We were good kids. We were really good kids. But somewhere along the way, something happened and it changed us. We started hearing cuss words and seeing middle fingers and we felt the need to adapt those things into our everyday lives. South Park, which began its run in 1997 was not something that all of us were allowed to watch, yet many of us snuck a peek at the crude humor of Stan, Kyle, Cartman and Kenny. Parents thought it was a bad influence and in many ways it was. That being said, those of us in possession of a fully functional brain grasped the concept that it was only a cartoon and took strictly the vulgar words and crude jokes – not violence, from the show. However, WWF’s attitude era was a different story – it made us use cuss words AND be violent, but how could we resist? It was so hard to not flip people off and open a can of whoop ass after watching Stone Cold Steve Austin do it on Monday nights. Hell, if we were of age we probably would’ve downed a 12 pack of beer immediately after. Then, we had to watch Degeneration X rampaging around the WWF with their disrespectful shenanigans which made us want to defy all forms of authority in the most sarcastic, rebellious ways possible – and then tell them to “suck it”. If that wasn’t enough we got our cocky, douchebag tendencies from The Rock and his electrifying personality. When you look back and remember being innocent, well behaved children, just know that South Park and WWF circa 1997 are the reason you’re so vulgar and disrespectful to your peers in present day. And that’s the bottom line, because I said so. Smell what I’m cookin’?
