Tonsil Trouble: Eric Cartman Has AIDS (South Park HIV story line)

Thanks to Shawn's blog on which brought this to my attention. News of this South Park character's plight (or anyone else's for that matter) does not leave indifferent. Shawn's blog makes a valid point about the state of hiv funding too.

Does this episode of South Park answer these burning questions:
Is it possible to laugh at HIV?
Is it possible to laugh at public health policies?
Is it just funny?

On this side of the Atlantic we will have to wait before we see this episode on TV but in the meantime you can catch up with this episode and others online:

On the excellent site:

Tonsil Trouble - 1201 - South Park Zone
