinion on the whole thing!
Ch-ch-check out what he has to say (above)!
What do U think?? Is The Donald legit about his feelings or is he just flip-flopping?
Charlie Sheen Changes His Tune! He's Now 'Extremely Disappointed' In The New Season Of Two And A Half Men!
Two and a Half Men has lost a fan, and it's original series star Charlie Sheen!
The actor had expressed his approval of the show with replacement Ashton Kutcher, but apparently, the times have changed!
He recently said:
"You know, people aren't stupid…not all of them. You know, he's [Ashton] doing the best he can. I don't think the role is cursed, but I'm extremely disappointed with how they're handling what I left behind."
Yeah, from what everyone's saying, he's not alone in the sentiment!
We'll see how long a Sheen-less Men actually lasts!

Nancy Grace is taking a well-deserved break from her stint on Dancing With The Stars to discuss everyone's favorite subject - Lindsay Lohan's latest legal mess!
Back on October 15th, the reality figure/legal analyst said on the subject:
Even at 53-years-old, Michelle Pfeiffer still looks nearly as good as she did in her Catwoman days! Her immaculate appearance, however, begs the question whether or not she has had any plastic surgery.
In a recent interview with Elle magazine, she plays coy when tackling the subject, saying:
We LOVE giving our readers any reason to quit smoking possible, so here is another!
25% of American adults surveyed in a recent poll said they have LESS respect for those who smoke cigarettes!
That's 1 in 4 people looking down on you because of that cigarette in your mouth! What if that person is a possible employer or girlfriend?
We're not saying it's right, but simply presenting the facts. Think about it!
