Emmanuel Lewis Uses His ("F") Words on 'South Park' (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Nov 5th 2009 10:57AM
On 'South Park,' Eric Cartman and the boys take on a gang of obnoxiously loud bikers disturbing the peace in their Colorado town. Here, Cartman uses a choice selection of pointed language to systematically dismantle the biker gang's macho self-image.

In last night's episode, the 'South Park' kids take it upon themselves to make a homosexual slur publicly acceptable when used to refer to hog-riding gang members like those who invade their town. Lending assistance in their effort to redefine this objectionable "F" word is a doppelganger of 'Webster' star Emmanuel Lewis, who appears as a dictionary editor.

Watch the video after the jump.

80's sitcom intros that now look like self-parodies - VIDEO

small wonderIt goes without saying that television from the 80's - as a decade - tends to stand on its own as having provided some of the oddest junk we may ever see: the glorification of cat-fights (see: Dynasty), the existence of Twin Peaks, and an alien as the star of his own sitcom (see: Tony Danza Alf).

Of course, classically cheesy schmaltz like Dancing With The Stars and American Idol continues to thrive, keeping viewers fastened to their couches amid every note sung or dance move executed by someone in a fedora or boa, respectively.

Sometimes it's really dangerous to try to recreate something you've seen on television. Can you imagine trying to fly like Nathan on Heroes or trying to be an overweight guy who marries a really hot woman like on all of the sitcoms? Dangerous! We've already seen a bunch of kids injured by trying to copy stunts on Jackass and Punk'd.

But some recreations aren't that dangerous, especially if you do them inside. Mena Trott over at the Dollar Short blog decided to see if she could attach balloons to her young daughter and have her float in the air, a la Webster in the opening credits of the 80s ABC sitcom. The result? Well, turns out you can't put a bunch of balloons on a child or a small person (or a dog) and make them float in the air.
