Sean Penn makes Team America's day

You'd almost think that Sean Penn was in cahoots with Parker and Stone in promoting their movie featuring a puppet Penn.  Surely a smart fellow would know not to make a public outburst as Penn did.  

Surprisingly however, Jeff Spicoli turns out not to be a brain trust.  Someone who's been a pretty big celebrity for 25 years should know not to lend credence to a satire by being publicly offended by it.  Duh.  That's celebrity pr 101.  Spicoli apparently cut class that semester.

Thus, before the movie came out, one of their prime satirical targets had published this little blast:

October 6, 2004

To Trey Parker and Matt Stone,

I remember a cordial hello when you guys were beginning to be famous guys around Hollywood at some party. I remember several times getting a few giggles out of your humor. I remember not being bothered as you traded on my name among others to appear witty, above it all, and likeable to your crowd. I never mind being of service, in satire and silliness.

I do mind when anybody who doesn't have a child, doesn't have a child at war, or isn't or won't be in harm's way themselves, is encouraging that there's "no shame in not voting" "if you don't know what you're talking about" (Mr. Stone) without mentioning the shame of not knowing what you're talking about, and encouraging people to know. You guys are talented young guys but alas, primarily young guys. It's all well to joke about me or whomever you choose. Not so well, to encourage irresponsibility that will ultimately lead to the disembowelment, mutilation, exploitation, and death of innocent people throughout the world. The vote matters to them. No one's ignorance, indcluding a couple of hip cross-dressers, is an excuse.

All best, and a sincere fuck you,

Sean Penn

P.S. Take this as a personal invitation from me to you (you can ask Dennis Miller along for the ride as well) to escort you on a trip, which I took last Christmas. We'll fly to Amman, Jordan and I'll ride with you in a (?) 12 hours through the Sunni Triangle into Fallujah and Baghdad and I'll show you around. When we return, make all the fun you want.

Man alive, Parker and Stone have gotten Spiccola's goat, and weren't about to give it back.  What could they have said to cheese him off enough to act that dumb? Boy, they must have got him good. 

This certainly generated in me a great anticipation to see what they did.  Thus, the Sean Penn stuff really stood out twice as funny to me for how it was burning the target.  Ha!

The best bit for Puppet Penn (Parker's puppet Penn, not Saddam's) was a little tv speech:

It's not really a partisan thing, though.  I don't recall Parker or Stone ever specifically endorsing the Iraq War.  For starters, based on their work, you'd probably have to deduce that they would have very mixed feelings.  But still, as Matt Stone told a 60 Minutes reporter, "When Sean Penn is on TV before the Iraq War talking about the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty...that is pure comic gold. I don't care what side of the aisle you're on."
