ëSouth Parkí Wins Fancy Prize

The Peabody, that is:

The biggest cheers went to Trey Parker and Matt Stone, co-creators of Comedy Central’s “South Park.” In introducing them, [Jon] Stewart said he marveled at “at their ability to keep the show fresh and hilarious” after nearly 10 years on the air.
