  • "Well, spank my ass and call me Charlie, isn't this exciting. Two A+ students in a cloning war."

    Kyle gets the brilliant idea to genetically engineer pot-bellied elephants so he can have an elephant as a pet, but is disappointed to find that pig and elephant DNA won't splice. Chef suggests getting the animals drunk so they can make love and produce their own offspring. Meanwhile, Stan's genetic clone is wreaking havoc on South Park. Even spliced together, these elements feel like different stories running through the same episode, and it never achieves a completely cohesive feel, although parts of it are certainly funny. Kenny's death is particularly well-done in this episode (no pun intended), but it is the highlight of an otherwise mediocre journey.
