Ladder To Heaven is hilarious! It's one of the funnier episodes of Season 6.The boys win a chance to go on a free candy shopping spree but cannot find their ticket stub.They remember Kenny had it so they try looking for it.They decide to build a ladder to heaven to see Kenny and get their stub.Meanwhile all the parents and townspeople think it's "cute" and "innocent".Japan also decides to build a ladder before the US does.They also find that Saddam is building weapons of mass destruction up there.Meanwhile, Cartman uses Kenny's ashes for chocolate milk and now can see his visions and has part of Kenny in him.Ladder To Heaven is a funny episode and one of the better ones of Season 6.
