In Kyle's house towards the very end of the episode (1610 - Insecurity), we see Randy and Chris Stotch running from the UPS truck just before it blows up. Insecurity calls the driver: "This is Brian with Insecurity. Is everything alright?" UPS driver: "No, they blew up my car! They blew up my car!"
UPS drivers use a TRUCK, not a CAR. I say this is a blooper. Calling a UPS truck a car? Come on now; no one during production caught this? Those big brown things UPS drivers use are TRUCKS. Randy and Chris did not blow up a car.
1. a. a self-propelled road vehicle designed to carry passengers, esp one with four wheels that is powered by an internal-combustion engine
b. ( as modifier ): car coat
2. a conveyance for passengers, freight, etc, such as a cable car or the carrier of an airship or balloon
3. ( Brit ) a railway vehicle for passengers only, such as a sleeping car or buffet car
4. chiefly ( US ), ( Canadian ) a railway carriage or van
5. chiefly ( US ) the enclosed platform of a lift
6. a poetic word for chariot
It's a car.
UPS trucks are built by an automotive manufacturing firm called Grumman Olson. Trucks, not cars. In 1966 Grumman and UPS got together to develop the now familiar UPS P-600 and P-800 truck bodies, featuring lift-up fiberglass hoods and translucent fiberglass roofs. <---- "truck bodies," not car bodies.
I repeat, in the episode, the UPS driver is talking to the security company saying twice that his "car" was blown up. He should have said "truck" as it was a truck that got blown up. Surely the South Park production team should have caught this blooper before air time.

No, I tried to post in the Season 16 Blooper Forum, the forum where bloopers are posted. That's the purpose of a blooper forum.
Call them what you want. Put this superfluous shit in the post-air discussion. It's not a blooper, and doesn't warrant its own thread.

Actually, that bugs the hell out of me too. SUVs aren't trucks or wagons, they're SUVs. My Aunt Mary keeps calling hatchbacks wagons. It also makes me sad for humanity when someone calls a magazine a "book", but I digress.
One other blooper I thought I spied... did the Indian call center guy get his voice and name changed in the later scenes, or was that a completely different guy?
