7 whacky life lessons we learned from ‘Team America’
In 2004, the creator’s of the animated “South Park” show Matt Stone and Trey Parker made audiences break out in laughter when they produced a satire film about an elite counter-terrorism team of marionettes that was tasked with saving the world from corrupt leader Kim Jong-il.
In the laugh-out-loud comedy “Team America: World Police” With the help of a newly recruited Broadway actor, Gary Johnston, the team will travel the world attempting to stop terrorists from destroying many innocent countries with their WMDs.
Although this film is fiction (believe it or not), it raises many solid points on how our world is run.

Check out our whacky list of valuable lessons we learned from watching those life-like puppets on a string.
1. The best time and place to propose marriage is right after a firefight
There’s nothing more romantic than a couple in love that enjoys killing terrorists together.
The reaction and acceptance.
2. Spying is really acting
This whole time we’ve been fighting the war on terror, the CIA should have just sent a member of SAG-AFTRA behind enemy lines to resolve the entire conflict.
3. Tell a woman what she needs to hear
And nothing more if you’re trying to hook up with her.
And he seals the deal!
We can’t show what happens next, but use your dark military humor to figure it out.
4. Even North Korean dictators get ronery from time to time
Kim Jong-il has some vocal pipes on him.
5. We shouldn’t always rely on computers
After Team America is temporary defeated, the world’s greatest computer “I.N.T.E.L.L.I.G.E.N.C.E.” had one job: decoding and analyzing what the terrorists were going to do next. It failed us when we needed it the most.
6. When you want someone to take you seriously
Give them this look.
7. If you need to become bigger, faster, and stronger in a short amount of time…
We’re going to need a montage.
