    There's way too much South Park hate and not nearly enough Family Guy hate.
    I also hate fart jokes but if you don't like the show you must not like satire.

    That's a pretty vast generalization, and also logically invalid.

    If someone does not like fart jokes, and they dislike something that contains fart jokes and satire, that does not mean they dislike satire.

    Except for the simple fact that the longest running fart joke, terrence and phillip, was meant to be satirical.

    I think that South Park is OVERRATED, I don't HATE it... I simply don't think that it's the greatest cartoon ever like many of my friends and most of the other students I was surrounded with seem to think that it is.

    Looney Tunes will ALWAYS beat South Park in my book

    I thought of another one. The movie Life is Beautiful. What a simplistic, annoying piece of sentimental schlock.
    I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks this. I even kind of like the beginning of the film, but then it becomes :steam:

    I hope no one thinks this doesn't suck, but it sucks enough that it bears mentioning anyway: According to Jim

    Also sucky:
    Memoirs of a Geisha, the movie
    The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
    In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez (I thought this was gonna be a movie about rebels! And instead it's about all their sister issues. *snore*)
    The Giver by Lois Lowry

    It's not just fart jokes, but general toilet humor, which was funny to me in the 5th or so grade when I started watching it. But with satire, no other cartoon does it better.. that I know of.

    Family Guy is funny, they pack the show with joke after joke, which I like. I don't really care that they have ridiculous plots. But I'd rather watch South Park.

    That doesn't actually disprove my proposition. Someone might incidentally dislike satire, if it happened to have fart jokes. It still indicates little to nothing about satire as a whole.

    The way you phrased this doesn't really make sense.

    Anyway, if someone says "ok, A, B and C may be mocked. But NEVER D!", they don't so much like mocking humor as dislike A, B and C.

    But a lot of the time with South Park, the farts infuse with the satire, so someone who might otherwise like good satire might be turned off overall by the farting around.
