Butters' full name: Leopold "Butters" Stotch. See more »


Exactly who is related to who in the Marsh family is never consistent. Early episodes imply that Jimbo and Marvin (Stan's grandfather) are on Sharon's side of the family, whereas more recent ones imply they are on Randy's side. Being on Sharon's side makes sense for Jimbo, as he has a different last name. However, Marvin's last name is, indeed, confirmed to be Marsh. Matt Stone revealed in an interview that Jimbo Kerns is Randy's half-brother. See more »

Good, rude and relevant satire: when naughty humor and smart minds come together, great things will happen
14 October 2016 | by (wherever good films play) – See all my reviews

Now in its 20th season, South Park still dissects the most ridiculous behaviour in our society with merciless precision, and nobody comes away clean. And it's funny how people still react the same way to the show as they did 20 years ago:

The self-proclaimed flag bearers for our nation's moral standards still can't see anything in the show beyond its naughty language and overall vulgarity (and while half of them are genuinely offended by the show for those reasons, the other half secretly loves the show preciselx for its naughty language and overall vulgarity and toilet humor).

The ones who make fun of the self-proclaimed flag bearers still believe only they are smart enough to see anything beyond the obvious naughty language and overall vulgarity in it (and while most of them pretend to only love the show for its satirical elements, the majority of them actually love it because of its naughty language and overall vulgarity and toilet humor).

And then there's the third group of people who get the satire but just flat out admit that it's effing hilarious seeing Gerald getting peed in the face by his loving wife Sheila or when the boys protest the girls' protest by proudly taking their tiny wieners out while raising a fist.

If anything comes close to good satire and ruthless comedy in the vein of Monty Python's 'Life of Brian' today, it's South Park. Blind followers of any movement beware: Matt and Trey have it in for all of us, nobody is safe. God help us all if they ever decide to retire, society would be all the worse for it.

Come to think of it: Let's start a petition for a co-presidency in the U.S. so they both can run for president and save the country - and the world - from either the giant douche or the turd sandwich.

(Damn, that last comment makes me a follower too).
