“South Park” Doesn’t Abstain

cartman_l“South Park” started a new season last night, and all is right with the world. The amusing premiere took on the Jonas Brothers. (Can’t believe it took the show so long to do so.) Invoking the time-honored power of rock music to inspire feelings of adolescent lust, the 13-season opener found Kenny with his first girlfriend, Tammy, a Jonas fan who was moved to perform certain sexual acts in thrall to Jonas-music, until the noble band convinced her and legions of other fans to wear purity rings and abstain. “South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are absolutely right to take on the “let’s wait” hypocrisy that pervades the culture right now — not just the Jonai but the whole “Twilight” series.
