If you are over the age of 30, don’t live with your parents, and are not in the lowest tax bracket, you probably don’t watch South Park. In that case, let me fill you in.
South Park is a cartoon on Comedy Central that pokes fun at everything from Hollywood to politics and religion. However, last night’s episode may have put the guys of South Park on a whole new level. The episode was about a genius joke involving eating “fish sticks” and becoming a gay fish. Get it? If you put fish sticks in your mouth, you are a gay fish. Ehhhhhh?
Know who doesn’t get the joke? Kanye West. Is anybody really shocked that the rapper turned entrepreneur, turned fashion designer, turned used car salesmen doesn’t get it? In the episode, Kanye West is highly offended that everyone calls him a “gay fish,” and he doesn’t understand why this is funny. Kanye goes on a violent adventure (poor Carlos Mencia) to find the person responsible for starting such a foul rumor about him. The episode ends with Kanye still not getting the joke, but realizing that he is, in fact, a gay fish. He then sets off into the ocean to make love in auto tune to the other homosexual fish of the sea.
Even though the South Park Kanye West didn’t think the joke was funny, the real life Kanye West did. Just when we think the hot-headed rapper is going to let loose on South Park and unleash a record setting rant, he was humble in his blog. He said (in all caps) “I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I’M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I’M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I’M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTH PARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE.” Kanye even put a clip from the episode into his blog. Check it out:
