Comedy Central Causes Controversy

Comedy Central are catching some flack for an episode of Teletubbies which is to be screened on Friday, June 25, 2010.

Although the half hour show is a parody of the Teletubbies, and has not been aired yet, the channel has already started receiving complaints.

Steve Albani, a spokesperson for Comedy Central, said in a statement: "We hoped that people would see the funny side. We are not sure why people are having such a problem over this particular show. It is not like South Park where the creators were going to put the Muslim prophet Muhammad in a particular episode. People need to lighten up and see the funnier side of things sometimes."

The Teletubbies parody episode in question is all based around Michael Jackson hoaxing his death. Tinky Winky will be played by Jason Pfeiffer, Po will be played by Arnie Klein, Lala will be played by Joe Jackson, and Dipsy will be played by Brian Oxman. It is alleged that video footage of Michael Jackson was superimposed to be the child in the sun.

Brian Oxman, talking about the show, said: "It has been a nightmare. Everybody involved wanted to get something in the show. Joe wanted to somehow promote his record company, and I, myself, was hoping to get a plug in for the t-shirts that I am selling; although I make no money from their sale. But the biggest argument was between Jason and Arnie over who was to be Tinky Winky. Both wanted to be the 'gay' teletubby in the end it came down to fight; well if you can call it a fight. It was more like handbags at twenty paces."

Although other characters have not officially been named it is rumored that Katherine Jackson will be doing the voice of Noonoo. Katherine confirmed the rumors in a recent interview when she was asked about her involvement when she replied: "Once again it looks like I'll be cleaning up Joe's mess."

At the announcement, which was rather low-key, Jermaine Jackson had this to say: "It is nice that even though my family have their pains we can still laugh. That is what Michael wants. I don't think this will distract from the planned tribute concerts that I have put together." Joe Jackson, father of Michael and Jermaine commented: "Don't put down that I'm Jermaine's father, I play that down as much as possible. If you had seen the milkman we had in Gary Indiana you would know who his father was. That greasy fucker is not the fruit of my loins."

Comedy Central expect the controversy to heat up once the show is actually aired. Steve Albani continued: "Oh come on. South Park can put Jesus in a brothel but we put a couple of gays and a couple of crooked bastards in some silly costumes and we get the hate mail. That shit is seriously fucked up."

Although the show itself has already caused controversy some of what has been captured during filming has caused even more controversy. An argument between Jason Pfeiffer and Arnie Klein was caught by one of the production staff; and the audio has been circulating the Internet.

Pfeiffer: I knew I should have been the gay teletubby.
Klein: Oh, just shut up. It was meant to be me.
Pfeiffer: But I was Michael's gay lover.
Klein: For fucks sake. That was a lie. It was all bullshit. We made that up to get you in the media. You never had an affair with Michael.
Pfeiffer: But you said that I did.
Klein: Just to get you noticed. Michael would never look at a couple of fat gays like us. For one he was straight.
Pfeiffer: So why did we say it?
Klein: Because we needed the exposure you dumb ox.
Pfeiffer: But you said it was true; and I would be famous.
Klein: Just shut the fuck up. You ruined that for us both.I told you to lose some fucking weight so it might be slightly believable. And when I got you that fitness instructor he was meant to help. But no, you fucked him and ate him you asshole.
Pfeiffer: Your just pissed because he liked me more than you.
Klein: Come on, you believe that? I had to pay the fitness instructor to sleep with you. I didn't know you was going to eat him after you fat cunt.
Pfeiffer: Ooh. Look at the pot calling the kettle black.
Klein: Least I don't look like a pot-bellied pig.

With all the controversy surrounding the show, and the main people in it, this is definitely going to be a show you do not want to miss.

The Teletubbies - Has parody reached a new low?

Peace.

Legal Notice: Comedy Central, Steve Albani, and anyone else mentioned in this post had nothing to do with anything. This post is satire. Although Jason Pfeiffer and Arnie Klein are both self-confessed gays it has never been truly confirmed that Tinky Winky is; although the handbag is a big clue.

Hahahahahahah! Loving the dialog and the picture!

The Teletubbies might be the gayest, most retarded tv-show on the universe, so it fits Jason Pfeiffer pretty well, IMO. And Joe is one creepy looking Teletubbie, isn't he? LOL. Oh well, I never liked those crazy creatures, not even when I was little, but I sure as hell would watch that show... xD

ROFL, I can't stop laughing, ever since I started reading ur posts, I'm un-insurable, because my doctors think I might explode anytime from excessive laughter. Klein & Jason's conversation is explosively "funny"!
& yes Teletubbies seems like the perfect setting for this skit.

LMAO! Oh yeah, they all fit so well in those suits! Without the need for extra padding I must add! Natural tubbies!

LOL! "handbags at twenty paces". Even Mr. GSF laughed his ass of at that one. You've started them talking about a Teletubby float for the GayPride parade on 06/05. They just don't know if they want to do it in SF, Orlando, or in both.

One thing that bothers me is the fact that so many stories are just forgotten or ignored. Cass G-S told people she was in contact with Michael. Her "column" was moved, and now? Nothing. Joke calms China visits different forums, throws "clues" left, right and center. The forum closes down, and again he/she/it is not heard from again. Are people forgetting or don't they care? If JCC etc. were telling the truth, it's important. If they were lying, this should be pursued, don't you think?
