Yeah, of course. It was just that three episodes in a row had something in them that south park had already done an episode of. I'm not putting them down, though, or anything like that. I'm just wondering if it's been the other way 'round now, with who's already done what.
With "Current events" nothing is original no matter how you twist it and everything is property of everyone because "facts" can't be copyrighted.
I have never watched the simpsons- ever. I have only seen parts here and there; usually ones my friends/family insist I watch. So I don't really know what is normal from them or what to expect.
Certain things you listed, such as the bugs bunny parody and the PETA blood tossing do sound "stolen" to me.

Or, yeah, not south park-like, but many of the same subjects as in the south park episodes that were made about the same time (season 9, I think). Like the gay marriage thing, then the next episode refers to global warming and granpa is working at Walmart, and then Lisa is a PETA member and throws a bucketful of blood to Krusty, wearing a fur coat. And homer having this freaky Bugs Bunny scene with the miniatyre army helicopter which is almost exactly like what Cartman did with Osama bin laden... although in a way earlier season.
The 16th season of The Simpsons predates most of the South Park you say they've copied. (I'm not sure about that Homer helicopter thing, I must've missed that one). Especially considering they take 9-10 months to get a Simpson's episode out.
At any rate, it's not like South Park has a patent on addressing current issues in thier show. There's plenty of room for both shows to have their own take on the same basic concept.

The 400th episode of The Simpsons is supposed to be a 24 parody, too. So who stole from whom there? (Honestly, two different shows do a parody of the same thing, and one is stealing off of the other? Ehh?) And I'm wondering how PETA throwing buckets of blood on people wearing fur coats is stealing, too, since that basically falls under the same thing as a "current event" - it's free for everyone to use and hardly anyone is stealing off of anyone.
Other than that, pretty much agreed with what everyone else said, especially Big Will's point.
warriors- the boys have to reach adestination in south park and they have to get by a bunch of goofy gangs.
Groundhogs day-cartman could just go crazy (it's kinda like the wii episode I guess.)
Goonies- They could go treasure hunting
THERE ARE TONS OF WAYS TOO MAKE SOME NEW FUN INTERESTING STUFF W/ THOSE CHARCTERS.

Well this week's South Park will be the 156th episode. I don't know how that relates to your opinion of current shows considering your quote, but there it is.
