South Park (Comedy Central)

WHAT HAPPENED In the 2005 episode ''Bloody Mary,'' faithful Catholics flock to South Park when a statue of the Virgin Mary is seemingly bleeding from its butt. Pope Benedict XVI shows up to investigate and declares that the bleeding is actually coming from the statue's vagina, not her anus, and is therefore not a miracle. ''Chicks bleed out their vaginas all the time,'' the pope shrugs.
PUBLIC REACTION The Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights railed Comedy Central for the way the episode portrayed a religious icon, demanded an apology to all Roman Catholics, and tried to get the episode banned from future broadcasts and DVD releases. Comedy Central pulled a planned repeat of the episode that same week but has aired it several times since. Mike Bruno

Must not have worked LOL
