Book Description

If you think Saddam and Satan are a kinky couple, wait ?til you get a load of South Park and Philosophy. Like Mr. Hanky at Christmas, this is a book whose time has come. On the cheesy poof-stained pages within, 22 philosophers address perennial questions such as, Is Dan Rather real? Should Big Gay Al be allowed to marry Mr. Slave? And, of course, what does philosophy have to do with flatulence? M?kay. Current concerns are also considered. Are American voters inevitably forced to choose between a turd and a douche? Does South Park?s blasphemous humor go too far? If it?s OK to ridicule Islam, is it OK to skewer Scientology? How does Cartmanland raise the problem of evil?

If you like Chef?s salty balls, you?ll love this book?unless of course you?re a damn hippie. In which case, you go to hell? you go to hell and you die! So get your Big Wheels ready and, whether you?ve got one or four assess, we?re goin? for a ride!If you think Saddam and Satan make a kinky couple, wait lsquo;til you get a load of South Park and Philosophy. Get your Big Wheels ready, because wersquo;re going for a ride as twenty-two philosophers take us down the road to understanding the big picture issues in this small mountain town. Is Dan Rather real? Should Big Gay Al be allowed to marry Mr. Slave? What does philosophy have to do with flatulence? Addressing the perennial questions of the show, and looking at the contemporary social and political issues that inspire each episode, this book unravels everything that might be wrong and could be right about South Park. Are American voters inevitably forced to choose between a turd and a douche? Does South Parkrsquo;s blasphemous humor go too far? If itrsquo;s OK to ridicule Islam, is it OK to skewer Scientology? And how does Cartmanland present the problem of evil? Grab a bag of cheesy-poofs and take a seat, because yoursquo;re about to find out. South Park and Philosophy is a smart and candid look at one of televisions most subversive and controversial shows. If you like Chefrsquo;s salty balls, yoursquo;ll love this book.
