Video: 'South Park' Mocks Penn State Sex Scandal

| by Michael Allen

This week, Comedy Central's TV show 'South Park' mocked the sex scandal that has stained the Penn State football program. During the episode, Kenny and his siblings encounter a social worker who jokes about former Penn State assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky's alleged sex abuse of children.

“I’ve been looking over my file and see you kids have all been horribly physically and emotionally abused. Oh, whoops! That isn’t your case file. It’s the Penn State University Gazette," the social worker cracks. "Ha! I’m joking."

After informing the kids that they have their choice of foster homes - Neverland Ranch, a Catholic church, or Penn State University - the social worker tells a joke: “How about this one? Joe Paterno doesn’t walk into a police station."
