I was a big ‘South Park’ fan back in the day, but only catch it rarely anymore though it is still usually pretty funny when I do see it. It has been interesting to see the big press over a story that surfaced in the past week about how Tom Cruise apparently pressured Paramount Pictures to not rerun the South Park episode that made fun of Scientology. Paramount is a division of Viacom, which also owns Comedy Central, and it seems that Tom got his way as the show was replaced at the last minute by a different episode.
I ran across this story today that features a hilarious response from ‘South Park’ creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone:
“So, Scientology, you have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for Earth has just begun. Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!”
Now that’s funny. Especially when you read it on CNN.
