24 sends bomb to South Park offices

fake snukeBut not a real bomb, of course.

It seems that the folks behind the show 24 were so honored by the 24 spoof South Park did recently that they sent a faux suitcase nuke to the South Park offices. You can see pictures here. I haven't seen a lot of suitcase nukes in my day, but I'd say that's a pretty good fake snuke.

If you missed the episode, titled "The Snuke," it satirized the intensity, drama and technology at the center of 24 perfectly with Cartman taking on the "Jack Bauer" role and trying to gather information on a new Muslim student he suspects of being a terrorist. As the plot unfolds, we realize it goes much deeper than that. Also, the Queen of England blows her brains out.

This isn't the first time the South Park gang has gotten praise from other shows. They also received a gift from The Simpsons team after they skewered Family Guy in a two-part episode.

What gift did the Simpsons people send them? I don't remember hearing about that.

There is nothing better than a celebrity or television program that is able to laugh at themselves. The mere fact that someone or something is popular enough to parody should be enough praise.

Plus, this was a fantastic episode. My father is a huge "24" fan, who will watch "South Park"'s big episodes, so this was a great episode for him as well as myself.
