If you think Saddam and Satan are a kinky couple, wait til you get a load of South Park and Philosophy. Like Mr. Hanky at Christmas, this is a book whose time has come. Twenty-two philosophers here address such perennial questions as, "Is Dan Rather real?" "Should Big Gay Al be allowed to marry Mr. Slave?" And, of course, "What does philosophy have to do with flatulence?" M'kay?
Current concerns are also considered. Are American voters inevitably forced to choose between a turd and a douche? Does South Park's blasphemous humor go too far? If its okay to ridicule Islam, is it okay to skewer Scientology? How does Cartmanland raise the problem of evil?
If you like Chef's salty balls, you'll love this book - unless of course you're a damn hippie. In which case, you go to hell, you go to hell, and you die! So get your Big Wheels ready and, whether you've got one or four asses, were going for a ride!
"Twenty-two philosophers can’t be wrong. Here to confirm suspicions that a relevant subtext exists beneath the potty-mouthed facade of Comedy Central’s “South Park” (now in its 10th season) is this indispensable collection of thought-provoking essays." (Boston Herald)
