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!

to look at the world through the eyes of cartman, kyle, stan, and kenny takes more knowledge then most have. you have to be fluent in the language of south park and slept through philosophy 101 in college. if you were awake you might have been able to write a chapter...a great bed time read...thats if you can sleep with all those underpants gnomes scurrying around

not what I was expecting
this is not a book about south park! It is a book about greek philosophy with the occasional nod to subjects that southpark has covered. This is a very hard listen due to the subject matter being discussed. I found it almost impossible to keep up with the pace at which complicated topics were being brushed over by a fast paced read. I struggled to remain engaged and often found myself lost in chapters without much of a clue about what was being presented to me.
