Planet Earth is a better place when South Park is on the air.
Placed at the tail-end of Hump Day, South Park gives us something to look forward to during the middle of the week — a nice little treat between Monday Night and Thursday Night Football. Oh, and its also one of the funniest television shows of the last two decades, which certainly helps.
Last night, the cartoon legend returned for its 21st season, taking aim at everything from Confederate flags to Amazon Alexas. While the episode as a whole was only alright, it’s the chaos the episode caused in the real world that’s impressive.
Throughout the course of the episode, Cartman and the kids of South Park would give their various Alexas and Google Homes wildly juvenile commands:

And as it turns out, those commands carried over into people’s actual Alexas.

Don't watch the new South Park in same room as your Amazon Echo…or else Alexa will add peaches to your grocery list and set alarm for 7 am
