I was about to say the same thing. All successful comedy series like SP (Married With Children, Simpsons, Family Guy, etc.) all deal with bits and pieces of reality. THAT'S why they're so damn funny. Homer, Al Bundy, Peter Griffin, a piece of them exists in every man. It's like if every man ever was fused together, but only the dumb parts of them. We all know someone like that or can recall an experience similar to what we see on TV, obviously what we see on TV is exaggerated and insteda of being a bunch of different people, it's all one guy.
South Park doesn't necessarily take what's in people (well it does that too) but it has grown to take from what's actually going on in the world and use it as a parable of sorts. You can be any religion or any ethinicity and laugh at what's in SP because even when it's outrageous, it is only being brutally honest.
Take the sex change episode. It starts out with a sex change. Using that as a spring board, if people want to change their sex, then they should be able to change their color, because people should be whatever color they wanna be. And then of course, if a man wants to be a dolphin and he feels in his heart of hearts that he should be a dolphin, well then by golly, he should be able to be a dolphin just like a man should be able to become a woman.
And the golden PSP episode….that and the Katrina episode are probably two of the funniest half-hour shows I've ever seen.
That is funny as hell, thank you!
Edit: I just read it again and it's even funnier.
