Oddly familiar :)

Was wondering why you didn't post something a couple weeks back when that episode came out.

Have DonnerKay and the Fondren fruits commented on having their very own Southpark episode?

Now I'm confused! I am getting ready to go to closing on a condo at Harbor Walk, I mean it has it all, but should I hold out for this vision to materialize in SOFO Fondren?

I saw Ben Allen in skinny jeans and you didn't!

What's even funnier is CtPaTown. (once you've watched the SoDoSoPa vid) Our equivalent would be "Hip, Happening, FONDREN!", while our versions of SoDoSoPa would be 'The Township' and the condo "district" at 'Lost Rabbit'.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7Dtn5_F3Us&index=3&list=RDmiXMWJyOdgw

CtPaTown is about what you can actually expect.

But hey! We're sure to be getting a 'hip & withit' new video for the upcoming 'River Ranch at Lafayette' (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTlA3AK1q54) River Ranch Mini-Me community recently pitched for the site of the old Colonial Country Club. Maybe it'll be called 'CoCoClubDistrict'. or maybe 'MoFoTownship'. I'd love to be able to say, "We've moved to an amenity-rich loft community in MoFo..." Impressed parties will reply, "Oooooh! I've heard about those! They have ceiling fans and fences!"

I don't think the inevitable video will be featuring Dixieland Klezmer music, though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HAetMFfXOdQ . For Jackson, they'll probably "dial it back" to 'Top40 Elevator' music, like the vid for this stellar River Ranch event: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Tz36tFVn2A

Just click your ruby slippers together, and keep repeating, "It's all in the Branding! It's all in the BRANDING!..."

sounds better than Madison

Something is seriously wrong with you people. You hate Jackson, now, especially Fondren, you hate Township, Lost Rabbit and all of Madison. Show us YOUR "branding". Oh, you don't have any? Because you don't try anything.

So, is Mr. Hat still on the show??

The District at Eastover-DictOver. Or, The Diss. NoJackIsTan? Dont forget The Old Capital Green. OlCapiGreen. You mentioned HarBoWok. Flowood Town Center-FloTown. The Urban Wildlife Refuge-URWEFUGE. Twin Lakes Flood Zone (HiWatrMark). HoFoods, already a gleeming reality in The Jackson Renaissance. Invest now.

What have you done @3:11 PM?

Andrew, you seem to be seeing a HATER under every bush.

Hate: "Any thought, expression, or deed, which does not clearly support MY agenda."

Anonymous said...

Dear Andrew hater at 3:49, you're hating on the wrong developer. Not his deal. Not sure which this cartoon is about, but there are two residential projects in Fondren proposed by two different developers who don't deserve your crap either. You can go back under your bush now.

3:43, if you only knew...

Lost Rabbit, for those of you who are behind the news by about six months, is rockin' and rollin'. If you been out there, or if you've been on the Trace, you can see the new development all the way from Overlook.

This cannot be compared to the idiocy of Fondren in any way by any stretch of the imagination. We're talking half to a million dollar residences at Lost Rabbit and rent for a 1200 square foot box in Fondren at about $3000 a month with the ability to vacate over-night.

Go Ben!

6:38, I have a really good idea. See you soon.

I don't watch tv for the most part. I didn't know about this episode until one of you mentioned it in a comment earlier this week.


I found it pretty funny as some things looked VERY familiar.

Y'all are giving me a good laugh this morning. OH YEAH? MY NEIGHBORHOOD IS BETTER THAN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD!!!!NANNYNANNYBOOBOO

Oh, snap! 3:11 just TOLD you suckers! You live in places that don't even have BRANDING! And as my granddaddy used to say, "If you ain't got branding, you ain't got sh**."

Speaking of branding, with County Line Road rapidly shifting north, I wonder if the Mayor from the mythical land of Madison is able to brand her town with a big red brick wall?

Messick said...

Does Kenny still die?

I haven't seen the show in years.

This isn't making fun of places like Fondren, at all. It's making fun of places developed out of whole cloth, and more especially "town center" places in the 'burbs. Lord.

Anonymous said...

8:47, did you produce it? Clearly a parody / copy of a former Fondren mktg piece for a proposed Fondren condo that became an office building.

One building. OK.

No, it's making fun of videos produced to market inner city developments in cities where people actually want to live. But some vids done for projects around here clearly EMULATE the kind being parodied by South Park.

10:15, "one building. Ok" So you give your worthy grace because one building was built. Office demand overcame residential on that one. Boutique hotel became the desire on the remaining parcel. Until people, probably like you, protested that "undesirables" might stay there.

Go watch the entire episode and tell me it isnt making fun of places like Fondren. The only thing they need to add is the fear for your life.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
