Why wouldn't you like South Park?

Why do you like South Park? I have been asked this question several times, usually by people who just don’t get South Park humor. People often expect a simple answer yet my answer never seems to be simple.

I have to start with the characters. South Park’s creators have managed to create a vast character list, all of which contrast one another. They give you the angry selfish kid, Cartman. They also have a conscious driven Kyle, the caring philosophical chef, the South Park teacher Mr. Garrison who had a sex change and became Janet Garrison only to find out that she now liked girls and therefore had yet another sex change. Really I can go on and on with the characters alone.

South Park is much more than just their character list. They have had an endless supply of trouble that emerges from one show to the next. They have had to fight off rival towns, they have had to battle Mongolians and they have even had more than their share of run-ins with Satan himself. Their battles aren’t the only thing they’ve had to overcome, there’s more, so much more.

South Park has also had to fight sexual predators, mad scientists and addiction. They’ve actually had more than their share of addiction problems. They’ve had to come together and battle pot smoking, heroin and even the addiction to cat pee, a powerful hallucinogenic.

This is only a sampling of the many reason’s to like South Park. Millions tune in to watch every new episode like clockwork. In the off season South Park fans entertain themselves with past episodes that never seem to get old no matter how many times they are viewed.
