So, by now, most of you already know that Bob Parsons, the CEO of GoDaddy, killed an elephant in Africa. I think that’s horrible. His excuse was that elephants were destroying crops, but to me, this is like when people living in mansions in the mountains say a bear was digging through their garbage. If you live in a place where there is wildlife, and you just keep encroaching on that wildlife, then yes, you will probably have a run-in with an animal. Just like with bears, if you leave your garbage bin open, leave food out or even leave bird food everywhere, you’re basically asking the bear to come over. In this case, people are on elephant land, growing crops that elephants love and then being angry that elephants are eating those crops. You can call me a hippie if you want, but I think that’s so wrong.
As I tend to do with most things, I’d like to express my feelings with this clip from South Park. In this early episode, Stan’s Uncle Jimbo and his friend Ned talk about hunting animals, including endangered species, to “thin out their numbers”. Read the rest of this entry »
I just saw a tweet from @lynzway about a South Park art show in NYC. As I was clicking through the pics, I realized that Mrs. Way herself had a piece in the show, seen below. So, this finally makes a clear connection between two things I really like (My Chemical Romance and South Park) and completely explodes my mind grapes.

The basketball season is back and, as someone who watches every Suns game, I constantly see the LeBron James “What Should I Do?” commercial. After the 400th time, I practically knew the whole thing by heart… and I wanted to scream every time I saw it. Imagine my delight when South Park made fun of the infamous commercial on their latest episode, Mysterion Rises!
In the clip under the jump, the CEO of BP, Captain Hindsight, superhero Mysterion and Cartman (as The Coon) all ask us LeBron’s question.

Oh South Park, you say it better than I ever could.

I tend to spend a large portion of my day of reading really racist comments on the work facebook page from horrible people who will take any opportunity to spew their hatred when it comes to immigration. It’s not just on stories that have to do with immigration either. These people can find a way to make anything about immigration. If we have a story about puppies wearing funny hats, they’ll figure out some way to launch a tirade about Obama, people from Mexico or a blanket statement about all liberals.
You can imagine how exhausting that might be for someone like me, so when I come home, I turn on the tv and zone out until I fall asleep. When I flipped on the tv today, my Tivo was recording the “Goobacks” episode of South Park. If you haven’t seen it, the full episode is online at southparkstudios.com.
This was the part that was on right when I turned the tv on:
I wish I could line up all those people who post all that awful crap online and force them to sit down and watch this. Maybe they’d be like Stan and learn something.
