  • "Silly" Indeed...

    Okay, so Cartman get's angry at Token (the school's only bla-, I mean African-American, student) for constantly calling him fat, so he throws a rock at Token and hits him in the head. The FBI gets word of this and storms into the school to arrest Cartman under the "hate crime" laws. This poses a problem for the boys as they get into a bet with the girls (just before Cartman's arrest) as to who can sled faster down "Phil Collins Hill"... what's the problem? Cartman's fata$$ was the reason they were fast on the sled, and now he's in jail. While in jail, Cartman meets a character by the name of "Romper Stomper" (a nice throwback to the Australian film about a skinhead group) who promises to help him break out of jail as long as he agrees to sneak in cigarettes. A hilarious scene takes place when the boys visit Cartman in jail and give him the cigs and he then has to sneak them past the guards by sticking them up his a$$, one at a time ("Boy, I wish I hadn't just sat here and watched that just now")... FUNNY! Anyway, so to get Cartman out of jail the boys go to Token to ask him to tell the judge that he forgives Cartman. Well, while at Token's home the boys get educated by his father (he also happens to have a problem with the Hate Crime laws) about the hate crime laws and they then go to the Mayor to get the court's ruling overturned by giving her a little presentation, "Hate Crime Laws: A Savage Hypocrisy". I thought this was a hilarious episode that has some replay value... hearing Cartman trying to crap out the things he's hidden in his a$$... priceless! Loved it!
