You like South Park? I fucking love it.
Profane, bizarre and controversial all the way.
They make fun of everything: Jesus, Obama, China, gay people, Asians, Mormons, celebrities and mainly all current affairs.
But the thing is, it makes fun of itself too. You can’t really stay mad at it.
And it’s really smart. Controversial as it may be, it’s filled with meaningful messages that don’t come across as cheesy. The show never gets too preachy up its own ass.
Sharing with you some South Park wisdom now. Dig in. Whether you like the show or not, don’t be all so self-righteous and shit and just open up.
10 South Park quotes teaching you how to live life
Context: Butters (little blonde kid) got dumped by a girl from Hooters. He taught she liked him for real.
Wisdom: You’re going to feel like shit in life. Beaten down and all. It’s just life. But you definitely turn it around and make that choice of knowing how beautiful life can be too.
Wisdom: Your life doesn’t really suck that bad…
Wisdom: Don’t be a cynical asshole. It’s your choice to think if everything around is shitty or you can actually make the effort to pick out the good stuff.
Context: Kyle and Cartman were looking for friends through live webcam chat. But they only found pervs who whipped out their dicks in front of them.
Wisdom: You’re going to meet a lot of friends in life. And some of them are going to disappoint you, a lot. They’re going to become that asshole you never thought was possible of them. But that’s how you realize who your true friends are. Trust me, I know. I’ve made the choice of falling out with plenty of friends.
Context: Butters was always bullied by his grandma. It culminated in him beating up another person altogether. This was the resulting speech as he finally stood up to her. Probably the best quote I’ve seen on bullying in my life.
Wisdom: Don’t even acknowledge much less deal with bullies. They’re that low. They’re suffering themselves, way more the people they bully. Don’t let the assholes and bad people in this world get you down. There’s no reason to. Chin up, focus on your own shit and move forward. That’s how capable you are. Deal with the bad people in life, and you’ve gone off course.
Context: Err Aslan was trying to inspire Butters… in Imaginationland… to imagine awesome things up.
Wisdom: Don’t underestimate yourself.
Just like me for the past year. I’ve had so many readers and other signs telling me that I’m a good writer. Yet amidst trying to learn up on marketing, business and shit, I totally forgot why I’m doing this, which is that I love to write and I want to do that solely. I think if you stick to what you’re good at, good things will happen around you.
Context: Stan got influenced by some hippies and decided to join the “movement”. He realized nothing productive was being done after that.
Wisdom: All starts with you. Take responsibility for whatever’s going on around you rather than blaming others. Take responsibility for the fact that you’re capable of improving your own life and things around you.
Also, get real. For whatever you believe in or stand for, if all you do is… well pretty much nothing productive (in this case smoking weed and listening to music only), then you’re not walking your talk. Or as my cousin put it nicely, “Sooner or later, you’re going to have to check if you’re contributing back to society”.
Context: Kyle felt like he didn’t fit in when he tried to be metrosexual, like everyone else. So Chef told him that.
Wisdom: Be who you are. Don’t conform for the sake of it. Stay true to yourself.
Context: 500 years in the future, 3 atheist factions are at war with each other (for the dumbest reason ever). The otters were about to attack when The Wise One spoke.
Wisdom: I can go pretty deep here, but I say it’s simply about opening up in life. What you read/hear/learn about for the concept of knowledge, hence intelligence is just one aspect in life. Maybe sometimes you just gotta follow your heart, get crazy, be known to be crazy and have a bunch of wild ideas. Even if others disagree, that’s cool.
