Did anyone watch the latest SP episode? It tackled fat pride (Honey Boo Boo and her mother) and the general attitude towards obesity in America.

I actually thought it was a really good episode.

Just to let you know it doesn't make fun of obese people, but rather their refusal to change their lifestyle because "it's a disease!".

Also they poke fun on the whole "if you're not obese you must be anorexic".

Good ol' US of A
LOVED IT!!!! and I don't usually like South Park.

esp. when he goes into gym class and mocks American culture for promoting anorexia and accuses all the thin kids of having eating disorders. I almost died.

I love SP, and my husband hates fat as much as I do, so can't wait to watch this w/ him. We DVR all the new episodes so it's on my TV right now. Love it!

Loved it! Watched it twice already.

Been a sp fan since the first season and they are always spot on with social commentary. I knew it was only a matter of time before they got on Honey Boo Boo. Rightly so!

I watched it, it was superb. Cartman epiphanized the ignorance of the fat acceptance culture in America. I was just sitting and watching the episode saying "yes, yes!" the whole time haha.

This episode was hilarious! I was so disgusted when they were making the 'sketty.' Butter, ketchup and pasta sounds so gross to me. :superpuke: The scene with the scooters in WalMart was also pretty great.

The scooters and mud wrestling were probably the funniest things I have seen on the show. The funniest part is that even though the makers meant all of the things Cartman was saying as a joke, it is what fat people actually say in real life.
