An important news event has happened within the past week or so, which means there's already a South Park episode about it. Here's a video of all the Penn State material from the latest edition, most of which is of course not safe for work due to all of the things for which a South Park episode could be not safe for work.
For those of us who've yet to find anything amusing about the entire disaster besides the press conference about Joe Paterno's firing and Joe Amendola's legal strategy, parts of this are sneaky funny.
Nobody else need make a joke about Penn State being like the Catholic Church or Neverland Ranch now that a South Park character has praised himself for doing so.
Our speaker's jokes are awful, both in originality and in LOOK WHAT YOU'RE JOKING ABOUT, but I get the sense that that's the point. The only thing funny about this entire thing could be people trying to make something funny out of it.
And you cannot make the case that the show's creators are taking the scandal lightly after viewing the shot at the 2:02 mark.
