If you didn't catch last night's South Park, you missed out. Not only did it touch on Arizona's focal issue, illegal immigration, and introduce the world to the term "Mexi-Jew," it featured the show's portly, pissed-off star, Cartman, portraying a hillbilly sheriff bearing a striking resemblance to Maricopa County's corrupt top-cop, Joe Arpaio.

In the episode, titled "The Last of the Messicans," the boys play a rousing game of "Texans vs. Mexicans," after which Cartman joins the Border Patrol and is hell-bent on getting every Mexican out of America -- which is very Joe-esque.
We can't say for sure whether South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker had America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" in mind when they created Sheriff Cartman, but it seems like a hell of a coincidence if they didn't. See below.
