You guys are going to think I like South Park. I don’t. I hate it. But my husband loves it. Occasionally, he thinks the episodes are so funny, I’ll forget that I hate it and be rolling on the floor with him in fits of hysterical laughter. While I thought the Jersey episode last week had some humor in it, this was not the case this week. South Park made fun of another show I know – Hoarders – and there I was at midnight being forced to watch it in the style of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange by my husband.
In the opening scene, Stan gets a note from his girlfriend and a visit by Dr. Chinstrap, a hoarding expert, there to help him clean out his locker.
That turns into a meeting with the school guidance counselor. Mr. Mackey is surrounded by stuff, and doesn’t know what hoarding is. “Hoarding, never heard of it m’kay”
In a dream regression Mr. Mackay goes to his childhood. Apparently he and I have a lot in common, m’kay? We both had LiteBrite and we both enjoyed watching Zoom – the original. Do you remember how to get in touch with them? Before email? Because I can sing it in my sleep – and evidently, so can Mr. Mackey. Write Zoom zee double o emm Box 350, Boston, Mass 02134 – send it to Zoom.
The final insults come from Freddy Kruger and Woodsy the Owl. I’m lucky after watching this South Park episode that I don’t have nightmares that need exorcising. I’ll never be able to look back fondly on my memories of Woodsy the Owl again. Poor Mr. Mackey.

Does anyone watch South Park? I mean, those of you with two or more brain cells to rub together?
