'South Park' Premiere: The Toilet Ghost Pays A Visit (VIDEO)

"South Park" (Wed., 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central) returned with the Season 16 (count 'em) Premiere Wednesday night and showed no signs of slowing down.

The residents of South Park were visited by a spectral apparition: none other than Sir John Harington, who invented the flush toilet all the way back in the late 16th century.

Incensed that the locals were not using his invention correctly, Harington showed them just how to do it.

As he demonstrated, when doing "a Sir Harington," one should sit facing the cistern, not with one's back to it.

"So you can use the little shelf for your books and your quill and your ink." Ingenious!

When one guy observed that if you sit like that you'd have to take your pants all the way off, Harington pointed to the ubiquitous hole in the stall wall and aked, "Why do you think I designed toilet rooms with a laundry hole?"

That prompted a collective"Ooops!"

The potty-mouthed mayhem continues on "South Park" Season 16, Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on Comedy Central.
