Hey, they found our pictures of the UPROXX interns.
Of all the posts I’ve done here over the years, putting together the 100-page slideshow on Catbreading was easily in the top five funnest things I’ve ever done for money. (The other four? Getting tickled by TV’s Dave Coulier for cash. Allegedly.) So it made me squee like a little girl being tickled by her moose-impersonating uncle who lives in the basement to see last night’s episode of South Park, “Faith Hilling.”
The episode starts with a GOP presidential debate with Gingrich, Santorum, Romney, and Paul all talking over each other with actual audio clips from the debates. Then Cartman crashes the stage to be photographed doing the hot new meme pose: “Faith Hilling.” The pose has usurped planking, owling, and even Tebow-ing, but it has competition in a new meme called “Taylor Swifting.” The kids are warned — via the same type of school films our driving instructors used to show us — about the dangers of meming. At the same time, cats have shown a disturbing new ability to increase their intelligence by participating in their own meme: catbreading.
The full episode is available free at South Park’s official site, and we’ve collected several pictures and GIFs related to the episode after the break. Yes, we’re basically doing a meme watch on the South Park episode on the danger of memes. It might implode the internet. Click “Begin Slide Show” if you’re feeling adventurous.
