An important piece to Parker and Stones art is their ability to use outrage culture, particularly through vulgarity. South Park uses vulgarity as a way to point out facets of reality, one in which many do not wish to acknowledge (Ravenwood, 1999).

Despite that, the extreme exaggerations and mockery engaged in the show distances the reality South Park throws in the viewers face, allowing for the social phenomena to be taken as a joke.
