Toronto feels like butt of 'South Park' joke

Southpark It's been about a decade since South Park truly offended anyone. But this subway ad, featuring a character from the show nervously awaiting “a giant red probe that’s about to be shoved up his backside,” has some riders of Toronto mass transit squirming in their own seats. For research purposes, we did a quick Google search for “anal probe” and “advertising,” and were not all that surprised to see a George Parker post about Saatchi & Saatchi come back as the top hit. George doesn’t ride Toronto subways that much, though, so he’s probably safe from the censors.
