Parker and Stone, after some disappointing recent episodes, finally got a little political again. Their newest episode is about the government bailouts. While there are too many funny parts to mention, one part was particularly hysterical. Stan finds out how the Treasury Dept is deciding what action to take for any given potential bailout: they cut the head off of a chicken and let it run around on a chart! Where the headless chicken drops is their response… the boxes on the chart include:
Tax the rich
Go to war
Go to congress
I will not give away the ending, but I laughed at the same time that I was pi$$ed off, because it was so true.
Go watch the episode here at Southpark Studios. It is titled Margaritaville.
