    So I guess you can't put Muhammad in a bear suit. But can a Muslim deity in a bear suit get a cup of coffee in New York? Get Letterman's writers on that one.

    If you're not allowed to have any sort of picture of Muhammed, how do you know what Muhammed looks like?

    This is exactly what they wanted.

    I love that they push the envelope, I just wish the show was as funny as it used to be. I think they're batting about .333 this season.

    Yeah the last episode had a lot of potential, but didn't really deliver.

    As far as the story, the website posted a picture of the Danish guy was murdered by radicals for depicting Muhammed -- but it's not a threat.

    Oh, OK. Well as long as it's not a threat.

    "Probably wind up"? "Likely outcome"? Since when do religious radicals leave wiggle room in their threats?

    All this outrage is way late, anyway. The "Super Best Friends" episode had Muhammad running around undisguised the whole time.

    I tried watching the Facebook episode, but it fell flat.

    I was hoping for the magic of World of Warcraft or Guitar Hero...

    Even more worrysome, they're also on Mike Ditka's list for mocking Da Bears.

    I hope once the radicals finish off the South Park folks, they turn to Family Guy.

    I hope South Park comes back even harder and mocks the Web site.

    I'm guessing they will, if Comedy Central's lawyers let them.

    The Tiger Woods episode was pretty damn funny. I didn't see any death threats on Tiger's web site.

    Maybe it's just me, but I thought this two-parter was pretty good. All of the silly callbacks mocking shows that do silly callbacks for anniversary episodes was a nice touch.

    Also, was the bit with Scott Tenorman supposed to be a reference to the old Batman graphic novel "The Killing Joke"? Seemed like it, with the giant video screens and the two gingers escorting Cartman in the train car.
