Storyline

A heinous crime has been committed in South Park: the chickens at a local farm have been molested by a pervert. The criminal leaves a note behind as a clue, forcing Officer Barbrady to admit his shameful secret: he's illiterate. The Mayor sends Barbrady back to elementary school to learn how to read before he can return to work. Desperate to stop the Chicken Lover before he strikes again, Barbrady enlists the help of the boys in piecing together the mystery. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The Original: "Respect Mah Authoritah!"
30 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this episode of South Park, Mr Garrison takes the class to a reading place where The Book-Tastic Bus is, where there is a hippy bus driver who is obsessed with reading books, realising how very weird, childish and annoying The Book-Tastic Bus Driver Is, The Boys decide that they never want to read again! (Because they think "Reading Sucks Ass!") Meanwhile, a disgusting rapist is going around having sex with chickens, (Pink Flamingos reference, Tee Hee Hee!) who is stupid enough to give out clues to the people of South Park to catch the rapist! Officer Barbrady has not read a book in years and with the help of The Boys, it is up to him to catch the chickenlover! If you are a South Park fan and you have not seen this episode yet, please do, it is a must see! If you are a book worm and you don't like being made fun of for reading lots, do not spend 23 minutes of your life on this! A fantastic episode with Cartman being a police officer! "Respect Mah Authoritah!"

Overall Rating: 9/10!
