So did last nights episode have something to do with...

#1 Posted by m1k3 (1325 posts) -

the Modern Warfare 2 video that had to do with "fight all grenade spammers" or just a coincidence.

#2 Posted by Snipzor (3317 posts) -

Can somebody please sum the episode up for me?

#3 Posted by m1k3 (1325 posts) -

well the whole episode had to do with the F* word.

#4 Posted by TheLegendofLuke (563 posts) -

I thought that as well m1k3, seemed appropriately timed for it even if it wasn't specifically about it.

The title of the episode was "The F Word"

The F word? Sounds like South Park being South Park and has nothing to do with CoD.

Lol, maybe you should have clicked the link. It's the official South Park website, which DOES have full episodes.
 
It's okay, little guy...I'll be gentle later so you don't cry during sex.
#11 Edited by Snipzor (3317 posts) -

So from descriptions, this is one of those preachy episodes that takes itself seriously. Considering I haven't enjoyed the series of late, I have a slight feeling this one won't be much different. 
 
And just as I thought, it's exactly what I thought they would do this season. So because this is on topic, here is the latest of "Sessler's Soapbox".

No I don't think so, just attention seeking assholes.
#15 Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5376 posts) -

I never once thought about Modern Warfare 2 when watching that episode, but who knows? They do create episodes just a few days before release, so it would be possible.

#16 Edited by MrKlorox (11206 posts) -

Son of a fucking bitch. This was an oddly placed and poorly titled thread.
 
Anyway, yes it was an obvious link. They make each episode within a week. There should have been enough time from when it was posted on the 30th (immediate backlash) to the time it aired on the 4th. There are times where the episode title isn't even announced until the day it airs.

#17 Posted by SteamPunkJin (1286 posts) -

I don't think Trey Parker or Matt Stone give a fuck about MW2's Viral Video, I think as usual they're attacking the absurdity of being offended by a word (something they've done for many many many years) and that as far as words go they're constantly changing. And as they pointed out in the episode itself, that 'Fag' hasn't always been used as an insult specifically for gay people, doesn't have to mean gay etc etc.

#18 Posted by Andorski (5189 posts) -

The idea that f** has no connection towards homophobia has existed long before the MW2 issue and this South Park episode.  I love South Park, but their latest episodes are lagging in their pop-culture commentary.  They made fun of High School Musical after the third one came out, and the jokes they had about Whale Wars pertained to events that occurred years before.
 
Still... there are some jokes that will be forever timeless, like this:

#19 Posted by Apathylad (3066 posts) -
@Snipzor: Strange thing about that video is that Sessler really didn't call out Infinity Ward as much as he was telling a nameless audience why they shouldn't use that word.
#20 Posted by jakob187 (21642 posts) -

Adam Sessler will say shit, but he won't say fags.  So what does he think about people in England asking for a cigarette? 
 
Then again...you take the negative context away from it, and the word is just another word.  =  / 
 
As for the South Park episode...it's South Park.

#21 Posted by iam3green (14390 posts) -

i don't think it had anything to do with modern warfare 2. i never even thought about modern warfare 2 when i was watching it. i just thought that they were calling the bikers a fag.

#22 Posted by p4ddym1607 (995 posts) -

It dont think it had anything to do with MW2 in a direct sense. 
But it shows why people shouldnt be offended by such things. 
People who were offended by the MW2 video should just get over themselves. Besides the video was completely dumb

Uh... is there a reason you're acting like a total tool? You didn't need to attack the guy. And when the guy said he was pretty sure the site was legal, he meant the xepisodes one. And from now on stop being a douchebag for no reason. THANKS!

No, I don't think it had anything to do with the recent MW2 video.

 The word fag can mean a lot of things...but to me its just a demeaning word that belittles a male.

#32 Posted by AhmadMetallic (18955 posts) -

oh right wednesday was here a few days ago .. thanks, i'll watch the episode and get back to ya

its still an issue today everyday isnt it? whenever someone uses the word Fag theres always some fag telling the first guy not to be a homophobe... anyway, i dont see why everything shown on a new episode of a tv show should be brand new and a hot subject to be discussed...

Its not fair to say that they are lagging in their pop culture commentary just because of those two episodes.. what about all the rest? the obama one ? the dead celebrities ? ......  
 Plus, correct me if im wrong, but the High School Musical hype DID get twice as much ENORMOUS after the third movie, amirite ? so it was the right time to mock that rediculous popularity it has. 
 
 
Anyway i just watched it, it was fun and funny :) good old South Park humor. well, no maybe not good OLD sp but its good enough. i dont like being too judgmental. those guys have cracked me up for too long for me to keep asking for 20 minute non-stop-laughter episodes..  
 
And i dont think it was related to the MW2 trailer since it didnt emphasize on the word FAGS itself.
#34 Posted by regularassmilk (1380 posts) -

I think everyone should get over it.
Fag, is just a word.
Fuck, is just a word. 
Its a word, and nothing more.
It shouldn't offend anyone.

 While i agree with the sentiment and believe people just need to calm the fuck down, but words can hurt more then you may know. If you have ever been bullied, picked on or harassed because your different in some way --fat, skinny, short, tall, likes girls, likes guys, black, white, asian, hispanic, or have unpopular opinions etc.-- then you know they can hurt and hurt for a long time. 
 
I just think the video got lucky and happened to come out around the same time and happened to have more of a relevance because of the timing of the MW2 video. Personally i don't think the MW2 video was out of line as they where just trying to appeal to their majority audience, that of the annoying 12 year old who thinks it is cool to say the new bad word they learned that day as loud as they can constantly. I find it hilarious that this gets people so worked up when if you logged onto an online lobby for the game within 5 min you will have been called worse things then fag. Perhaps it is just their way of trying to get people who may be buying the game for the first time accustomed to what they are going to have to listen to if they want to play the game online.
#36 Posted by Apathylad (3066 posts) -

It seems like it was just a bizarre coincidence.

#37 Posted by Shadow (4977 posts) -

It had nothing to do with the video.  If I had to guess, I'd say Matt and Trey Parker were eating lunch at a diner or something when a bunch of assholes riding Harleys drove up and revved their engines a bunch before finally....FINALLY leaving.
#38 Posted by Jimbo (9772 posts) -

Certainly hit a nerve with Adam 'Camper than a row of tents' Sessler.

Seeing what's going on in the backround, that video makes me never ever want to play World at War.
