Last night, as promised/threatened, South Park tackled the Bill Cosby rape allegations in the most South Parkian way possible — by weaving it into an initially inscrutable subplot that only played a small part in lampooning a meta cultural force.

This particular segment of the show featured Bill Cosby serenading a woman on a holiday special with "Baby, It's Cold Outside," which everybody who has turned 16 has discovered sounds a little bit like an ode to a midwinter's date rape (in recent years, contrarians have argued, fruitlessly, that this is not the case and that we should all go back to loving it, but that hasn't stopped the association). Unfortunately for Bill Cosby, one of the verses of the song also spells out his exact alleged modus operandi — drugging women before sexually assaulting them.

Merry Christmas!
