"South Park" Elections for Class President
You know it would take something of monumental importance for me to come out of my cocoon, not to mention my money-making commitments and watching the Olympics, but monumental this is.
"South Park," the adult animated show, is holding elections for class president of the fourth grade. We're talking serious, people. Right now it's neck and neck between Butters and Cartman. I'm campaigning big time for Butters. I want to see what happens when genuinely sweet litte Butters gets absolute power and is absolutely corrupte. Plus things are URGENT! The last day of voting is tomorrow, Tuesday 8-24-04, until midnight in your time zone, if I have that last part correct. Check the www.comedycentral.com site about the end time for voting. That is, if you give a boogar.
DIRECTIONS FOR VOTING
Go to the following URL
Scroll down to the picture of BUTTERS! --seventh picture down--and click VOTE under his picture.
If you have problems with the above URL, go to
click on the show "South Park" and follow the directions for voiting. Remember, 12:00am midnight 8-24-04 is when voting closes down and your last chance to affect who will be class president of South Park Elemntary's Fourth Grade. Bush and Kerry, pfft! The outcome of Butters vs. Cartman will affect all aspects of the universe!
VOTE NOW!! VOTE BUTTERS!!!!
Warning to Those Unfamiliar with "South Park": If you don't like the way the majority of third- and fourth-grade boys really and truly talk and what they realy and truly do when they're just around each other, that is gross and potty mouthed, don't watch "South Park." But if you're into Isaac Hayes of "Shaft" fame doing the voice of Chef, the school cafeteria cook and South Park's love machine, and love gross, potty-mouth humor of the hightest quality, then check your local listings for "South Park" on Comedy Central. EST it's on at 9:30pm weeknights except Thursdays; two shows Wednsedays; and I think 11pm on Sat and Sundays--but don't trust me.:D
You can only vote once a day. So if you vote for Butters today, you can also vote tomorrow. What kind of election is that, where you can only vote twice?!
Red rover red rover send RGirl right over!!! We have missed you. The Olympics threads are in desparate need of the RGirl point of view. If you come out and play we promise to play nice......... naaa what fun would THAT be :D ?

Well, if you include a bottle of sour mash that would be called politics as usual in Southern West Virginia. BTW you can also vote there if you are dead.

I still think I'll have to vote for Cartman though. Butters running amok with power is a good concept, but Cartman taking over the 4th grade dictator style is priceless.
FYI, Cartman is winning at 33%
But Butters is second, at 22%.
Awww...thanks all of you who welcomed me back. Kewl.
The South Park voting is over so it doesn't matter what I say, but since when has that stopped me in the past?
Mpal, here's my rationale for wanting Butters to win--not that it matters since the Cartman campaign (no doubt rigged) seens to have come in first. The official announcement of the winner will be August 30th. Here's the deal: I want to make the week of class president episodes hard as heck for the writers, Trey Parker and Matt Stone (BTW, I want to BE Trey Parker; I think Trey is a complete and total genius; he turned doodles during class about 3rd graders into a multimillion dollar subtley pornographic empire enterntainment; TP rules, totally). Anyway, writing scripts with Cartman as the Hitlerian 4th grade class president will be a walk in the park for T&M. Not that they wouldn't be great, but they've done "Cartman Rules the World" scripts plenty of times before. Just as an example, how easy would it be for T&M to let the power and chaos of a situation, for example, like Viet Nam throw Cartman into an endless eating binge of pancakes and powdered donuts until his body becomes an environmental disaster?
OTOH, to make Trey and Matt use Butters as class president, someome genuinely genuine but with a deep down sense of the true nature of the evil of the world. would be a real challenge for T&M. Does Butters start having quickies with every "Raisins" waitress in South Park a la JFK, one of whom is also the mistress of the South Park mafia Godfather, Saddam, and, as well as its cult leader, Osama Bin Laden? If Cartman can do what he did to Kenny Tenorman on just a regular show, even if it was voted the #1 Most Outrageous South Park episode out of the top 25, with the powers of class president it won't be a matter of how far T&M can go with what they do with Butters but how much T&M can do to get past the censors. With Butters as class president, it would kind of be like Fredo being Godfather.
Having said that, since it looks like Cartman is going to win (although T&M can always do a recount along the lines of Florida, 2000, but of course the outcome will be whatever they want), T&M could make their series of Cartman as class president scripts their piece de resistance. All I know is so far on almost every South Park, every time I think they've made their final weenie little statement, there's a beat as if, "Yep, we're all buying this," until one of them comes out with something so outrageous that I have to wear Depends every time I watch the show, even reruns I've seen 20 times before. This is where aspirations of great literature will getcha.
P.S. Thanks, Piel. Will get over to the Olympics soon. Oh, those male gymnasts, divers, and swimmmers--oh, baby!--not to mention almost ever guy in track and fieldAm anxious to see what people are saying about Svetlana Khorkina.:D
It is great to see you back, RGirl. An Olympic judging controversy just isn't the same without you! And, I didn't know you enjoyed "South Park". It is one of my favorite shows. Just one more reason to like you! :D
Mpal, I struggled with that myself. True, Cartman will get Scott Tenorman to unknowingly murder and consume his parents in the South Park Chili Contest just to get back at him for selling Cartman six bucks worth of pubes, while the best Butters will come up with is, after Cartman has blown all the money they made being a Christian rock group just so he could get back at Kyle, which of course blew up in his face, was for Butters to wring his hands for a few seconds to get up the courage to walk up to the beaten-to-a-pulp Cartman and fart on him. So indeed, I get your point. But Butters is only deceptively cute and bumbling all the time. Remember the "Raisins" show when Butters fell in love with the skanky waitress at the South Park 4th grade version of "Hooters"? When she of course dumped him, telling him she never even knew his name, Butters was found crying under the same street lamp Stan was before he went Goth. The Goths invited Butters to hand out with them, but Butters gave a typically Butters rational that he'd rather feel this bad because it meant that he only felt this bad because he'd felt so good. So just as you think Butters is going to wander home being Capraesque cute, he adds, "And thanks for inviting me to join your clique you guys, but I'd rather be a cryin' little pussy than a bunch of faggy Goth kids." BAM! Right in the nuts! Anyway, that's the gauntlet I personally would like to lay at the feet of Trey and Matt. Get those Butters knock-you-on-your-butt comments when you least expect them; have him be cute and bumbling AND corrupted by power at the same time. Cartman writes himself, but Butters is a real challenge. JMO. Besides, I'm sure they've got the scripts already written anyway and they'll just stick whoever wins into them with minor adjustments for character.

I forgot about the Goth episode and Butters last comment. How true. Maybe a sadist does reside in him after all. He did come up with an evil super genius alter ego at one point. It may not have worked as planned, but the seeds have been planted.
