It must be Shart Week on the Terrence and Phillip show.

Damn Butters for being so cute and getting that song stuck in my head
Interesting to find out, got a bit of a Wall Street/Boiler Room vibe from some of the scenes, but figured that was just me imagining it
As for the episode (new here but not to the show) I'd give it probably a 8/10. Quite liked it and got a few good laughs out of it. As an obsessed lover of Poutine, that bit bug me so much . Need to watch the episode again to really form a decent opinion (as mood can play a role, watched TMI first when I was tired and not really interested in any comedies, thus first found it pretty bleh).

You kidding? There are about ten people in this thread who dislike the episode in the first 5 pages alone.
The episode just wasn't that good. Featured a stale running "joke" where Kyle acts like Cartman (this is like Sitcom 101).
The Slash stuff was wonderfully absurd and welcome, but they just forced it in there. The only reason Cartman started up the crack sport was so Matt Stone could tell the world what he feels about college basketball...forced, contrived message, with not much funny.
The funny in this episode:
- Terrence and Phillip (they never fail to deliver)
- The Slash stuff
- Ripping on Sarah McLachlan
Gone is the cunning/cheek/sarcasm from Eric Cartman. It's sad. It made a brief appearance in T.M.I.
Good to see T and P back as a little joke at the start not the whole episode.
I also don't find that they really forced anything upon us.
I am also disappointed in the recent evolution of cartman's voice. In the first season it was kind of annoying but it reached a peak around episode, say 501-610?

She's famous enough that she doesn't need one. See: WWE wrestler Edge, and Justin Bieber
That doesn't make sense, but thanks for the explanation.
Steven Harper, and Rush were with their Canadian heads. And does it get more famous than Terrance and Phillip? I think Sarah McLachlan would have been more interesting with a trash can head.
So as far as I can tell, Canadian celebrities are only designed in the Canadian art style if it's an episode taking place in Canada. Celine Dion in Not Without My Anus and Rush (and a couple other musicians) in Royal Pudding are the only Canadian celebrities who've had a Canadian design as far as I have observed. (I am not including Terrance and Phillip here, because they are not based on actual people.)
To sum up: Real-life celebrities who are Canadian only look 'Canadian' if they are in Canada.
I'm not sure it makes a whole lot of sense, but it is an observable pattern.

Because that's what it was - German and a made up language.
