"South Park" takes on Occupy Wall Street.

Here, watch the whole episode, "The 1% Solution." Or just check out the part with Michael Moore:


ADDED: Hey, Michael Moore reminds me of the anti-Scott Walker guy with a bullhorn who bullhorned straight into Meade's face last March. And also the guy who blew a vuvuzela right at my face. In case you're wondering which is worse, it's the vuvuzela. A bullhorn amplifies your voice but it does not channel and project saliva.

The cartoon artist got those Michael Moore "jelly rolls" perfectly.

Can't watch it on my iPad. That's the great drawback of the iPad. Doesn't employ the Flash Player.

Will have to wait until I get home to my iMac.

I'm looking forward to the episode. I've got the feeling the South Park boys nailed it again.

As The Blonde says, that's a lot more information than I needed.

South Park actually did a great anti-OWS long before there was an OWS. From 2005, one of my all-time favorite episodes: Die hippie, die!

But the bullhorn happened to Meade, not you, so how can one compare?

Auntie Ann,

South Park has been consistently anti-hippy since day 1.

Funny, I recently came across the episode "Die, Hippie, Die" from several seasons ago, and it was a perfect skewering of OWS culture. If you have Netflix streaming, check it out.

I always loved the part where Stan and Kyle come to the realization that the idiots they're with aren't really going to do anything about the things they're complaining about.

RE: Die, Hippie, Die

Truly Cartman does get them in a way so many others don't. I've been advocating for weeks for the people overlooking these twits to put speakers in their windows and start blasting death metal. Send 'em skittering like cockroaches.

(And if they get busted for noise, they could literally have a case for "non-equal enforcement of the laws".)

matt and trey have been a little upset with mr. moore since their comments were taken way out of context in "bowling for columbine"

they even blew him up in "Team America" (F$%k YEAH)

Brilliant Parallel: Michael Moore is easily just as fat and out of shape as "the 1%" that is Eric Cartman.

Great episode.

Even got the anti-Semitism.

And the hordes of media interviewing a handful of occupiers.
