I really liked this episode. It shows how greedy people in general are; not just us Americans. The world view of America is that we're a bunch of fat, excessive tv watching-job losing-glutinous-power hungry retards that just wants to take over anything new that goes on in the world, when in fact, we're ALL like that. :roll: I think it has a good moral meaning, or rather a realization that we should er... acknowledge. And I'm wondering "why Finland" too... so random, and SO funny! :lol: :lol: I can't wait for the finale; good buildup thus far for season 13.

Not my favorite of this season, but still a great episode. Especially Randy as princess Leia (or what's her name) was great.

WOOOOO!!!! FINLAND!!!!!

It's so awesome that M&T included us!

To those who wondered about why wasn't our female President Tarja Halonen in the episode, I think it's because nowadays our Prime Minister has a bit more power over everything. The guy in the show did actually look a bit like him. Google Matti Vanhanen if you want to check.

Thank You, South Park for making me laugh for all these years!

I don't think it was totally random. For why Finland would have told the cops about that money. The country has appeared constantly at the top of the least corrupted countries in the world throughout 2000's. Also when the aliens were asking about what happened to Finland I believe the suicide comment was referring to the countrys grim suicide statistics (esp. amongst so called western countries) and also to the common misconception that the Finns are suicidal.

I found the whole part with my homecountry extremely funny. :D I'm going to kill myself now.

Hilarious!

Sometimes SP surrealism works and sometimes it doesn't. This time around I thought it was awesome. So much ridiculousness - Randy having the entire world on a conference call whenever the space cops landed, nuking Finland, the Mexican water parks, everyone believing that warp speed was achieved from using only the items in the approved pinewood derby kit, lying to the space cops as if they would have no way of finding out, sealing the earth in the cube thing, the whole concept of "space cash"....etc....

You guys who thought it was confusing were thinking too much. The whole reason it was funny is because it was all so impossibly stupid.

Second favorite of the season so far, right behind Margaritaville.

Couldn't help but notice that we Finnish people looked... normal.
Weren't scandinavians supposed to look Canadian? Except with bigger pupils?

So whats going on in Finland. Was it random pick, or was there some context.

The man in episode might be Matti Vanhanen, the prime minister of Finland.
