With Apologies to Jesse Jackson

The first episode of the eleventh season of South Park aired last evening. I caught an encorepresentation of it as I was watching the Marquette Warriors beat St. John’s in the Big East Tournament.

Let me just say that I laughed but it wasn’t as funny as it could have been. I do have to admit that seeing Cartman wrestle with a midget was hilarious. Here’s hoping the season gets better.

P.S. Cut Randy some slack. There is no plural form of the word ‘Nagger’. So ‘Naggers’ does not exist.

P.P.S. If you think the federal government banning the use of the word ‘n*gger guy’ sounds ludicrous, it is actually based in the realm of reality. The New York City Council, which also banned trans-fats, took the term ‘nanny state’ one-step further by banning the term ‘n*gger’, a resolution which of course is unenforceable.

P.P.P.S. Anyone else see the blatant hypocrisy of Comedy Central censoring the image of Mohammed but allowing this episode which utters the word ‘n*gger’ forty-two times to air unaltered?
