The Friday Funny Sign: South Park is a Real Place and Cartman Doesn’t Live Here

I can’t imagine why Fairplay, Colorado would want to clarify that this area is the REAL South Park. Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of the animated Comedy Central show “South Park,” based the setting of the show on the town of Fairplay and some of the other small communities in Park County, CO.

Despite the success of the show and the cult-like following, it doesn’t seem like some of the Fairplay rresidents are avid fans. It’s not all that surprising since the show features some biting satire about small town mountain living. Consequently, this sign above is prominently displayed at one of the main junctions off of Highway 285.

  1. Very Interesting. I would have assumed it’s the other way no matter the case is as long as it features their area. I guess people do tend to get affected by the scenes.

  2. It’s sort of a mix. I once saw a cutout sign of the character, Kenny, that you could pose with for photos in downtown Fairplay. However, I think since the portrayal is largely negative, many Fairplay folks get offended. Thanks for your comment and like, Rommel! Steph
