You’ll probably soon know someone who is. South Park recently returned for a fourteenth season, and has already poked fun at Tiger Woods, Sarah Jessica Parker, and the book Catcher In The Rye. This week it finally set it’s sight on social networking site Facebook in an episode called You Have 0 Friends. As the boys attempt to outdo each other, Kyle adds the lonely Kip Drordy to his Facebook friends. A person known to everyone on the site for having zero friends.

The show returned for an extended second season last month in the US. At the time of writing this I can’t find any firm details as to when it’ll show in the UK. I discovered the
The thirteenth season of South Park drew to a close last week on Comedy Central with an episode simply titled Pee. The world is flooded in typical armageddon style destruction by a giant wave of, err, pee. We see the Statue Of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower are destroyed (again), as is poor little Kenny. Still probably the best show on television, the thirteenth run has been another good one. It opened with a brutal shot at Disney and the Jonas Brothers in The Ring. You instantly knew theyâ€™d lost none of their bite. And you may never look at
