Warning!! The following video is offensive, immature, blastphomous, and contains potty language.
When I first saw this, I have so say I was rolling on the floor laughing. It is nearly impossible to offend me, and this little cartoon certainly didn’t. Neither did the hundreds of other cartoons that Matt Stone and Trey Parker came up with, forming the series South Park on Comedy Central. New episodes are still being produced today.
This first one in particular though invoked the true spirit of the holiday season for me, which is to laugh, be joyful, resolve differences, be generous, and be kind. If you can get past the language, and the in your face offensive nature of this cartoon, all of what I just spoke of is in there.
Now I am not going to make this a really long blog post, as I will let the cartoon stand on it’s own, but I did want to make a couple of comments which were inspired by Doobster418 and a post he made in his mindfuldigressions blog.
1) What is today called Christmas has been celebrated long before the birth of Christ, which by the way is an estimate itself.
2) It has been celebrated by many cultures at this time of year as a worship the sun. Think about it. If the days have been getting shorter and shorter, you might want to start praying to the Sun God, and looky there, it’s working since the days are getting longer again. Hmmm… So if I pray to a Son God, oh sorry, I mean Sun God, the Son is resurrected, oh sorry the sun starts to come back and the days get longer? I’d better do that then.
3) You know, it’s a good time to “Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas, make the YULETIDE (Pagan holiday) gay.” Since there are no crops to tend to because it’s so freaking cold outside.
I’m truly not trying to destroy the “Spirit of Christmas” or anyone’s faith. I’m simply stating my opinion, which by the way comes from opening a few books, including the New Testament and many others.
So watch the cartoon. Don’t be offended, just laugh. And feel the spirit of the holiday season permeate your heart and soul, and maybe warm you up a bit too because it’s freakin’ cold out there!
