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?

Do you like Fishsticks?
11 April 2009 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Fishsticks is the newest episode of South Park.This one spoofs celebrities such as Carlos Mencia & Kanye West.Cartman and Timmy come up with a hilarious joke about fishsticks(which sounds like fish-dicks) and gay fish.Everyone starts using the joke and Cartman wants to cash in on it while Jimmy does not.Jimmy was the one who really came up with the joke, but Cartman believes that it is him who came up with it.Meanwhile, the joke is stolen by comedian Carlos Mencia, also everybody starts telling the joke to rapper Kanye West who cannot figure out why it's so funny and gets offended when people call him a gay fish.This episode was fairly funny and interesting.A bit better than the previous episode, I would say it's on par with "Margaritaville".
