A giant, brilliant metaphor.
25 May 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was amazing. If you are into the subject of alien life, then you may have already heard of the "Galactic Federation of Planets." Trey Parker uses the metaphor of The Pinewood Derby, and the "approved kit" to hit on the subject of alien influence in our own technology. If you believe in recovered UFO's (which I do, and clearly Trey does) then it is not far fetched to believe we have reverse-engineered alien technology for our own advancements. However, we did not discover this technology on our own, therefore.. "we did not use what was in the approved kit." And we have no right to join the Galactic Federation of Planets. We have been visited... but, to what extent.. remains to be seen.
