Why South Park is Relevant

A Wichita dance-off between two dance troupes turned violent two days ago, according to an AP article via Wired News:

When the challengers appeared to be losing, a woman struck a 17-year-old Dynamic Steppers drummer in the face with a drumstick, Easter said.

The teen, who had left the White Tigers to join the Dynamic Steppers, punched the 28-year-old woman in the face. He then ran toward his Ford Explorer and tried to run over spectators, witnesses told police.

No word yet on if any flying tap shoes were involved. Also, “Dynamic Steppers and White Tigers” just doesn’t have the same ring to it as “Crips and Bloods” or “Jets and Sharks.”

Hat-tip goes to former OC Publisher Bret Jacobson.

    South Park is quite relevant. I point you to this episode, which spoofs the (if you can call it a) film “You Got Served” and myriad other “dance-off” themed films. Bryan, consider thyself served.

    I’m unsure how South Park’s relevance is relevant to this story– maybe there’s an episode I haven’t seen in which the South Park Cows are also in a dance off, or some such West Side Story referencing thing?– but nonetheless: earlier today I saw a yellow school bus parked on 13th St. on which the windows were all painted with South Park characters on a black background, and the front and the back read, “Cool Bus”. I have no idea what this means.

    A girl named Maria…Maria!

    Hey yo. When you’re a Jet, you’re a Jet all the way, from your first cigarette to your last dyin’ day.

    In other news, I feel pretty. Oh, so pretty. And witty. And bright.
