As Thanksgiving approaches, the boys see a TV ad asking for people to sponsor starving children in Ethiopia. They decide to give it a try, motivated less by the thought of helping someone less fortunate, than by the offer of a sports watch for every sponsor. Expecting their watch to arrive, the boys are surprised to find an Ethiopian boy delivered to their door. When the mix-up is discovered, the FBI quickly swings into action, only to ship Cartman to Ethiopia instead. Meanwhile, Dr. Mephisto's new flock of genetically engineered turkeys has decided not to go quietly to the chopping block. Written by

Did You Know?
The episode was partially inspired by the commercials for the Christian Children's Fund, in which Sally Struthers
encourages viewers to donate money to provide food for starving children in Africa. Trey Parker
said he did not really believe Struthers was hoarding food from the charity, but he came up with the concept because he found it funny that such an obese woman would make a public plea for food for others. See more
