In the opening scene, Cartman offers to "rochambeau" (that is, groin-kick) the British-accented Pip over possession of an arrowhead. Rochambeau was a French general who aided America in its War of Independence against England. John Trumbull's painting "The Surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown" shows British general Cornwallis surrendering to the French troops of Rochambeau on one side and the American troops of George Washington on the other.

Very funny!
29 September 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Mecha Striesand is a very funny episode of South Park.Cartman finds a triangle during a field trip and throws it away, Kyle then picks it up and gets all the credit for finding it but Cartman now wants it back.He always complains about how he found the triangle until Kyle gives it to him.Meanwhile Barbra Striesand comes to South Park looking for the triangle.She wants it so she can turn into Mecha Striesand(a metal godzilla like version of herself) and take over the world.Now Chef and Leonard Maltin must stop her.Leonard Maltin also gets Sidney Poitier and Robert Smith of the cure(who guest-stars in this episode) to help try and stop her.This is a really funny episode with some hilarious scenes! A great classic South park episode.
