Kyle Swims Through a Water Park of “Pee” in the South Park Season 13 Finale

This was the last episode of the 13th season of South Park. That makes me sad. Wednesday nights will be forever emptier because of this. Well, not forever more. They’ll be better again in a few months when South Park is back.

In this episode, the boys go to the local water park, Pi Pi’s, where Kyle opts to stay out of the water indefinitely due to its incredibly high concentration of urine. Cartman, however, is disappointed for other reasons: the water park is filled with minorities.

Black people.

Mexicans.

Chinese.

He thinks he even saw some Native Americans.

This, of course, is less stated than it is sung in a beautiful song. Trey Parker is quite the composer – always has been. Indeed, Cartman predicts that the Mayans got the year of the Apocalypse wrong and that rather then 2012, it’s actually happening in 2009, since the water park has been taken over by minorities and Cartman is the “last of his kind.”

When warned that the pee content of his water park is so high that the park is on the verge of disaster, Pi Pi does nothing – to the detriment of human kind . . . well, human kind currently in attendance at his water park. With the urination of one final little girl, the water becomes 100% pee and disaster ensues. Everything goes to hell – in Cartman’s eyes, the Mayan Apocalypse.

In order to drain the pee from the park, Kyle has to hold his breath and swim through it down to an underwater release valve, but in order to do that he must first drink pee in order to avoid the bends. Since pee grosses him out so much, this is obviously a monumental task. It’s pretty hilarious listening to the other boys be honest about all the things they do related to pee that Kyle considers unacceptable:

– pee in the shower

– pee in the pool

– not wash their hands after peeing

Gross!! I’d never not wash my hands after peeing. Yeah . . . never . . .

Obviously the moment Kyle drank the pee they were all rescued, since is was discovered that the antidote to anger caused by the overexposure to pee is bananas. And yes, the part where the monkeys got angry while getting urinated on was hilarious and disgusting.

Funny enough, I loved that Kyle hated bananas so much and had to eat one after drinking the pee. Why? My wife loves most foods but HATES bananas. She finds them revolting, particularly the smell. Sometimes to be cruel when we’re at the grocery store I’ll hold a bunch of bananas behind her head and then say her name so that she turns around and finds them there. She hates that. I’m very mature.

This wasn’t a killer episode like a few of the other poignant ones this season, but it was amusing, particularly the unbearably racist sentiments that got called out and exposed for being illogical: minorities are beginning to make up the majority. Get used to it. It’s okay and that’s where things were going. We’re all immigrants – thanks White Stripes.

An interesting aside: there was a commercial for Avatar during South Park, which is interesting because last week’s episode made fun of Avatar and showed South Park being really angry that the movie was ripping off something else (I asked what that something else was but nobody knew to tell me).

  1. Yeah, I’m sad this season is over too, but I really did enjoy the last episode. It was just something really silly — they’ve had their episodes about poo, but they never really did one strictly about pee. This was a good episode to watch with a group because everybody was grossed out and talking about pee… that amused me. Oh, and during Cartman’s song we got a little distracted because it kept going on and on… but that was awesome, we were like Holy shit this is long!

    You know, when they did the last episode of season 10, the one that was a parody of the Mighty Ducks… that was probably my least-favorite episode ever. I didn’t think it was funny until way later. And this season disappointed me a little because they made very few jabs at social happenings (in comparison to other runs)… but watching the last episode yesterday reminded me that this show is sometimes at its best when it’s about being totally stupid and immature. It seemed like they had fun with this episode, and it reminded me of shit that happened in seasons 2 & 3. Maybe they’re doing some reflecting =)

    Enjoyed the article, take care

  2. What? This was the season’s last episode? Awwh :/ Anyway, I think this season had some funny episodes, not oldschool south park funny, but definitely funny. But a few, like that motorcycle episode, was of pretty poor quality, i feel. And the brought back the mayor, with a new voice -_- But also Big Gay Al ^^ Cool to see old characters again. South Park is one of those shows that have had insane character change and development, and ofcourse in a good way. But ofcourse I do like the first seasons more. South Park has been my favorite show since I started watching it when I was 9 and it first came to Norway. I feel like I’ve grown up with those guys ^^ I’m gonna go watch Jewbelee and other old episodes now 😀

  3. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on the episode. I really enjoyed it, too, for the dirty immature throwback. I loved the Emmy shit episode, but that was remarkably poignant for a lot of reasons. This was definitely on the sillier side but still got plenty of guffaws and laughs out of me.

    You both mentioned season 3 in your comments. That was a great season, with episodes like Jewbilee topping the profound meter.

    I was 13 when South Park came out and I also feel like a grew up with it. I took a hiatus there for a while because I was only enjoying the dirty words and not the point of the episodes, but when I returned to it a few years later it instantly became my favorite show. . . and has been ever since.

    There’s always season 14 to look forward to!

  4. This episode was darn hillarious… i love southpark… the only competitor worth watching is The Simpsons… Hate Family Guy
