    South Park on Job

    My Through the Bible in Five and a Half Years course is covering Job tonight, and as I've been busy with the new baby (and his sister and mother) I asked my friend Stu to lead the session. And I'm glad he did. Whereas previously I had only been aware of one film about Job he remembered that South Park covered the story a few years ago in their own irreverent fashion.

    The Job clip featured in Cartmanland (season 5) where Cartman inherits $1 million and builds his own amusement park. The official South Park site (which features a number of clips from the episode) gives the following synopsis:
    Cartman inherits a million dollars from his grandmother and fulfills his lifelong dream of owning his own amusement park: Cartmanland! A hemorrhoid erupts in Kyle's ass when he learns of Cartman's undeserved fortune, making him question the very existence of God and whether there's any reason to stay alive in a world where someone like Cartman is happy.
    You can also hear creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone discuss this episode on YouTube.
