The premiere of the 21st season of South Park is a little over a month away, and the show will commemorate a solid two decades of pissing people off when it celebrates the 20th anniversary of the airing of its first episode this weekend.

Frequently described as "freakishly tall," he once used his 6'10" frame to sneak in the NBA Draft before walking around the streets of NYC masquerading as the newest member of the Utah Jazz. Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to land him a contract, so he was forced to settle for writing on the internet for a living instead. If you're mad about something he wrote, be sure that any angry tweets you send note the similarity between his last name and a popular insult, as no one has ever done that before.
