Video: ‘South Park’ Takes A Crack At Sandusky, Penn State Scandal

South Park Penn StateNo one crosses boundary lines quite like Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Last night’s episode of South Park saw Kenny and his siblings turned over to child protective services and when they arrive their case worker seems to have a case of late-night-talk-show-host-itis. The tubby Child Services administrator is more concerned with his comedy career than helping the kids, and apparently his comedy career involves only jokes about things like Neverland Ranch and more timely scandals like the Jerry Sandusky issue at Penn State. (Though if you saw Jon Stewart’s rant the other night, these little jokes are just chump change.)

Alright, Parker and Stone, we expect this sort of line-crossing from you two and since you produce your episodes so quickly we knew some sort of commentary on Penn State was coming, but did these jokes have to be delivered with paintings of terrifying clowns in the background too?

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
