came off weird... not something i'd expect from south park
I think he was a "creative consultant" It looked like his job was to just sit there and laugh at Trey's jokes. I doubt he is involved with this block of episodes since he is busy with SNL
Why do girls wear makeup and perfume?
Because they are ugly and they stink. Fucking LOL...
I thought they didn't show him talking b/c they wanted it to look like Trey and Matt were doing all the work
That could be true but I doubt it. I wish they would have had him do some voice work on the show because that is Hader's biggest talent
just now watching it, wasn't sure where the ep was going until last of the meheecans
so then the fireman says, that won't even fit in my scrotum
I just didn't understand the hand raising thing.... is there more to that?
Greatest part of the whole episode was Randy stepping outside and seeing all the leaves in his yard and
giving the horrible Darth vader Ep. III NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
didn't catch it the first time but did on the second showing.
Monty Python Life of Brian.
I don't know if that came from a specific movie but I viewed it as a gesture showing that Mantequilla had ultimate power over the Mexicans
went over my head... oh well... hopefully it is better next week. Glad some people enjoyed it
Loved this episode.
this part killed me.. great reference
guess what word is Spanish for butter?
great episode. they've really started the season off well.
If you didn't enjoy this episode, you need to get a little more cultured. Fucking hilarious.
I don't know if his role has expanded, but I remember reading or hearing an interview with Hader where he talked about just hanging out with Matt and Trey, getting high, and brainstorming. I don't know if he's technically a writer, I think they're just friends.
loving this season so far
I'm excited.....T-minus 10 minutes
Loved the lemmiwinks episode
fuck, this fish is awesome
episode was absolutely ridiculous
Really good episode there.
The frog saying "he is fucking him up" killed me.
Very good episode. Being propelled by diarrhea down the hallway was outstanding. Oooooooooh oooh it's bad!
best episode in years
pump the brakes
i will not
You're embarrassing yourself
Bass to mouth and trout to ass
I guess I'm the only one who thought it was awful.
Diarrhea with Mr Mackey was great, but other than that... meh.
making fun of little faggots and gossip was pretty awesome and lemmiwinks is always legit, he fucking murked that wikileaks mother fucker
Same. Laughed at a couple things, but overall I wasn't a fan.
Ep was awesome
I never liked the lemmiwinks episode. Maybe there is some parody in there that I'm missing with the frog and the song bullshit . But it started out kinda funny then went downhill with the wikileaks thing.
Mr. Mackey explosive diarrhea was great. Other than that it was fairly meh. Besides the trout to ass and bass to mouth business of course.
trey & matt killing it this run
lemmiwinks is my hero
I was drunk when I watched it, but I thought it was great.

Church Of Scientology Investigated 'South Park' Creators Matt Stone, Trey Parker: Report
For Matt Stone and Trey Parker, nothing is holy or immune to satire. And since the launch of their groundbreaking animated TV series "South Park," they've skewered a multitude of world religions, pointing out hypocrisies, inanities or just playing with ridiculous stereotypes. One of their most famous religious satires, 2005's Scientology-targeting "Trapped In The Closet" episode, allegedly struck such a nerve with the church's leaders that the group responded by targeting Stone, Parker and their friends in a long-term covert investigation.
Marty Rathbun, a former Church of Scientology executive-turned-critic and independent worshipper, revealed to the Village Voice a number of documents that detailed the religious sect's detailed surveillance of the Emmy-winning TV moguls. Through the help of informants, public records and various other means, they searched for "vulnerabilities" in the pair's personal lives, and after exploring their personal and business connections, widened their focus to investigating actors such as John Stamos, as well.
"Phone records. Bank records. Personal letters that expose some kind of vulnerability," Rathbun told the Voice. "They'll read stuff into the kind of alcohol you're drinking and how much. Prescriptions. They'll figure out your diet. They can find out a lot about you through your trash."
Rathbun's personal site leads with a post that includes more information, including this summary: "In ’06 the creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, became targets of Corporate Scientology’s OSA. Operations were run in an attempt to silence Parker and Stone. While Corporate Scientology was ultimately unsuccessful, left behind an instructive data trail during their efforts."
"Trapped in the Closet" featured a storyline that had Stan, one of the four children that make up the show's core, take a "personality test" after being encountered on the street by a group of Scientologists. The vague test reveals that he is miserable, which leads him to agree to pay the church to make him happy again. An "E-meter" reading reveals that he is housing the soul of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, and various Hollywood celebrities who are members of the church flock to his home to help convince him to become their new leader.
One of those celebrities included Tom Cruise, who locks himself in a closet, which was a clear allusion to various rumors about his sexuality. John Travolta, another member of the church, soon joined him in the closet. Stan's friends tell him that the religion is actually a cult, pointing out that Hubbard was a science fiction writer, though he at first refuses to believe it. Eventually, the Scientology elders reveal that the church is a for-profit con, calling their own religion "crap."
Cruise was so incensed by the episode that he allegedly threatened to not participate in promotion for "Mission: Impossible III" junket if a re-run of the episode was aired; Viacom owns both Comedy Central and Paramount, the studio that put out the film. Cruise's reps denied this, though the episode was indeed pulled. Stone and Parker, for their part, put out a satirical statement on the matter:
"So, Scientology, you may have won THIS battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun! Temporarily anozinizing our episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your pitiful man-bodies. Curses and drat! You have obstructed us for now, but your feeble bid to save humanity will fail! Hail Xenu!!!"
"Trey Parker and Matt Stone, servants of the dark lord Xenu."
Rathbun teased more documents, which reveal major advances in their investigations, would come soon. He was arrested in September, allegedly at the behest of the Church of Scientology, though charges were later dropped; the Voice reported then that the Church of Scientology was harassing him, in part because he practices the faith outside of the official Church.
"South Park" satirizes religion in just about every episode (click here for a slide show of ten of their most memorable). The show has cast Satan as the cowardly lover of Saddam Hussein, while Kyle, another of the four core children, comes from a very stereotypical Jewish family. Parker and Stone also created the Broadway show, "Book of Mormon," which pokes fun at that religion.
