I think South Park is funny and clever 9 times out of 10. What bothers me about it now is that it seems to go so far out of it's way to be topical and relevant. I miss some of the older episodes where shit just happened and it was inexplicable but still damn funny. Like the original Barbara Streisand episode with the all that triangle shit and the guy from The Cure morphing into a giant moth. Topical or sensical? No. Hilarious, yes.
Then again I assume the writers do a lot less drugs then they used to.
