OK, I'll admit it, I'm not much of a South Park guy. That being said, I do think it is hysterically funny at times.
I am far from a prude, but something about the raunchy nature of the show, combined with the fact that it is animated (well sort of, it is South Park you know) and the easy accessibility for the younger audience makes me think about how my mother would have reacted to it when I was a kid. I remember how she thought that Laugh In was the dirtiest show she would ever see.
I love you mom, but the world has definitely changed.
So anyways.....I was looking at my Facebook account where I saw that a friend of mine, Alan Randel (http://www.facebook.com/alan.randel) had a birthday today. Happy birthday Alan.
I looked down and a Friend Suggestion was for my 16 year old son, Hunter. So I thought, sure, I'll friend him. Well after a couple of back and forth messages, all that he would tell me is that I needed to go see this South Park video: http://www.southparkstudios.com/episodes/267112/.
Needless to say, he is a HUGE South Park fan! I also go the point.
I was always told that you had to be a parent first and not be friends with your children. But seriously, that's not what I thought they meant.
If you want to be MY FRIEND on Facebook, I'm at http://www.facebook.com/raymond.raffety.
