South Park Season 13, Episode 14: "Pee" - Review

After 13 seasons, South Park is approaching that seasoned age where it's "been there, done that" for pretty much any topic you can think of. But one thing they've always been able to revert back to is toilet humor, that old comedic stand by. But what new ground can you break in potty humor when you've had episodes about crapping through your mouth, and a character that is literally a turd? You move on to rivers of pee, of course!

But before we get to the pee, we have to take a little trip to a side-story involving Cartman's racist tendencies. It starts with "minorities" wearing t-shirts in the wade pool, which leads to one of Cartman's more interesting singing moments with a little ditty called "Too Many Minorities at My Waterpark." The lyrics of this song are truly hilarious, and mildly offensive, as all good South Park humor is. But besides the actual content of the song, Trey Parker's singing in character is actually pretty good, and the music video style (complete with fades, pans, and other music video clichés) is genius. Cartman, being the paranoid racist that he is, eventually comes to the conclusion that the minorities aren't in the minority anymore. He ties it into the Mayan apocalypse in 2012 (which apparently is so important that the History Channel needs to tell me about it every damn day).

The main story is a tad bit different, though still tied into the disaster movie theme. Everybody's peeing in Pi Pi's water park, and the resulting pee mix concentration (the acceptable level of pee in any water park is 83 percent) from all these people causes a chain reaction that results in a pee flood of biblical proportions. The episode turns into an homage to golden showers, racism, and disaster movies. Only South Park could combine all three of those topics and make it work.
