In Case You Missed It: South Park Kanye West Fishsticks Episode

Ok this was one of the more funny episodes from those professional jokesters. Nothing will ever top the Tom Cruise/R Kelly/John Travolta Trapped in the Closet episode but this comes close if you like bawdy, irreverent humor. It’s a powerful comedic device (and a little manipulative) to do an animated series with main characters as children so the creators can get away with saying controversial things. As long as actual children aren’t watching!

I’d like to make it clear in case you don’t know this is a parody. Mr. West himself responded on his blog with a response (excerpted here):

SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT’S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. I NEED TO JUST GET PAST MYSELF. I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I’M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I’M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I’M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTH PARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE. THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO DRAW MY CREW. THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY ALSO!! I’M SURE THERE’S GRAMMATICAL ERRORS IN THIS…THAT’S HOW YOU KNOW IT’S ME!
