Who among us hasn’t wanted to mer­ci­lessly mock Cart­man, pull a prank on Mr. Gar­ri­son or kill Kenny?

And for char­ity’s sake? Trey Parker and Matt Stone, ev­ery­one’s fa­vorite rab­ble rousers and the cre­ators of “South Park,” are of­fer­ing a chance to step into their long-run­ning Com­edy Cen­tral se­ries as a char­ac­ter.

Parker, who in the video an­nounce­ment sports his Colorado roots with a vin­tage Bron­cos shirt and Buffs hat, went to Ev­er­green High School and Uni­ver­sity of Colorado Boul­der. Stone may not be sporting a hat, but he also grew up in Lit­tle­ton and went to CU, where he met Parker.

The con­test, which is be­ing run through crowd­fund­ing site Omaze, is part of a fundrais­ing ef­fort for Next for Autism — a na­tional non­profit that runs pro­grams to sup­port peo­ple with the de­vel­op­men­tal disor­der.

• Be­ing im­mor­tal­ized in an episode of “South Park” and get­ting drawn into the show as one of the towns­peo­ple

• Meet­ing the show’s “hi­lar­i­ous cre­ators,” Trey Parker and Matt Stone

• Vis­it­ing the South Park stu­dio, grab­bing lunch and see­ing how the show comes to­gether

• Get­ting flown out to L.A. and put up in a 4-star ho­tel (flights and ho­tel in­cluded; and you can bring a friend, too)

• Prob­a­bly some­thing else (our lan­guage, not theirs)

If you’ve been dy­ing for “eter­nal life,” as they say in the video, or at least be­com­ing a “ran­dom townsper­son” to be used in scenes where crowds chase the mayor, or run from a vol­cano, visit­park to do­nate and en­ter.

The dead­line is Jan. 31, 2018, and win­ners will be an­nounced on or around Feb. 16.
