A lot of fans are speculating because Tweek might be a buddhist and Craig mentions Tweek in the clip, but we'll see if 'Buddha' has any real story relevance. I usually enjoy intentionally over-speculating but I don't think I'm going to do that this time.

Looks like "Le Petit Tourette", "Ass Burgers", "Raising the Bar" or "Safe Space" - an episode where Cartman takes advantage of something health-related to his ends. I think that's a solid satirical story structure but I found the returns severely diminished with each reuse.

I'm sure some people will still find it funny and they should be pleased, and that's all that really matters.

I'm bracing myself for more irritating "Fatass thinks he's a victim." No one co-ops someone else's struggle better than Lardo and it always makes me want to see him kicked in the nuts.

That said, "anxiety" is one of those massively over-diagnosed and poorly defined conditions with literally infinite causes and just as many proposed solutions; many of which are total placebos or just something that distracts. Then you get people just going through normal human experiences; ups and downs; good days, bad days; and they use that as an excuse to bring their stupid little dog on the goddamn airplane. "Support Animals"; I mean come on. You just want to bring your cat on vacation.

What does it do? Asking for someone too lazy to look it up. ;)
I'm going to guess food.

I don't think anxiety is over-diagnosed as much as overclaimed, in the same sense that there are many, many, many people who claim they "have OCD" often to justify repetitive behavior, but none of those people actually have a formal diagnosis of such a thing. I say this because my mother and many of her friends do this, one of them firmly in the abuse of support animals category, but who also complained specifically because a policy was altered to ask for a doctor's note they obviously did not have. Many disorders are actively over diagnosed, but I think this is about neurotypical people using the disorder to justify behavior while not bothering to check themselves. You see it with depression too; people claiming they have depression to justify doing sh*tty things, but you know those people do not actively suffer from it.

I can tell you in detail about real deal OCD and anxiety. I can’t even change my calendar anymore because “Something bad will happen”

“88.3 WXFU” would be virtually impossible in both that location and frequency.

And that was friend of the show Brad Paisley at the end with “Today” (2017)
