Pussy Riot Get Jesus Endorsement on 'South Park'

Mostly imprisoned Russian fire-starters Pussy Riot have been shown mucho American love from Madonna, Green Day, Ad-Rock and everyone in between; and now they can add Jesus to that list — sort of. Last night's South Park episode "A Scause for Applause" spoofed the Lance Armstrong doping scandal and everyone's obsession with those LIVESTRONG causes-as-fashion rubber bracelets (to wit: we're still rocking our "VOTE JASMINE TRIAS" wristbands from Idol Season 3). After 30 minutes spent making rubber-bracelet people feel like total rubes, popular South Park character Jesus ripped open his tunic to reveal a dope FREE PUSSY RIOT T-shirt.

It's nice to know the South Park dudes can still find time to promote a worthy cause in an episode that basically says "You're all doing worthy causes wrong." Or at least we think that's what happened, since it's all just a confusing libertarian propaganda machine with jizz jokes these days. 

Anyway, if you're not up on game, South Park season 16 is better than most TV shows' season 3. This episode was funny as hell and you can watch the whole thing here for the next seven days or so.
