South Park Kills Queen, Britain Reacts
I haven’t watched South Park in a while so I missed the episode in question, which ran last wednesday the 28th — in The Snuke they parody 24, depicting an elaborate terrorist plot where the Queen tries to regain control of the US (and Hilary Clinton winds up with a doomsday device in her vagina, hmmm). Upon failure to overthrow our regime du jour, Elizabeth II puts a gun in her mouth and pulls the trigger. Needless to say, some are calling for the ban of this episode, which is set to air in the UK this year. Today there’s a great, even-handed post about it on the Guardian’s Arts Blog that explains more (and a bit of a firestorm in the comments).
