LesserEvil: I doubt they've ever seen this idiot's garbage.

Here's a trailer

Yes, it is awful. It isn't a cartoon, but some sort of church play. This guy established his "lollipopforest" YouTube channel in 2006, which predates the South Park Episode... but "Lollipop Forest" is, itself, stolen from the "Oz" series of children's books,


I actually assumed it was a Candy Land reference, although I don't think the game ever explicitly names a Lollipop King

A base is something on which, or, (even better) upon which, other things rest. Nothing can be "based off" anything. If you are trying to evoke "copied off of", or some other oddball speech, please don't. Just say "based on", or "based upon" and spare the poor, crapped-upon English language the brunt of your culture.

English is a living language. Study it out.


The sort of linguistic commensalism at play here is not conducive to a once-beautiful language "living", yo. Closer to the truth is that the life is slowly being derped out of it.

Don't correct him like he's a babby when you missed the joke.

That was a joke? Oh, ha ha, good one. You're very funny.


It was expected yet still amusing.

You must be a blast at parties.

That was truly horrible.

Years ago, I remember reading an interview with the guys where they said they were going to quit South Park shortly because they wouldn't want to be doing it years from now (paraphrased).

After watching the documentary "Six days to air" on Netflix, I have even more respect for the guys keeping the series going. I always assumed that they kept the show going because it was a paycheck and why not? After seeing the documentary, I wondered if they keep it going because they're keeping a number of people employed to make it happen.

While I haven't been a huge fan of all episodes, I appreciate the satire and parody that goes into each one. That they can "crap out" an episode in six days is amazing to me. Keep it coming, guys.

And James Brown's widow should sue that guy for using "I feel good" and use different word to it.

Nope. English has pretty much always been a bottom up, open source tongue. That is the beautiful thing about it. Its rules enables the easy adoption of new words and grammar as the people who speak it change. Attempts to formalize it have resulted in the nonsensical and ugly structures that are found when you don't end sentences with prepositions or won't split an infinitive.

This is only in relation to the five years after it aired comment, I don't know the story and I don't really care. That part of it annoyed me.

We are not locked into to one specific experience. Just because 20 million people have seen something, what does that matter? It's funny because when something reaches an audience of that many people, it's hard to imagine who isn't watching it rather than who is. Especially if the people around you are all(or some) a part of the audience. That becomes the normality in the eyes of the subject, no? It's difficult to remove your experience from the experience of others. You know that there are people out there that don't have what you have or see what you see - but you don't see them or interact with them (and vice versa) so they aren't a tangible. Until you come across them, like in this article, and their foreignness becomes apparent.

I guess I'm asking you this: Why do I have to know something you know, when you know it, just because you know it then? Because I didn't know about this. Never heard of it until now. (And it isn't to say I don't enjoy entertainment media or have never laughed at South Park) I might say this would be different if it came to a matter of importance or education but this is after all South Park.

That's it. Just wanted to say that.
