I'm siding with Trey & Matt

So many years ago I was in high school and this crappy little cartoon came on the TV. It had a little hype but not much. For most people looking back into their past, that would be the end of the story.

But this was no ordinary cartoon. This was a cartoon created so two post-college males could poke fun at anything they wanted through 8 year old kids. Yea, I’m talking about South Park. Great show. It has made fun of anything and everything including themselves. The generalized morals of every story ever: don’t be a douche. Pretty simple to understand.

Well now there is trouble in this little world. Apparently they are being the subjects of censorship. No you liberals, moderates and conservatives, the antithesis of your respective parties is not the cause of this. In fact no government entity has any hand in this censorship. It is in fact the corporation that owns Comedy Central which airs the show. What happened? Read the story.

I like the version Drake & Zeke had on their show this morning. To surmise their discussion:
Tom Cruise threatened to not promote Mission Impossible 3 if the Scientology Episode (“Trapped in the Closet”) of South Park aired last week. MI3 (or as I like to call it, “The First Scientology promotional action film of next year”) is expected to be a huge cash cow for Paramount Pictures. The entire film industry is $truggling for any money they can get (this is direct cause of the SHITTY movies they have made in general over the last 5 to 10 years). Paramount Pictures is owned by Viacom. Viacom is also the parent company of the company (TimeWarner?) that owns Comedy Central. So the word was passed down through the official chain of companies that Comedy Central was not allowed to air that episode. It was also passed down that South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone were not allowed to comment on it.

But they did send a message to Variety who gives a good version of the story too.

So here’s to Scientology: Fuck You. I’m religiously tolerant and all, but this isn’t a religion. It’s a mind-fuck. And you are being a collective entity that I refer to as a douche.

Oh yea, I can’t wait for the child of Tomkat to be born. Or as some theologians have called it: the Anti-Christ.

Ok, I’m getting away topic from this before I get really mad.
