"Attention shoppers...in the parking lot...Cripple fight..."
12 April 2009 | by (Topeka,Kansas,USA) – See all my reviews

The summary line comes from a line Cartman delivers to a crowded shopping center. It's the climax scene of this ep where South Parks resident disabled hero,the wonderful Timmy,faces stiff competition from the new disabled kid,a palsied comedian named Jimmy. Meanwhile,the scouts--for which all the boys including the two just mentioned--gets a shake-up when Big Gay Al is no longer allowed to head the scouts because he's--SURPRISE!--gay. His replacement,a Mr.Slippyfist(really)turns out to be something worse,much to the too-late-chagrin of the parents. The resulting re-verb furor over the discrimination rounds out the episode,and the overall result is blissful comedy. While the politics of this show has a scrambled yet slightly Republicna feel to it(and really,not too many of these dhows DIDN'T have that),it should still please most viewers of "South Park",maybe even winning over a few converts. Just one of the MANY great eps,much of them from a five year period(1999-03)where the show was at its most purely creative IMHO. Worth TiVo-ing,for sure.
