This move might finally really kill Kenny.
Hermosa Beach has decided to explore new names for South Park, its modest open space at Valley Drive and Fourth Street that happens to have the same handle as a popular television cartoon known for killing one of its main characters in almost every episode and treading heavily on delicate subjects.
Throughout 10 seasons of child abuse jokes, anti-Semitic comments and overall irreverent antics, "South Park" has endured the wrath of the Church of Scientology, both ends of the political spectrum and educators across the country.
And now the controversial cartoon's bad language and crude humor has prickled the Hermosa Beach Woman's Club.
After more than 80 years do-gooding in town, the group recently offered to donate a sign for South Park, but also wanted to change the park's name.
"The ladies feel that with the notoriety of the cartoon ... the name is not appropriate," stated a letter to the city's Parks and Recreation Commission.
Members offered up Centennial Park -- a nod to the city's upcoming 100th birthday -- as an alternative, but instead the commission decided Wednesday to let a subcommittee look into new names as it develops a master plan for South Park, said Community Resources Director Lisa Lynn.
Diane Miller, the club's treasurer, said the moniker modification was more of a request than a contingency.
"I guess most of the people feel if (the city) would allow us to do a sign, maybe we should come up with a different name rather than South Park," she said.
And while Miller never noticed the park's connection to the fictional Colorado hometown of Kyle, Cartman, Stan and Kenny, she said the club's chief beef with the show is its rude language.
"I personally like the show 'South Park,' " Miller said. "It is a filthy-mouth show. But it's not as bad as Roseanne Barr or Eddie Murphy."
Billy Meistrell, whose father cofounded Body Glove, asked the commission on Wednesday to consider an homage to the city's place in surf culture history and Body Glove, which once donated part of its land to make the South Park's parking lot.

I've forgotten which episode that quote was in, but it seems completely relevant to this.
That's Lil Crime Stoppers and Cartman says that.
"Whats your name?"
"What's in a name?"
Kyle and Rebecca.
..Oh man, I should totally make an outrageous cartoon with it's location being in New Jersey just so they'll want to change it's name. HAH, TAKE THAT NEW JERSEY! BITCHES!
YEAH, I JUST CALLED YOU GUYS FEMALE DOGS, WHADDAYA GONNA DO ABOUT THAT NOW, HMMM?
A 7-11 is a 24-hour convenience store and a smurf is a small blue fictional cartoon character.
So to hell with Hermosa Beach and it's whiny old bitties. There's plenty of other South Park-age out there:
You read it! You can't unread it!
But that is south london, so it probably just is a park in the south.
We love you england, we do!
