Gluten Free Ebola - South Park Episode

Recommended Posts

So apparently there is an upcoming episode of South Park with gluten free mentions... 

 

Here is a link for anyone interested in seeing a preview. I've never been a South Park fan however my boyfriend watches it and saw this was coming up.

I'm not a fan of South Park. I've seen a few episodes here and there, and some things are funny but overall I just don't find it amusing. My guess is that based on their type of humor that they're probably going to piss off a whole bunch of people who don't understand the South Park way, watched just because of this clip and then can't keep their panties from getting in a bunch over it. Of course, if that happens they'll just eat up the free advertising and basically tell people to go get a sense of humor and get over it too if they respond at all. I'm tempted to watch it just to see what it is.

I don't take South Park seriously.. that is true. I'll be watching to see how they manage this topic. I do see a lot of people making an uproar about it though if it's handled poorly. Even if it's supposed to be satire.

South Park has made fun of just about everyone in the whole world in some fashion.  Ebola is a new thing & I don't know that they haven't made fun of gluten-free before.  They make fun of people with handicaps, war vets, old people, all races, all religions, different professions, etc.  

 

I think it is discriminatory if they don't make fun of us, too!  Maybe Kenny has Celiac? He is always on the toilet and one of his favorite activities is pooping?

(i like south park) (husband hates it)  i'm sure they will butcher the subject, just like they do to everything else - i respect people's hatred of this show:  it's pretty offensive.  but, it's offensive to *everybody* (and i think it's hilarious but i am sick that way)  they had me at 'underpants gnomes' lololz  :D

Isn't Kenny the one who gets killed in every show? Maybe they'll feed him a loaf of bread to kill him off in this one.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

I at first was a bit apprehensive to watch it, and  tragically due to  most people making fun of this nightmare. However I did lol at  that show many times. Namely the lab with the rats. If you listen closely with headphones, one of the rats I swear squeaks out a help me ala the fly movie style. The hubby also found it funny, he still giggles at that one. He said the  mad dash to  rid the houses of the pestilance  reminded him of me when I was  getting it out of my home and scrubbing everything down furriously.

I'll have to look for it! I'm one of the sick twists who's LOVED the show. I took my 3 kids to see the movie years ago and there was ONE other couple in the movie and when they got done with the first song... the couple walked out and we had the entire theater to ourselves.

 

This is awful... but I was on the PTA thingy in the kid's elementary school and they were arguing about something and I was thinking about one of the Christmas episodes on South Park and how everyone was arguing that you can't do/say this or do/say that and someone asked, "Okay... is there anything else we need to get rid of??"  The teacher who always had Mr. Hand (and is now a woman?? I've not watched it in a while) said, "Yes... can we please get rid of the Mexicans?" So, believe it or not, one of the PTA members said, "Is there anything else?" And before I knew it was coming out of my mouth I said (in the Mr. Hand teacher's voice), "Yeah... can we get rid of the Mexicans?" There was complete silence for a few seconds and I wanted to fall thru the floor as I realized not everyone watches South Park. "SOUTH PARK... it's a joke," I stammered.

I've done a similar type of thing. On occasion I've said, "You're improving! It's entirely due to my influence of course. You mustn't take any credit." That was a quote from Doctor Who and those few times I said it, even after I explained, people were in a snit over it.

On a very serious note....

 

It is being predicted,

 

there may be a chocolate shortage!  The Ivory Coast (and other areas) are closing borders.  The migrant workers will not be allowed in to help in the harvest of cocoa beans.

 

So my dear friends, get out of my way cuz I plan on hoarding as much chocolate as possible. ;)

 

This could just be another way to incite a plague of fear and panic.  But I just can't take any chances.

Ha, I saw this and was lamenting to my husband.  Although, I would not be able to succesfully stockpile chocolate.  It would be gone quickly, and straight to my butt!

That is where my stockpile will end up too!  :rolleyes:

 

I lost my butt to Celiac years back.  I have been trying to get it back ever since.  Extra weight just hangs out in my belly.  Extra belly fat and no but makes it really hard to keep pants up. :ph34r:

My favorite chocolate is from a local company that sells single sourced chocolate. My favorites are all South American. I have no fear of a chocolate shortage, mine will keep coming. If the prices of mass produced crap chocolate go up much, consider single sourced South American chocolates. It probably won't cost much more and it's sooooo good.
