South Park has once again put Jerry Jones and the NFL in its cross hairs.
In the show’s latest episode, titled “Moss Piglets,” the writers ridiculed the Cowboys’ owner and the league for their obsession with the sport’s declining ratings.
At the start of the episode, two students create miniature ‘Water Bears’ during a special education science fair. Jones and his security team show up the next day in dark suits and sunglasses, claiming the creatures are the key to solving the league’s ratings crisis.
Never miss a local story.
And yes, the premise is as absurd as it sounds. The scene then cuts to an empty stadium as announcers blatantly lie about the attendance figures.
Later, when a student tells school officials to cancel the science fair, Jones and his posse hold everyone at gunpoint and force them to continue.
The last time the show went after Jones was during an episode that focused on the controversy surrounding the Washington Redskins’ team name.
