12. The Boys Meet Mel Gibson (Season 8, Episode 3)

Long before Mel Gibson was screaming about blowjobs and hot tubs, South Park tackled the controversial Oscar-winner with a sense of righteous fury. Cartman essentially turns the actor-director into his personal Jesus after seeing The Passion of the Christ – and becomes a bit of a Nazi in the process. Then Stan and Kenny find the star so they can demand their money back and quickly learning that he is crazier than Martin Riggs. Spoofing some of Gibson's biggest hits, Parker and Stone unapologetically sketch the celebrity as a gun-toting, homicidal lunatic. And in the name of adding insult to injury, Comedy Central released the episode it on DVD the same day that Passion hit shelves. Amen. BT
