South Park Leads to Cultureal Appreciation; in Related News, Hell Freezes Over.

Leave it to South Park to force some culture down my throat by accident. Y'see, I'm catching up on all the SP episodes I've never seen (quite a few), and I happen to watch Quintuplets (original air date 4.26.00), an episode wherein Kenny McCormick has to learn how to sing better so the boys can have a "successful" circus (or whatever). Kenny pops in a "singing for dummies" - type tape, and lesson #3 is: Sing Con te Partiro. The tune hits a note (pun intended) with me, and I spend the next fifteen minutes hunting down the song by Andrea Bocelli.

South Park leads to opera appreciation. And people say nothing good ever came of South Park. Go figure.
