While we generally bemoan the adolescent use of the homosexual label as an insult and would like nothing better than to see it disappear from our national lexicon, last night's South Park episode, "The F Word" was spot on. Entirely dedicated to mocking
piratesHarley riders, the show at one point sees Eric Cartman consume four entire buckets of KFC chicken, then defecate on the seats of a group of Harleys, thereby creating the perfect holder for a little flag that says "You're Fags!" which he places on each bike. The episode concludes with the above alteration to the dictionary definition of "Fag." You can watch the entire episode at South Park Studios.
Update: The New York Times is covering the controversy this episode has stirred up among gay advocacy groups.
Thanks for the tip, Ben.
