South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have lampooned the recent Writers Guild of America strike. As described by the website Hollywood Today, Wednesday's episode of the animated series featured the head of the "World Canadian Bureau" leading Canada into a cos tly and pointless strike. Characters in the episode also remarked that more money was lost by striking than could ever be realistically gained. (Animated shows like South Park are not covered by the Writers Guild of America contract.)
