    Hmm. Reminds me of a Futurama episode when an asteroid with little people on it crashes into Bender. Another group rises on Bender's ... What do you call that area? Ah. Lower back region, and because Bender isn't hearing them, they stop believing. Then the people on Bender's chest convert them. Into radioactive dust! And everyone dies.

    For all of the trashy talk and such, South Park very much is aware of the socio-political environment it is a part of. Look at how fast they whipped out episodes on the Florida debacle, Elian Gonzalez, Osama and other hot topics - a week or so after these things had happened, episodes satiring these issues or at least bringing the ludicrous nature of some of the components to light debuted. I am impressed that they've taken their show from its bathroom humor opening days to a slightly more intelligent show.
