'Reverse Cowgirl' is Proper Toilet Etiquette

Season 16 Starts Off With a Big Flush

Season 16 of South Park started this week with a lot of toilet humor...literally. The first episode "Reverse Cowgirl" gives us more toilet flushing jokes than I think we have ever seen on the show.

The episode starts off with Clyde being scolded by his mother for leaving the toilet seat up. She tells him time and time again that he has to put it down, or she'll end up with toilet water on her...erm...lady parts. Cartman witnesses this and proceeds to tell all of the kids at school. Still, Clyde forgets to put the seat down on yet another occasion.

This time, Clyde's mom is not so lucky. She didn't realize the seat was up and fell in. By the time Clyde gets to the bathroom, his mom is in bad shape. She finally tells the paramedics that she's ready for the suffering to end. They flush the toilet, in turn ripping out all of her vital organs. Clyde is responsible for his mother's death.

Now the government must step in to make sure that toilets are used safely. The Toilet Safety Association is formed to make sure that all users know how to be safe while dropping a deuce. The "TSA" visually inspects all incoming bottoms before they are allowed to use the toilet. When they install a security camera, all users are assured that only one person, in an undisclosed location, could see them. Of course, this TSA worker is shown with a bottle of hand lotion while he is watching the closed circuit feeds.

On the other side of town, the boys decide to sue the inventor of the toilet, John Harrington, who has been dead for centuries. You can only sue the dead through a "sue-ance."

As the story unfolds, we soon learn that we have all been using the toilet incorrectly. It was invented to be ridden "reverse cowgirl." Ironically enough, Butters was the only person in South Park who always went to the bathroom in this position.

So there we have it - an episode full of TSA attacks, money-hungry lawyers, and puns about sex positions. Not the funniest episode ever, but certainly a fun way to start off the season. Be careful not to fall in the next time you need to drop the kids off at the pool.
