Because it rocks, you BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP BLEEP [1] and if it wasn't for

Well, I can't speak for anyone but myself, but IMO South Park has always
and continues to ultimately be about shooting the finger at the censors
and other folks who would be a "moral compass" for our society. I'm not
lost, I don't *need* or *want* a compass. By pushing the envelope and
intentionally (and yes, *very* effectively!) tormenting those kinds of
folks, Trey and Matt serve a cause that I definitely favor. Hence, my
$6.75 goes to funding that cause. In fact, now that I'm viewing this in
an activist sense rather than just as a damn funny movie, I think maybe
I'll go back and see it again. Maybe several times. ;-)

"Cause, like, those censor people... it's like, you go in a room,
and there's all these
crusty old fuckers sitting around, going, like, 'uhhhhhhhhhhh...'
And like another thing
is, is like, none of them ever rocked in their lives."
