South Park Reveiw – Whale Whores

October 30, 2009 Leave a comment

The new South Park episode last night was one of the funniest I have seen in recent times. The episode, Whale Whores which you can watch here. Is about the Japanese and a sudden hate for dolphins and  whales. It sparks some of the funniest cameos which mostly because I’ve been watching Deadliest Catch and those other big boat shows lately. The cameos include:

  • Deadliest Catch
  • Lady Gaga
  • Whale Wars

The episode centers around Stan taking up pirating to stop the Japanese from killing whales and dolphins. However when he joins the crew of the show Whale Wars, he finds that their methods aren’t quite as “Effective”. There’s one hilarious part right before Stan goes off to join the crew when Cartman, Kyle, and Kenny are all sitting around playing Rock Band and Cartman is singing Lady Gaga’s song, Poker Face. As he wails into the background while Stan pleads his friends to help him fight the Japanese and become pirates…Cartman then turns the song around at Stan.

As Stan joins the Crew, he notices that their methods of pirating are to throw stinking butter, while the Japanese have machine guns and spears. He pulls out a flare gun and starts World War 3. After a while of pirating Cartman and Kenny decide they want to be on tv and start helping Stan against the Japanese. Afterwords and promptly their boat blows up and they are captured by the Japanese and taken into a prison. A Japanese official then explains a dark secret about the bombing on Hiroshima which explains their hatred for whales and dolphins.

Stan then tells them the truth and the Japanese redirect their hatred and start killing thousands of cows and chickens just like normal Americans.

To sum it all up South Park is targeting

  • PETA
  • Big Boat Shows
  • Lady Gaga
  • World War 2
  • Sea World

In one of the most hilariously and entertainingly funny satires.  Trey Parker and Matt Stone truly are the comedic satirists of the 21st century. They are Mark Twain’s in a very controversial and philosophical sense.
