Kyle Broflovski: Will you stop it with that? What part of this is funny to you?
Eric Cartman: Kyle, we need to try to find out...
Kyle Broflovski: What part of being infected with a deadly disease do you find funny?
Eric Cartman: I don't think it's funny, Kyle.
Kyle Broflovski: Then stop saying you're not just sure, you're HIV positive! This isn't funny, AIDS isn't funny, dying isn't funny, so shut the fuck up!

Its time to Retire this South Park.
13 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

I've been a long to supporter of this show… even with blind outrage on the non-fans, or people who have never see it before and blindly hate it. However this new season starting off with "Tonsil Trouble" proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that the staff has no ability to be creative. List out your top 10 episodes… top 20… top 50… these last 2 seasons have been flat out horrible. Whatever the writers were smoking 5 years ago… and now? They need to go back to the old days or replace the staff with some new blood. I hate seeing something so fun and silly go flat out "flat-line" and the staff beats the dead horse well beyond mush. Outrageous fun tuned into outrageous excrement. More political garbage. South Park season 12 already has proved this show needs to be canceled. Please retire with some kind of grace if you can't get back to your roots. This shell of a show sucks.
