Last night’s episode of South Park really hit home with me, as it tackles an issue that’s near and dear to me: The dangers of leaving the toilet seat up.
In the episode, titled “Reverse Cowboy,” Clyde, one of the gang’s schoolmates, keeps forgetting to put the toilet seat down, which brings upon the wrath of his angered mother. One day, Clyde’s irresponsible behavior leads to a horrible tragedy that will forever change the way the people of South Park go to the bathroom.
You can watch clips from the episode here below; the first one has Clyde being reprimanded by his mother; the other shows the tragedy that happens afterward – think Signs.
After all these years of South Park, it’s hard to believe this is the first time an episode has been devoted to showing the dangers of leaving the toilet seat up and the fierce debate about it between men and women. Me? Forget the seat, I go nuts if the lid isn’t down, as my nephews and nieces can attest. I’m the crazy lady pointing to the toilet, yelling, “The toilet!!!!!” whenever the seat and/or lid is left up. (Matter of fact, one of my nieces text messaged me to say she was thinking of me while watching the episode!)
Definitely take the 20 minutes or so to watch the full episode online. Everything about this episode is pure awesomeness.
Oh Geez, That’s Embarrassing
