The geniuses behind South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, have set their sights on a new group of people to offend: Mormons. The duo will work with one of the creators of Avenue Q to produce a Broadway music based on the lives and loves of the religious group, set to run in 2009. The title? Mormon Musical.
Broadway heartthrob Cheyenne Jackson is already booked to star in the show, which he describes in the most predictable way possible: "It offends everybody but does what South Park does best, which is by the end it comes around and has something great to say."
Aaaaaaand here come the trolls.
Mormons aren't a new target for the duo, just watch 1997's Orgazmo for example.
I was just about to say that. But you already did. So never mind.
they also had a very funny ep of South Park on the Mormons.
"Dumb dumb dumb dumb dumb!"
Halfway on topic: If anyone has had to watch High School Musical because of the kids they love, I highly recommend the latest High School Musical episode of South Park.
"I will slap you so super hard!"
Cannibal: The Musical immediately sprang to mind.
sar, even better was when his kid punched him out.
sw - I LOVED that moment. I actually had a moment like that with my own father (overshare alert!!!!) so it kicked ass for me.
You know what would be even funnier than making fun of Mormons? Making fun of Jews! And maybe then we should send everyone with different beliefs or any beliefs at all, to concentration camps, give them showers, then incinerate the evidence! Who's on board?
Seriously, those guys from South Park are going to hell.
and even better that THAT was when the mom/wife punched him twice.
Mary, to be fair, they make fun of EVERYBODY.
And Cartman makes fun of Kyle's "jewishness" on EVERY episode.
slapping you slapping you because you disrespected me! LOL I usually don't think violence against women funny but at the end she got her revenge.
Mary, fo real, have you not seen the episode where they build a ladder to Heaven? They look around the clouds and wonder why they can't find their dearly departed friend, Kenny. Then Cartman says, "Maybe we can't see Heaven because one of us is a J-O-O."
Comic gold, I hope I sit at their lunch table in hell!
