Dog not offended by South Park parody

If you missed the Dog the Bounty Hunter special, Year of the Dog on A&E last night, don't worry, because you didn't miss much, especially if you had been watching the last season and keeping up with the news on Duane "Dog" Chapman's recent arrest stemming from his capture of Andrew Luster. The special was pretty much a recap of the last year in the life of the Chapmans: a roller coaster that included deaths, births, Dog's marriage to Beth, and the aforementioned arrest.In the midst of all this, South Park did a brutal and quite accurate of parody of Dog and his crew in the episode Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy. Cartman takes on the persona and fashion sense of Dog when he becomes hallway monitor, taking his limited authority much further than he should. Dog himself said he loved being "roasted" by South Park, and Beth, who was portrayed as a woman whose breasts are so huge they obscure her face, also thought the episode was funny. Considering South Park never goes after any target lightly, I have to give Dog and Beth credit for being able to laugh at themselves.
