South Park has been on television since 1997 and during its impressive run it has never been afraid to take on a topic, satirize it, skewer it, put it on the grill and burn the hell out of it. While some may feel that the show has lost its edge over the years, there are still plenty of episodes each season that are dead on with their special brand of commentary on a variety of issues. Last night's episode was one of those, as South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone decided to take on the NCAA.
Sure, comparing student athletes to crack babies may not be the obvious choice, but then it wouldn't be South Park, would it? Besides, as you'll see in the video below, the crack babies were only a device to get to the real point of the story.
At least at the end of the episode, the crack babies got their very own orphanage -- thanks, Slash! -- but I guess we'll just have to wait and see what student athletes get.
