Your post on South Park macho triggered a memory from Fallujah days in 05 which I think was probably less than a year after Team America came out ... I’d ride around with the Marines throughout the city and frequently hear Fallujans referred to as durka durkas’ or mohammad jihads.’ i.e., check out that durka durka over there.’ Everyone seemed to know the America...Fuck Yeah’ song. I don’t begrudge them for trying to find some way to laugh amidst what was increasingly an absurd and absurdly dangerous situation, but wonder if Parker & Stone have ever realized the extent to which their intended irony was lost.
And when will the troops finally echo that other classic Cartman line: "Screw you, guys. I'm going home"?
