I guess it was just a matter of time. But it seems that Matt Stone and Trey Parker, creators of South Park, have finally decided to include a Game of Thrones pop-culture reference into their show. Despite how low-brow the humor can get, and an overabundance of toilet humor, I’ve always been drawn back to this show because of it’s ability to stay current.
In fact, after reviewing the whole of season 14, in which they mocked all the crap Jersey reality TV, cooking shows, the shake-weight, Tiger Woods, “sex addiction”, Nascar, Facebook, and BP, I became convinced that the show a certain hidden genius to it, like it was one of the most relevant sources of pop culture mockery and satire available to viewing audiences. Yeah, that impression kinda wore off…
In any case, I’m just glad they threw out some GOT references for all the geeks out there! Watch the clip, it’s quite funny if you’ve read the books or follow the series:

awwww I love SP! Though I admit I haven’t watched it regularly in years…mainly due to their toilet humor and the fact I’m not just a high on any more. But I still think they’re masters of satire and one of the most relevant sources of mockery on today’s culture. If you’ve found someone better, I’d love to hear it.
I wouldn’t mind finding a new show to be a fan of.
Maybe Futurama, but that’d be the closest ever since Family Guy ceased being funny and Simpsons decided to keep running despite having jumped the shark years ago.
Can”t say I’ve ever been a fan of Futurama, or Family Guy either for that matter.
And that’s why I still love SP 🙂
I love South Park!
George R.R. Martin must be rolling in it. A hit TV series, a Simpsons spoof, and now….South Park.
He’s like a literary rock star.
