South Park—which, despite its crude content and cruder animation, is somehow one of the longest running shows on television—used to be a lot funnier. In recent years it’s become too self-referential and developed a creativity-stifling obsession with being “topical.” That said, they still toss out the occasional gut-busting gem. To wit: “Gay Fish,” a music video featuring Kanye West, the self-proclaimed “voice of his generation,” spreading his fins as an icthyosexual. Whether you view it as an isolated bit of randomness or in the context of the whole episode (where it’s still pretty random), this ditty is guaranteed to make you smile and perhaps even guffaw, provided you leave your politically correct outrage pants in the drawer.
