Lots of tips last night about South Park, some even before the show had finished airing. The subplot about Kyle’s contract with Cartman was even funnier than what you’re about to see but I can’t post that for reasons that will be obvious to you if you caught the episode.

Sadly omitted from the otherwise sterling sequence that follows: Butters’s hostage tape. I’m sure that’ll surface on YouTube somewhere today; in the meantime, content yourself with the sight of Al Qaeda beating him with rifle butts.

Note the religious figures at the beginning of the clip among the fictional characters of Imaginationland. Heh.

Update: Here’s the whole episode. Lots of testicle humor.
