    I thought Mary Ann was the soulful one.

    Is this supposed to be funny? If so, I fail to see the humor in a kid contemplating suicide.

    I didn’t watch the poe, don’t really understand making fun of someone like that.

    As for the point kid, someone might want to explain to the kid the point of South Park. Maybe he won’t take it so personally. Sorry to see that kids have started fucking with him because of it.

    I … don’t really understand making fun of someone like that.

    This kid makes a whiney video crying about a South Park episode, and then tries to cash in (by selling t-shirts) when the video becomes popular. Sorry, but no sympathy from me. That kid brought all of this mockery on himself.

    I do not have a position on whether any of this is funny or not. Clearly, a post titled “look what religion makes people do” that shows this sort of thing is about … well, I know this is kind of subtle and all but … it’s about what religion makes people do.

    Or, if the first video is funny, it is an uncomfortable mixture of funny ha ha and funny strange.

    Oh come on. The first one is a poe. It’s the second video that doesn’t get it.

    This kid makes a whiney video crying about a South Park episode

    He may be missing the point of South Park and he’s obviously clueless about the larger picture (blacks get respect but no-one likes red-headed people. Oooookay…), but he’s getting bullied at school badly enough that he contemplates suicide and makes internet videos about it. Whatever funny there is in the video, the kid is hurting and that’s serious.

    I also don’t know what religion has to do with it, it’s not clear from the video whether he’s really, sincerely getting picked on because he has no soul or (more likely IMO) the other kids found out they could get a rise out of him with the South Park video and are playing it to the hilt. The latter is bad, but it’s an issue of bullying not religion.
