The Green Life: South Park Spoofs Dolphin Hunt

South Park Spoofs Dolphin Hunt

In the town of South Park, no subject is sacred, including the controversial Japanese dolphin trade. While the plight of marine mammals has been explored in the documentary The Cove and the television series Whale Wars, we're betting that South Park's upcoming episode, "Whale Whores," will offer the most humorous treatment of the subject. According to Ecorazzi, the attack shown in the above clip compels Stan to take on the dolphins' cause. The cartoon character could use high-profile activists for inspiration, so we're curious to see how the story plays out. The full episode is scheduled to air Wednesday night on Comedy Central.
