I would have laughed if the writers were crab people or underpant gnomes but come on... manatees playing with idea balls. What were m&t on? geez... anyway I got one more complaint. They never returned to the scene with the heads in sand. They said that they would find out if there would be enough sand to bury everyone but they barely mentioned the people in the sand again in part 2. Anyway, besides these complaints... Brilliant. I just prefer part 1.
Why would Crab People or Underpants Gnomes be any better than Manatees? Cause they've been on the show before? At least Manatees was a new idea. My theory is that because Manatees are an endangered species, they're not afraid of terrorists because they understand Principles are more important than Survival. And come on...Manatees. Who jokes about manatees anymore? Except on South Park when they dissected manatees in I-forget-which-episode? Manatees are funny! Sea Cow!!

And you know, Coen, getting overly aggressive when it comes to your point of view simply shows that you don't have much faith in it yourself. I'm not disagreeing with what you're saying, just how you're saying it. Only pointing that out.
It's sarcasm. While I enjoy rubbing it in, I'm lampooning them more than anything.
It wouldn't be unlike TV execs to manufacture an issue and get people all fired up. What is it that Cartman says in the ep the American history project? Something like "That's the beauty of America (CC). We can say one thing and do another."
But that theory just didn't seem to vibe with the tone of the whole episode. The story played out all serious, for the most part and to go the other way with it at the end doesn't quite work. It didn't feel right.
Trust your gut, I guess.
I look forward to hearing Matt & Trey's opinions on the whole debacle.
With Chef gone and the whole Muhammad censorship thing, this season is taking on a surreal quality; like it's happening in an episode of South Park.
You read it! You can't unread it!

Yes, that's what I have been trying to say for a while now, but you put it in perfect words. It's like what is occuring in the show is happening in real life. I love the new episodes, I think they are awesome. They thus far have managed to retain the comedy factor yet are very thought-provoking.
Also last night my initial reaction was that it was not part of the story line but also wasn't a last minute thing although it would sort of make sense as a last minute thing due to the quality of the retaliation video. It resembles the santa versus jesus and was awsome but does looks slapped together at last minute. The look however could be explained as being that way for alot of different reasons, maybe because it was supposed to be a cheaply produced cartoon they were showing or maybe thats how they are depicting muslim cartoons...or I dont know but I'm thinking the last minute feeling is just a style.
Also I won 20 dollerz because a bunch of my friends said it was part of the story and I told them to lick my nuts and fork up 20 dollers if tommarow we found out they wouldnt let them show muhammad!
Same thing with the Danish Cartoons, they got relesed in Denmark, no one even noticed. They get released in Norway several months later, and published on the internet. Within a month the magazine that owns the rights gains millions by allowing the worlds media to use the images.
This episode won't get the same negative reaction, because M&T are already rich. They made this episode for the message, and not for ratings or the money. The only way people would have found out, is if someone (usually the creator of anti-islamic propoganda) created a spam email telling people to boy-cott southpark and Viacom, which is highly unlickly.
PS That episode made me feel like watching Family Guy heh. Or at least the Simpsons.
As enjoyable as abuse.
