Next Week's South Park Should Be Fun...

If it actually airs, that is–The Officers’ Club writes that South Park is about to air those cartoons, if Viacom doesn’t get the willies first:

From what I could gather from the cliffhanger ending [of this week’s episode], South Park creators Matt Parker and Trey Stone have forced Comedy Central to stand at the same crossroads that hundreds of newspapers and periodicals across America stood at not a month ago. Next week they will guest star Mohammed in all of his animated glory, and they have let Muslims know in advance that it’s a-coming.

Comedy Central has a choice. They can either stand by their longtime stars in Parker and Stone, or succumb to cheap threats from petty thugs. Should Comedy Central make a decision endorsed by the First Amendment, I will be glued to my tv next Wednesday at 10pm.

Over to you, Sumner Redstone!
