South Park is easily one of my top five favorite shows of all time. Show creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are smart dudes with an often acerbic views of contemporary culture. Tonight the boys from Colorado turn their attention to saving the whales and dolphins from the Japanese, referencing the annual dolphin slaughter in Taiji, Japan, featured in the movie The Cove.
This isn't the first time they've worked to save the whales. In Free Willzyx they smuggled an orca whale out of Sea Park in Denver and sent it into space attached to a rocket ship (it's a long story and an excellent episode, watch it if you have a little time).
Thanks to Karl for sharing this one with me.
