South Park "Shocks" By Including Stingray-Stabbed Steve Irwin In Hell

I didn't see the furor over this coming. Went right past me. It's South Park -- what do people expect?

Another good episode. They've really managed to keep the quality of the show high, despite its long run.

It should be said they didn't mock Irwin, except to the extent they did feature him, dead, and in Hell, with the stingray still stuck through his chest. But he wasn't mocked or denigrated. His death was treated irreverently, but please, everyone I knew was doing that the day after his death.

Like noting how absurd the media coverage was about this being a "freak accident which shocked a nation." The guy built an entire career upon grabbing crocodiles by their hind legs, turning them upside down, and putting their penises into his mouth. (Not a sexual act; an act of love and respect.) There was nothing "freak" about his demise, no more than it's a "freak" death when a professional parachuter dies on a jump.

How the hell did you expect him to die -- slipping in the shower?

To quote the very underrated Troy--

THE KING: "You mock my brother even before he is laid to rest!"

ODYSSEUS: "It is no insult to note that a dead man is, in fact, dead."
