How Is This Funny?

  /   Sunday December 18, 2005  

I remember one newspaper columnist who wrote a kind of mild version of a sex and violence story for the first paragraph of his column. He made it up, and he said that it was easy to write. Indeed, our societal desensitization to vulgarity has made it easy for people who have absolutely no talent to make a quick buck by producing whatever kind of media they can sell. This is definitely the case with South Park.

Comedy Central aired an episode of South Park on December 7th, the night before the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, about the bleeding statue of the Blessed Mother. It was concluded that the statue was just having her period. I cannot for life of me understand what is so enjoyable about this filth. I never watch Comedy Central because there seems to be a lot of stuff there that simply isn’t funny. South Park has no redeeming value. It doesn’t even have decent animation.

Some may ask “What’s the big deal? It’s just a TV show.” Well, let’s think for a minute how you’d feel if you saw someone making crude remarks about your mother, father, brother, sisters, wife, children, etc. Would you be entertained by those remarks? If not, then why do we call it entertainment (and even pay someone to do it) when someone offends our God. It’s just some guy with no talent trying to make a quick buck producing easy-to-create shows.
