"Put It Down"

It appears North Korea will play some role in this week's episode of South Park

The episode is titled "Put It Down" and according to the preview, it seems the saber-rattling between the U.S. and North Korea is just too much for the always edgy Tweek. 

The episode will also deal with the relationship between Tweek and Craig, who are a couple, but neither one is gay. 

"When Tweek is caught in the middle of a petty conflict, it drives his relationship with Craig to the brink," according to the preview. 

There will also be fidget spinners, because, of course.

South Park took a shot at white nationalism in its season premiere. That same episode also wreaked havoc on viewers' smart speakers, with major Alexa trolling. 

It is unclear the exact nature of the North Korea plot, but this is hardly the first time Trey Parker and Matt Stone have poked fun at the country's leadership. 

Kim Jong-il was the main villain in the duo's 2004 puppet film, Team America: World Police

In that film, the dictator is revealed to be an alien cockroach.
