China's South Park Revolution

You might have read the story in the NYT today about China's government fretting about YouTubes about a "grass mud horse," a phrase that when spoken is, apparently, very naughty. The video is above. Videogum did some investigation:

The children are singing about grass mud horses ("Fuck Your Mother") who live in a desert ("Your Mother's C-word") (ha), and defeat the river crabs (a word synonymous with "censorship.") Do you know what this means? It means YouTube is IMPORTANT.

South Park, meanwhile, took on another totalitarian dictator last night. Mickey Mouse will never recover.
