South Park detectives are quick to enlist his help in cracking unsolved murder cases and Cartman is more than willing to help, for a price. In the meantime, a group of "licensed" psychics cry foul when Cartman refuses to join their ranks.

Truly. I don't think I've laughed out loud more. I can't believe they actually used her name. The part with the dog killing himself was just classic.

From the NYPost’s gossip pages:

NO COMMENT
December 7, 2004 --

PARIS Hilton is maintaining a stony silence over her portrayal in "South Park" as a "stupid spoiled whore" whose pets are driven to suicide. The episode opens with Paris' Chihuahua, Tinkerbelle, removing a pistol from the chauffeur's pocket, putting the muzzle in her tiny mouth and using a hind leg to pull the trigger and blow her brains out. It ends with a heartfelt speech from the leather-clad Mr. Slave character chastising parents for allowing Paris Hilton to be a role model for their little girls. We thought Paris and her mother, Kathy Hilton, would be eager to respond to the show's acid-penned creators, Matt Stone and Trey Parker, but repeated calls were not returned.

A Dead Zone parody? Cool. Looks like they're taking on the snake-oil salesmen again, like they did in "John Edward is a Douche".

I'm surprised Paris and her mom have not commented. In their world, any publicity is good publicity.

I think that being portrayed in a cartoon where you get shoved up a gay dude's tailpipe like a gerbil pushes the limits of that theory.

If they depicted, say, Mark Morford being shoved up Mr.Slave's disposal unit, do you think he would take it as bad publicity?

There was a Reno 911 a few weeks ago (probably a repeat) with Kenny Rogers doing a book signing and being "protected" by the deputies. I thought I was going to bust a gut laughing. There was also one with a British officer in some kind of exchange program that was hilarious.

Monday's episode was the worst ever. A 30-minute campaign commercial for fetal research, it totally forgot that South Park is supposed to be a comedy. Instead, we got long-winded pontification about how wonderful stem-cell research is.

Oh, yes, it is so daring and courageous to use the phrase "aborted fetuses (or feti)" over and over again. Not.

As often, I couldn't tell whether the greatest impact will be to promote fetal research, or to mock it, but I really don't care. The point is that the episode was about as unfunny as Chicago Hope.

Are you talking about the episode with Christopher Reeves?

If so you totally missed the point of the episode and the devestating humor used against Reeves.

No, it wasn't the Reeves episode... I think it was the atonement Viacom made them do for the Reeves episode. (The Reeves episode was way over the line, but FUNNNYYY!!)

I think in the end, they demonstrated that the fetal stem-cell movement is driven by profit as much as by human concern. Obseve that Cartman was just trying to use them for his personal gain all along, and apparently had crocodile tears for Kenny.

Find us the episode number and description from one of the various sources. I have no idea what episode you are talking about since you say it wasn't the Christopher Reeves one.

I also have a very slight memory of something that may be approaching what you are talking about but it aired long before the Reeves episode so it couldn't be an "atonement" episode as you suggest.

Yes, but that was also the "Kenny Dies. For Real" episode, which was why they were doing the over the top with the drama. They were going for the "Movie of Week" vibe that you often see on Lifetime. Plus, it's impossible to find a Shakey's in Colorado, which is why cloning them is a good thing.

(And the Chris Reeves episode came two years later, so they didn't do this one as penance.)

Dude, it J-U-S-T W-A-S-N-T F-U-N-N-Y.

Like I said, I won't even try evaluating whether it promoted fetal stem-cell research, or it ironically ridiculed taht cause. (I tend to think this was promoted FSCR, while the Reeve one had the opposite effect.) But the point is several minutes would pass at a clip without there being one joke.

That episode came before the Reeves episode. At least by a whole season. It was two-fold though. Cartman just wanted the stem cells to make money. Not unlike the California vote.

I can't believe they actually used her name.

As opposed to the Michael Jackson episode where the called him "Mr. Johnson" and his son Prince Micheal II was called "blanket".
