Some would say that the greatest evidence of having made an impact on society is winding up as the butt of a joke on South Park. Whether your transgression is as innocuous as being too likable (Taylor Swift) or as egregious as allegedly assaulting more than a dozen women (Bill Cosby), the long-running brainchild of Matt Stone and Trey Parker is an equal opportunity roaster.
This year’s holiday special, which airs Wednesday on Comedy Central, is no exception. The show sets its sights on Miley Cyrus, U2 and the Washington Redskins (whose name is, remarkably, still the Washington Redskins). Several celebrities who have long since crossed over will also appear as holograms — most notably, Michael Jackson in the role of Peter Pan.
Roger Goodell, Uber and the Kardashian family were conspicuously absent.
