I just saw an interview with Matt & Trey, where they said that South Park was their soapbox for them to shout at America (in a good way).  Some of my friends don't like it; they think it's foul mouthed & lacks any sophistication & class.  I say Funny is Funny, and South Park is funny.

Cartman's version of Pokerface is the best thing I have ever heard!

I enjoy that it seems the whole episode was a setup so they could use the last line of dialogue in the episode.  The Enola Gay picture with the whale and dolphin was pretty funny, too.

As I recall they did that with Towely, way back in the day, except the setup too two episodes.

From Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants (the episode which followed Towelie):

Stan:     I don't care! We're going!
Towelie:  [dropping in] Don't forget to bring a towel.
The Boys: Aaagh!
Cartman:  Oh no, not Towelie.
Towelie:  When goin' someplace new, you should always bring a towel.
Stan:     Okay, thanks, Towelie. [rolls his eyes]
Towelie:  Do you wanna get high?
Cartman:  [quickly] No, we don't wanna get high!!
Towelie:  You mean, you don't want Towelie around?
Cartman:  That's right!
Towelie:  So am I to understand that there's been a ...Towelie ban?...
          [snorts and starts laughing]
The Boys: [not amused. Kyle covers his eyes] Awww!
Stan:     Goddamnit, get the hell out of here, Towelie!
Towelie:  Alright, see ya. [walks off]

There was no particular reason why Towelie had to be a towel in the Towelie episode. But after seeing the next episode it certainly seemed clear to me that he had been made a towel to set up the awful "Towelie ban" = "Taliban" pun.

If you listen to the commentary they say that they came up with the idea for Towelie by thinking of the lamest character they could make. Give Matt and Trey some respect

I saw the Whale Whores episode last night.  One thing about South Park, it's as sarcastic & sharp as Futurama.  Very funny.

Ummm, look at the airdates of those 2 episodes, they aired months apart from eachother. The first episode was done well BEFORE the 9/11 attacks. Not to mention, if you listen to the commentary, the character of Towelie was something the writers had been doing for a few years before then. It would've been impossible for them to create the character JUST for the taliban pun.

Anyway, the bikee episode had a few laughs. Not quite as good as the last few episodes, seems like it could have been a lot better but they ended up pursuing the whole "true meaning of the word fag" thing rather than any of the other potential avenues they could've taken. Oh well, at least Season 13's turning out a hell of a lot better than Season 12. smile

Then we're in agreement. Matt and Trey masterminded the 9/11 attacks.

I'll take you're word on the information in the commentaries and airing dates but in my defense the two episodes aired on consecutive weeks here in New Zealand.

Also, what does 9/11 have to do with this? As I recall the Taliban made world-wide headlines in the mid-to-late '90s with their seizing of power in Afganistan and their subsequent hard-line activities. So a reference to them in an overseas TV show wasn't even mildly unsusal regardless of whether it was pre- or post-9/11.

hobbitboy, you're giving matt and trey waaay too much credit for foresight and planning, is the problem. My impression from interviews and commentaries is they generally don't know how the episode they're currently working on is going to end until a day or two before it airs; they make it all up as they go along.

I never understood the towelie ban joke until this day. no no

Speaking of creditation, I just noticed that in the South Park movie, the dance Saddam Hussein does at the end of I Can Change is the dinner roll dance Charlie Chaplin does in The Gold Rush! IMDB doesn't seem to agree with me, but I think it's just playing coy. :

I'd pick either Dead Celebrities (mostly for Kyle's "if it makes you bleed, why do you still eat them?" comments) or Butter's Bottom Bitch as the best of the run, and place Whale Whores as the weakest, so far. At first it seemed like it was going to make a good satirical comment on the culture of whaling, but it just veered into a joke about blaming Hiroshima on whales with a silly voice. Maybe it's just me, but the identical exaggerated Asian accents aren't as funny the tenth or eleventh time you hear it, especially when the joke is supposed to support the entire episode. I'd complain about "they took our jerbs" as well, but this is breaking the definition of a paragraph as it is. hmpf

The hiroshima joke wasn't the punchline of Whale Whores, though.

Absolutely.  After the Mel Gibson episode where Cartman turned into the South Park equivalent of Hitler, it was nice to see the tables turned.  Can't wait for the next episode...
