South Park wins Emmy

For Make Love, Not Warcraft.

An Emmy award has been presented to the Make Love, Not Warcraft episode of South Park.

The awards were held last Saturday, where people who know about telly judged the potty-mouthed cartoon to be the most Oustanding Animated Program of last year.

Make Love, Not Warcraft shows Cartman and pals get sucked into the virtual land of WoW, eventually shunning sunlight and toilet breaks to defeat a menace to the whole world... of Warcraft.

South Park beat competition from The Simpsons, Robot Chicken, SpongeBob SquarePants and Avatar: The Last Airbender to win the award.

Interestingly, South Park's other Emmy award came in 2004 for an episode called Best Friends Forever, which centred around the PlayStation Portable launch.

World of Warcraft is now played by more than nine million people around the world... of Warcraft. Sorry.
