You read it! You can't unread it!
Far better than last week's pile of crap. People getting hit by Amtrak trains and the great satirization of memes made it worth my while. Hope we get to see the other kids on the show soon. And by the way Niels, that was a meme expert, not a new teacher. Mr. Garrison will be just fine.

I was thinking that, too, but they never actually said, "I like trains."
I wonder if South Park will actually popularize Faith Hilling and Taylor Swifting. XD
Though, I did laugh at the talking cat and wished I could have given M&T my cat pictures. That would had been just funny seeing pieces of bread around them.
Favorite South Park Character: *too many* But I like Kenny,Kyle,Cartman,Butters,Satan,& Damien.
The GOP voice clips were funny. I like how they used real audio clips with no real coherency to them (which actually made the candidates more bearable to listen to).
I simply can't rate South Park on a scale of 1-10 anymore because I never know how I'm going to perceive an episode upon a second viewing or a year from now or whatever. As weirded out as I might be now, I might laugh my ass off the next time, or I might still be weirded out. I don't know yet.
Also "No Kitty, that's a BAD Kitty!" sort of came back for a minute.
I support CartmanxStan
Cartman, Stan, Kenny, Butters, Clyde and Bebe are my favs.
Anyway, I thought it was fine. I didn't quite enjoy the parts with the Boys, though.
Favorite Characters: Randy, Yates, and Butters
Favorite Episode: Cartman's Incredible Gift
Favorite Pairing: Randy x Sharon
memes are absolutely anything and everything "popular" on the internet.
viral videos are memes. Choclate rain is a meme.
the actual music video for Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up is a meme, as is the "action" of tricking someone into watching/listening.
memes, as used in the context of internet subculture, are ABSOLUTELY ANY CONCEPT that is disseminated widely and which undergoes change and variation as it is disseminated, while simultaneously becoming a cultural phenomena that can be referenced and understood without much explanation.
pictures of cats, 4-pane poorly drawn MS paint comics, terrible 4chan anonymous Guy Fawks masks, etc.
these are all memes.
the most interesting part about this episode was that the writers took the OPPOSITE stance that most people in these internet subcultures take (imageboards, reddit, YTMD, SA, NG, etc.)
most people tend to take the stance that NEWFAGS ARE BAD.
thus the new memes are bad.
the south park writers took the stance that knowledge and use of the newest memes makes you cool.
this is not a sentiment shared by most people.
Easily one of my top 10 favorite episodes of all time.

The whole idea is that cats ARE a meme. I'm pretty sure they knew this. It started with LOLcats, then grew to include anything pertaining to cats. My friend Trevor posts something cat-related to my Facebook wall at least every other day. I even read a news article about how the internet was "dominated" by cats. I'm a huge cat lover, so it works for me.
In Soviet Russia, South Park watches you.
