The Daily Show weighs in on South Park's Mohammad controversy

|South Park Death Threats|
The controversy over South Park's latest depiction of the prophet Mohammad went from veiled death threats to a censorship controversy when Comedy Central added some extra bleeps to last week's episode without permission from Colorado-bred creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.
The whole mess got The Daily Show's Jon Stewart so worked up that he did a whopping ten minute-plus on the subject, complete with montages insulting Christians and Jews, capped by a closing musical number framed around the phrase "Go fuck yourself."
Can't wait to see how they handle an upcoming piece featuring our marijuana critic. Check out Stewart on South Park above.
