(KGTV) - The laughs keep coming at the expense of San Diego's former football team.

The latest jab at the Los Angeles Chargers came courtesy of the writers of Comedy Central's "South Park."

"And a record sellout crowd here at the stadium. Football clearly more popular than ever with a whopping 17 million in attendance," an announcer exclaims in the show.

The show then reveals a lone Chargers fan sitting in the StubHub Center among a sea of Petri dishes.

"And we're ready for kickoff as the cheers of 17 million fans rock the stadium," the announcer adds, before the game's kickoff to the sounds of crickets.

South Park: 1. Chargers: 0.

The episode's premise revolves around the NFL trying to address falling attendance numbers by growing bacteria as a fan base.

It's not the first time the Chargers' attendance has become the butt of jokes.

Last month, comedian and late-night host Jimmy Kimmel roasted not only the Chargers but the Los Angeles Rams as well.

"Our city, Los Angeles, was recently blessed with not one, but two NFL teams: the Rams and the Chargers and both of them are having trouble filling seats …" Kimmel joked, before running a mock promotional video.
