Letters of Note: gems of correspondence
This side-splitting memo from Matt Stone prior to the release of South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut in 1999 is one many gems of correspondence contained in Letters of Note. Others include a terse resignation note from a young William Faulkner, and the wife of Aldous Huxley’s touching account of the author’s last LSD-infused moments on earth. Read the memo below.
Here is our new cut of the South Park movie to submit to the MPAA. I wanted to tell you exactly what notes we did and did not address.
We left in both the “fisting” and the “rimjob” references in the counselor’s office scene. We did cut the word “hole” from “asshole” as per our conversation.
We took out the entire “God has fucked me in the ass so many times…” It is gone.
Although it is not animated yet, we put a new storyboard in for clarification in the scene with Saddam Hussein’s penis. The intent now is that you never see Saddam’s real penis, he in fact is using dildos both times.
We have the shot animated that reveals the fact that Winona is not shooting ping-pong balls from her vagina. She is, in fact, hitting the balls with a ping-pong paddle.
We took out the only reference to “cum-sucking ass” in the film. It was in the counselor’s office and we took it out.
We left in the scenes with Cartman’s mom and the horse as per our conversation. This is the one joke we really want to fight for.
Call with any questions.
P.S. This is my favorite memo ever.
