    Excerpt:
    "Like the NBA, we welcome the Chinese censors into our homes and into our hearts,” the statement reads, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “We too love money more than freedom and democracy. [President] Xi [Jinping] doesn’t look like Winnie the Pooh at all. Tune in to our 300th episode this Wednesday at 10! Long live the great Communist Party of China. May the autumn’s sorghum harvest be bountiful. We good now, China?"

    I don't know if I.D.I.O.T. but South Park still knocking it out after all these years.

    I agree, but it was too good to pass up and didn't want to litter the GARM with non-GARM discussions like so many others.

    The last episode on China was pretty epic. It's been forever since I watched South Park (and I originally started with the Spirit of Christmas). Not surprisingly, they came out and apologized in the only way they know how :D

    This is what Free Speech looks like. I'm looking at you, China.
