Comedy Central prankster laureates Matt Stone and Trey Parker have a gift for bullshitting reporters—only recently they had the European media reporting that Saddam Hussein was being tortured with forced viewings of the South Park movie—which is something you may want to keep in mind as you read Page Six's account of the duo's Electric Kool-Aid Academy Awards:
"SOUTH Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker say their bizarre decision to dress in drag and sashay down the red carpet at the 2000 Oscars was made easy - thanks to LSD. "We took acid and tripped," Stone tells the November issue of FHM. "It seemed like the right day - drop acid and get on the red carpet in a dress." But lest anybody think he's a druggie, Stone adds, "I haven't taken acid since then."
No, we imagine he didn't, especially after having to describe his Gwyneth Paltrow-inspired, cotton-candy-hued gown to the ever fashion-inquisitive Joan Rivers, whose glistening death mask of a face is enough to induce bad tripping in even the most sober of individuals. Still, the typically tedious proceedings were undoubtedly rendered that much more lively with the added chemical enhancements, particularly when the two collaborators fearfully clutched at each other during a shared hallucination in which Angelina Jolie appeared to be eating her brother's face.
