South Park Helps Make Kanye West a Better Person

South Park is still one of the funniest shows on TV. Always insanely topical, Trey Parker and Matt Stone took on Kanye West's ginormous ego in last night's episode (Plot Summary: Jimmy writes the following joke: Do you like fish sticks? (which sounds like "fish dicks" when said aloud)(and of course everyone answers that question with a yes, because who doesn't love fish sticks?) What are you? A gay fish?! The joke spreads across America like, well, some really terrible joke, with Kanye West being the one person in the universe who doesn't get it. Thus he gets super pissed and tries to figure out why everyone is calling him a gay fish, even going so far as to kill Carlos Mencia (who claims to have created the joke) because his huge ego does not abide being called a gay fish). Well, apparently Kanye saw the episode and this is what he had to say about it on his blog:

SOUTH PARK MURDERED ME LAST NIGHT AND IT'S PRETTY FUNNY. IT HURTS MY FEELINGS BUT WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM SOUTH PARK! I ACTUALLY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON MY EGO THOUGH. HAVING THE CRAZY EGO IS PLAYED OUT AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE AND CAREER. I USE TO USE IT TO BUILD UP MY ESTEEM WHEN NOBODY BELIEVED IN ME. NOW THAT PEOPLE DO BELIEVE AND SUPPORT MY MUSIC AND PRODUCTS THE BEST RESPONSE IS THANK YOU INSTEAD OF "I TOLD YOU SO!!!" IT'S COOL TO TALK SHIT WHEN YOU'RE RAPPING BUT NOT IN REAL LIFE. WHEN YOU MEET LITTLE WAYNE IN PERSON HE'S THE NICEST GUY FOR EXAMPLE. I JUST WANNA BE A DOPER PERSON WHICH STARTS WITH ME NOT ALWAYS TELLING PEOPLE HOW DOPE I THINK I AM. I NEED TO JUST GET PAST MYSELF. DROP THE BRAVADO AND JUST MAKE DOPE PRODUCT. EVERYTHING IS NOT THAT SERIOUS. AS LONG AS PEOPLE THINK I ACT LIKE A BITCH THIS TYPE OF SHIT WILL HAPPEN TO ME. I GOT A LONG ROAD AHEAD OF ME TO MAKE PEOPLE BELIEVE I'M NOT ACTUALLY A HUGE DOUCHE BUT I'M UP FOR THE CHALLENGE. I'M SURE THE WRITERS AT SOUTH PARK ARE REALLY NICE PEOPLE IN REAL LIFE. THANKS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO DRAW MY CREW. THAT WAS PRETTY FUNNY ALSO!! I'M SURE THERE'S GRAMMATICAL ERRORS IN THIS... THAT'S HOW YOU KNOW IT'S ME!
Whoa! What would we do in a world without Kanye's huge ego? Would he even be as entertaining? Or will a kinder, gentler Kanye be just what we need? I guess we shall see.

Best Kanye quote ever: "My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live."

My greatest pain: admitting that I saw Kanye perform live and it was amazing. (So amazing.)

I actually thought this was a pretty cool response - I just thought he'd hit the roof and threaten to pop a cap in their asses.:)

Every season I think SP can't get any more outrageous and every season somehow it manages. That Randy jizz scene last year? WTF? I'm still laughing at that.

It's still Kanye. "...now that people support my music and products..."

Way to go, Huckster MC!

Haha, I'm pretty impressed by his response actually, I sure hope he can eventually master not being a dick.

(Because my life revolves around him, just like he thinks it does.)

Wow, at least he got a laugh out of it. And, does this mean that he tunes in every week to watch South Park? I think that, alone, is enough to show he's a little more down-to-earth.

Also, a world without Kanye's Ego is almost like watching a movie without Seth Rogan's beard. Oh, crap, wait...

Kanye doesn't care about animated people.
