Quotes

Jay Leno: So apparently more and more Americans are eating fishsticks. Have you seen this? Have you read about this? Loving fishsticks, kinda makes me wonder, you know? What is everybody, a gay fish?

I must say, I could not stand Mencia or West before this episode, and they finally have been exposed for their indecency (literally grand theft, in Mencia's case). I really enjoyed the satire in this episode, and the intertextuality at the end was amazing. This is arguably the best episode in years, provided that you don't side with Kanye or Mencia. I wish I could post links to sites that relate to this episode, but I would recommend searching for Kanye West's self-proclaimed "genius" article, as well as his response on his online blog to the episode (he apologizes for being a giant douche). For Mencia, there are numerous YouTube videos giving evidence of him copying other material (Joe Rogan, Billy Cosby, etc, etc).
