jacoby, the fact that you're so defensive about this demonstrates the lack of a sense of humour.

and south park tends to draw in an audience of 8-14yr olds. how many kids that age understand the satirical undertones of the show? they just like to hear cartoons swear. i'm making a generalistion here but i think it's a fairly valid one.

as for the WB show, it merely suggested the american audience's inability to understand subtle humour directed at themselves. on the surface it was a silly and pointless show, which is probably what most of the audience thought - hence cancellation. i know that over in australia the show was a big hit.

and yes, mandy's comment was classic.
