How Will Kauai React To South Park Episode?

The “South Park” episode that aired this week portrays the Garden Isle and its denizens in a way that actual residents may take issue with.

It involves lots of haoles, Elvis, frozen drinks, kamaaina discounts, a cruise ship, Nawiliwili Harbor and at least two background characters that look an awful lot like Linda Lingle and Neil Abercrombie.

It’s just a cartoon, of course. But my guess is that some will take offense.

Going Native
Original Air Date: 10.17.2012

Butters’ outrageous behavior is a sign. It's time for him to begin a journey where he will follow in the path of his ancestors. When Butters starts acting out at school, his parents realize it’s time to tell him why he’s not like all of the other kids. He must travel to a foreign place to learn the ways of his people. It will be a difficult trip for a young boy to make alone so Butters chooses Kenny to travel with him to the distant and secluded island of Hawaii.

1. So some will take offense? So what. That's what South Park does.
