La Muerte Peluda!

In the late '90's, several of us would gather in a friend's living room and watch this new show called South Park. It was hilarious and we loved that in one single episode, every single one of us could be mocked based on cultural background, religion, physical differences, etc. Equal opportunity offenders and a refreshing change from political correctness.

The host of these get-togethers moved out of the country, other got married and/or had babies, and one certain bleached blond cousin was never seen or heard from again. Basically, we all got busy. It was fun while it lasted.

All these many years later, South Park is still on the air with original episodes. We rarely watch these days, but often record it--just in case. E watches more than I do and called me into the den a few nights ago with a "You have GOT to see this!" OMG...the timing couldn't be more perfect and the absurdity. The episode "Pandemic" ended up being an homage to Cloverfield with the monster(s) being....GUINEA PIGS! Live action guinea pigs at that! Having just adopted one ourselves, it was extra hilarious.



It only got better, as this week "Pandemic 2" aired. If you enjoy guinea pigs in costumes (!), you might just want to check out the entire episode, which is online now. "Pandemic" will not be available until November 22nd.



In the spirit of this unbelievable funniness, I created my own Guinea Pirate:

Guinea Pirate!
Penny the Pirate

I was in Alaska when South Park came out and we didn't get Comedy Central up there. I had to watch it once a week in a bar that made a bootleg recording of it off of satellite TV.

Also, cute pirate :)
