Trivia

The sub-plot of Stan being taken in by PETA from the wild but falling to disfavor by not following their marriage beliefs is a parallel of John Ferrier's story in "A Study in Scarlet", where Ferrier is saved from the wilderness by the Mormons and in return for being let into their society, promises to follow all of their beliefs but falls out of favor when he doesn't partake in their polygamist beliefs.

Excellent spoof of voting and elections!
4 November 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

This episode came out back in 2004, when George Bush and John Kerry were running against each other in the US presidential election.I remember watching this episode back in 2004 and finding it interesting.Now it's 2008 and the presidential debate is between John McCain and Barrack Obama.The series started playing on comedy network from it's first season.It's supposed to be on it's third season now but here we have a Season 8 episode because of the presidential elections.The group PETA protests the South Park Elementary School mascot which is a cow.So now the students have to pick another mascot.Due to a practical joke by the boys, the two most popular candidates are a "Giant Douche" and a "Turd Sandwich".Cartman & Butters take the Turd Sandwich side while Kyle and Kenny take the giant douche side.Stan however does not want to vote and everybody(including Puff Daddy and his parents) ostracize him for it.They eventually banish him from South Park and he goes to live with PETA.This is a very intelligent and funny spoof of the whole presidential election! Great episode!
