Penn State Scandal Reaches South Park (Video)



Well, that didn’t take long. You knew America’s most irreverent and possibly most polarizing satirists were going to weigh in on the Penn State scandal much sooner rather than later.

I recommend that you watch the rerun of last night’s episode of South Park on Comedy Central! Check your digital listings guide and DVR it! It was hilarious; not just because of the Penn State jokes, but the white trash jokes- which were much funnier actually.

It’s sad that most of the people I know don’t use the term “white trash” anymore. Maybe they’re more PC than I am; maybe they’re like an alarmingly high number of people in this country- trying to emulate “Jersey Shore” and therefore become white trash themselves, but whatever the reason, the term is dying.

SO GLAD to see South Park reviving it. See Chris Rock’s bit on the dwindling of the N word/how he likes to still use the word in spite of that, and you’ll understand why I cling to using the term “white trash,” because I’m surrounded by it almost everywhere I go.

Back to PSU and South Park, watch a snippet after the jump.
