I can’t believe it! I was writing a blog post, when South Park came on. Now I use to watch South Park when it first came out, but after they started getting really gross with some episodes, I quit watching.
Now, since I use the TV as white noise, while trying to think of a topic for tonight’s blog, something unusual happened… I started watching a South Park Episode (which is called “Margaritaville”). After watching the complete episode, I was surprised to realize that I agreed with it!

Sometimes South Park really does have some intelligence in the cartoon! I was very impress with how they described the causes of “The Great Recession”, and how politicians take credit for everything good (Obama in this case).
Click the link above, the episode isn’t really that vulgar, and the message is clear and accurate.
I’m always amazed at what you can learn for unexpected sources… But then again, intelligent people write those TV shows and movies, so it’s only natural that their real thoughts on matters would occasionally be reflected in their art. This seems to happen a lot with South Park, usually at the end of the show, Kyle or Stan does a little speech that revels the author’s viewpoints on particular matters.
I just find it hard to believe that people can sometimes hear a more intelligent explanation from South Park than the popular media or government!
Have you ever gleemed information from unlikely sources? I know in the dilbert cartoons, the garbage collector is really supposed to be the smartest guy in the comic strip.
Stan or Kyle for our next President?
