Did You Know?


Reportedly, not long after this episode first aired, Kanye West was dining at The Cheesecake Factory and the manager served him a plate of fishsticks as a joke. See more »


Kyle Broflovski: Jimmy, exactly what part of the fishsticks joke did Cartman write?
Jimmy Valmer: Well, he didn't actually write... any of it.
Kyle Broflovski: Let me guess: you came up with the joke, and Cartman sat on the couch eating Twizzlers?
Jimmy Valmer: Actually, it was potato chips.

Justice has been delivered.
10 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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).
