A show as crazy as South Park is bound to generate more than a few crazy fan theories. The show has touched on seemingly every major event for the last twenty years, and stirred up controversy every step of the way. It has also created its own vast, strange mythology, giving fans plenty of raw materials giving fans plenty of raw materials to make outlandish yet believable theories.
Some of the South Park fan theories make a lot of sense while others are more fun than anything else. We'll probably never know for certain whether any of these fan theories about South Park are actually true, but one thing is for certain: no one and nothing is safe from the show's satirical t-shirt cannon. From Jesus to Saddam Hussein, the show has made fun of just about everyone.
One of the best parts about South Park conspiracy theories is just how off the wall some of them can be. But because the show is equally crazy, no theory is entirely out of the realm of possibility.Check out this list of some of the best South Park theories and vote up the ones you think make the most sense.
Officer Barbrady Has Never Really Been A Cop
According to this theory, Officer Barbrady is only the town idiot pretending to be a police officer and the residents play along because they feel bad for him. There's quite a bit of evidence to support this, including the facts that there are other "real" police that people go to when something really bad actually happens, no one takes him seriously, and there are several instances were prisoners have just walked out of his jail.
Cartman Is Deeply Self-Loathing
For this theory to be true, Cartman has to be far more intelligent and self-aware than he gets credit for. It says that the reason for his outlandish behavior, especially towards Jews and Kyle, is that he's lashing out against the one person who constantly reminds him of who really is: an insecure kid who is uncomfortable with himself. Kyle is relentlessly and brutally truthful with Cartman, but rather become a better person, Cartman externalizes his self-loathing, resulting in hate for anyone different from himself, whether they're Jewish people or gingers.
Kenny, Stan, and Kyle Are Still Friends with Cartman Because He's Right So Often
One of the greatest mysteries of South Park is why anyone is still friends with Cartman. He's proven time and time again that he's calculating, bigoted, and downright vindictive, especially when it comes to Kyle. This theory explains that while he is all of those things, he's so often correct that he's worth keeping around. He may just destroy a life or two, but he's been known to be right about a great deal of major things that no one else believed, until he proved them wrong of course.
South Park Is Just the World the Kids See
For most kids, the world is a strange and mysterious place. Add in a few highly active imaginations and it's possible that all of what happens in the town South Park is real, except it's being told from the kids' exaggerated point of view. Kenny dying, for instance, might just be their overreactions to him being clumsy and getting hurt frequently.
