List Rules Vote up the most on-point elements of South Park's "Skank Hunt" episode.
South Park has been savagely laying waste to everything the world holds dear for decades. Rather than blunting their acerbic wit, time has acted as a whetstone to sharpen their sword metaphors. In "Skank Hunt," South Park examines the way in which the digital world is becoming increasingly intertwined with our lives outside of our digital personas, expertly satirizing Internet culture and our desperate need for validation.
This South Park Internet satire hits so hard because most of it felt 100% real. From the way that one person is able to poison another’s life without ever making physical contact to the way that we’ve all become online detectives, "Skank Hunt" could make anybody feel a little self conscious about their own online habits.
You can always count on South Park to make you feel uncomfortable with your own behavior. At its best, the show is a mirror held up to society to showcase how terrible we can be, especially when we think we’re doing the right thing. If the show is supposed to make us feel weird about the way we use the internet – it succeeded.
