That cartoon is probably one of the greatest compliments Apple could ever have.  I am a bit jealous that South Park thought of it before me.

Fuck that.  Fuck Apple.  Fuck Jobs and his cult of techno dweebs.  Sorry about the potty mouth.

Great way to open the new Southpark Season.

Why is this show still on the air?  This is not even funny.  SP lost its edge somewhere around season 7.

This was the greatest episode!

I disagree. It's been getting better and better especially since season 10.

I love South Park, but that clip was fucking retarded.

i suspect a lot of people are unaware of the reference - there was a horror movie that was actually just released where people were kidnapped and turned into a human centipede

i reckon its fair game to stitch that movie together with apple

just showing how the corporate world can swindle its way into unethical maneuvers with its customers while attempting to show the darkside of technology!

I am glad you brought up the horror movie reference as the majority of people who are offended by this episode do not know about the secondary parody (besides Apple) that South Park is dealing with.

more "ergo" than evil it would appear.

This video has nothing to do with Apple stock.

It is just pure evil.

if you think it is evil cuz of the clip shown above, you should watch the whole episode and report back about how Dr Phil helps eric through his "mom" issue.

Did you hear the whole latest story.

People jail break the iphone and ios.

He goes to court and tries to get a ruling about it. Judge says no you can jailbreak these things.

People start digging around find the tracking routines.

They leak it.

He denies it.

Then people search up the patent he applied for and was granted to track people.

I'm sure the Facebook Twits would actually pay monthly to be tracked...

Ya but it's working against them. They just went on a huge ban fest. Banned a bunch of accounts for posting "copywrited" information. I think they finally figured out making a retard might be all fun and games but living with them afterwards is kind of a bitch.

Yes, Apple pretended to be on the "side" of the consumer, by offering a platform which was less easy to mess up, and more secure right out of the box. They fucked up. And deserve all the intestinal products that the Humancentipad can produce. Right in the mouth.

ANYONE ON A MAC OS MACHINE SHOULD LOOK AT LITTLESNITCH SOFTWARE!

isn't there a fire, or a drought, or a revival, you should be tending to?

He can't reply right now, he's swatting locusts.

Touche....

And somewhere else someone is locating twats...

The Zen of it all is overwhelming at times....

Your kind ain't welcome here, Gunslinger...

DeadFred's picture

Have you not watched Southpark before?  You're surprised at the nature of what todays kids are bombarded with?  You do have a big job cut out for you.

velobabe's picture

you know i have never watched south park, except for clips like this. i don't think it is all that funny, but i am old;-(

chumbawamba's picture

It used to be funny.  Now it's just swimming in its own wake.  South Park is to funny what US T-bills are to investing...of a bygone era.

I am Chumbawamba.

pan-the-ist's picture

Why are you still posting faker?

myshadow's picture

My mother  and brother with his family live in texas, otherwise,

It is just pure evil.

@Texas Gunslinger:

You are by far the funniest troll here.  Your over the top role playing makes my day.  Please keep it up for a while.  Keep in mind however, you're going to need some new material.  Creative trolling requires that your schtick continues to get farther and farther "out there" to remain entertaining.  You have begun on such an outrageous path that I can't wait to see where it goes from here.... If you're any good.  I think you are.

Ned Flanders with attitude.  You're the fucking best, TG.

Please keep it up for a while...

But ... try to sort of subtly ask around the office about what ever happened to Johnny Bravo.

This scene from Planes Trains and Automobiles pretty much sums it up for Texas Gunslinger

I think ZH should have made us all stand in line for 2 hours for the right to watch this video....lol

PenGun's picture

 You need to watch the ending. You will feel much better.

 

 Pure genius.

Pladizow's picture

What will the line outside of an apple store "look like" for this product?

Particularly disgusting on Lincoln Road, South Beach!

Temporalist's picture

That is BS I've seen people on South Beach doing that years ago.

kujo's picture

What?? Weirdest troll ever.

Badabing's picture

I always post on ZH with my iphone through my anis.

Byte Me's picture

What do you recommend if I already watched the whole episode?

Devaluation?

Trepanning?

Watching you take a one spot dirt-nap?

Go jump into the Io flux tube (if you examine my avatar closely...)

Wait until you see Adventuretime with Finn And Jake

Spastica Rex's picture

I wonder how many people saw "The Human Centipede?" Really stupid movie.

Love Southpark!

Temporalist's picture

Coming from someone with some seemingly high intellect, you do watch SP after all, I'm a bit surprised that before you saw that movie you thought it'd be a good idea to watch it.

Over the top, as usual for South Park.
