But Parker and Stone are, in fact, geniuses, and the second thing of their's I ever saw proves it.
If you need any proof of that (beyond Cartman's triumphant episode) all you need to do is watch Your Studio & You, the faux newsreel they did for Universal. It's one of the funniest things anyone with a knowledge of the workings of studios will ever see. THey use recogniseable faces and names to play up the comedy, needling Universal's "Old and Stupid" concepts, and giving a great series of bits over the course of 15 minutes. It's hilariously good fun!
Plus, they had teh audacity to call Traci Lords a recording artist! ha!!!
