Comedy Central has already turned its humorous guns on Osama Bin Laden, thanks to Monday night’s editions of “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report.” But the network isn’t done with the dead Al Qaeda leader yet.
On Wednesday (May 4), Comedy Central is re-airing two episodes of “South Park” featuring an animated and decidedly cartoonish Bin Laden. “Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants” will air at 9 p.m. ET and will be followed by “It’s a Jersey Thing” at 9:30, leading into a new episode of the series at 10.
“Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants” aired two months after 9/11 and depicted him as a villain who was about as competent as Elmer Fudd, which was brilliant then and is still really funny today.
In “It’s a Jersey Thing,” a desperate Randy Marsh asks Al Qaeda for help in repelling an advancing guido-guidette horde, but Osama gets his at the end. A clip from each episode is below.
