In February, the Senate Armed Services Committee discovered that the private security firm Blackwater had diverted hundreds of AK-47s and pistols from a U.S. weapons bunker in Afghanistan to Afghan policemen. Whoever signed for the weapons from Blackwater did so under a fake name: Eric Cartman.
Cartman is, of course, one of the characters on Comedy Central's South Park, the animated sitcom that's been satirizing everything in the news and pop culture for the past 14 years. Created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, South Park follows the adventures of grade-schoolers Cartman, Stan Marsh, Kyle Broflovski and Kenny McCormick — while tackling topics like gay marriage, Scientology and Terri Schiavo along the way.
When Parker and Stone heard about the Blackwater incident, they both had the same thought: How quickly could they parody the incident on an upcoming episode?
"I think our first instinct is always, 'How do we put this in the show?' " Parker explains to Terry Gross. "Anytime we read anything remotely interesting we try to think how we can put it in the show."
