What's going on with Hulk Hogan's hair? It's blond and yet it's silken, like that of a Chinese man.

Ah yes Uh, that is Hulk Hogan's signature's look. Blonde, Chinese hair And skin of a hot dog.

Written by long time veterans of the show, Scott Marder and Rob Rosell and Directed by one of my favourites Randall Einhorn, this episode starts with some hilarious dialogue and situations and mounts until a full on brawl for the soul of America!

Dee does a fantastic job in this episode, she shined. Her story was hilarious, it really tied in well with the rest of the gangs antics.

We get introduced to Ben the Soldier and his strange love for jean shorts.

Landmark episode.
