Good episode. I liked the buddy/friend/guy runner.

Does anyone have a transcript of Kyle's speech at the end? I'd like to read it. He talked too fast for me to understand it fully.

All Hail President Abootman!



We thought we could make money on the internet. But while the internet is new and exciting for creative people, it hasn't matured as a distribution mechanism to the extent that one should trade real and immediate opportunities for income for the promise of future online revenue. It will be a few years before digital distribution of media on the internet can be monetized to an extent that necessitates content producers to forgo their fair value in more traditional media



Thanks, guy!



No problem,buddy
Kyle: Why? How could you do this? There are people starving in Alabama and you give Cartman a million dollars?

Cartman: Line? Lines! I HATE LINES!!!

I'll give it a 3/10. Perhaps its funnier to an american or canadian, but i didnt care much for the Strike thing.

Their interpretations of the internet videos were not very creative imo (they usualy do much better).

Their point(?) was also very stupid, to ridicule people that made funny videos but without making money ("only in theory").

So far a very disapointing season, except for 1203.

Okay I am now declaring this the best episode this season by a long shot. Terrance and Phillip's small contrabution to it was enjoyable, as was Ike's. The YouTube stars were awesome(exspecially when the gopher turned around and the guy's head exploded). What What in the Butt was histerical. And the Canada on Strike song was the best musical moment we've seen for awhile. All and all 100% grade south park, or mabye more like 87% but thats still good. Oh and I adored the "Let's watch American Comedy moment" that's something I know well.

I thought that this is the best episode this season, and having watched all the youtube videos that appeared in the episode, i found it more enjoyable.

One problem...

No kenny! :zombiekenny:

It's like he dies as usual but you don't see it!

Butters' video is hilarious, but the real version is just freaky. :mrgreen:

I agree that the WGA was too much of an 'in joke' to be funny, not much of the episode revolved around that. The musical numbers kicked ass, as did the ridiculing of the "Yoo Toob" sensations we love to hate. Butter's is getting gayer by the episode: the musical episodes are all the best. The cannadians 'guy,buddy,friend' thing was funny for me at least. I loved

never noticed a Rand reference, not that I think it was intentional: they're both Libertanians so obviously have simmilar ideas. They hate Rand so must have browsed her, especially her book "chicken lover shrugged" :)

As said above. They must utilise Trey's musical abilities for good not evil! Moar Cartman would've been nice, but it's great to see a KYLE episode. Wish it was the kids being kids rather than travveling across the world to change international politics though. GORDON BROWN/ NICOLAI SARKOSY RULE!

The cannadian's Trey Voice was unnervingly like his real voice though.

:tp: It was pretty good. I knew the dramatic chipmunk was going to turn around and kill the Chocolate Rain guy just by giving him that evil look, but I still got a good laugh out of it.

I appreciated the mockery of the writer's strike too.

Dramatic chipmunk really was a recycled gag from the court case in Chef's Salty Balls...

Not too crazy about the story itself. When it consists of a thinly or not-at-all disguised rant like this, my attention wanes. I've seen it before.

Everything else, however, was fantastic. The musical numbers, the Battle of the Internet All-Stars*, and Kyle's message among other things made this an overall excellent episode.

*I am sorry to admit that I recognized all of those internet sensations, but am happy to say that I'm not so much of a nerd to have discovered them before they stopped being "cool."
