**Cartman also assumes during season 21 that token and his family would burn the flag when stressed. I also recall Cartman talking about Token's "black rage" one episode. He also has shown racism towards asians during The China Problem.



**I disagree extremely. Besides season 20, there is no evidence of Cartman becoming less of a JerkAss (not including his extremely short time in the You're Getting Old two parter) and the other kids becoming worse and worse. Post season 15, despite not having him an outright antagonist like other seasons, still show him to be especially greedy and immoral. Also, remember Ginger cow.

***Besides, this sudden civilness is comepletely reverted at the end of Assburgers, due to StatusQuoIsGod. The two once more resume the title of arch enemies, in order to fit the theme that sometimes "it's better to stick with what you know".

** "Cartman Finds Love", despite making fun of the [[FoeYay Cartman and Kyle pairing]], seems to have only reinforced the fangirls of said pairing, CompletelyMissingThePoint of how ridiculous that would be considering they don't see eye to eye on ANYTHING. It's now considered canon in many circles.

to:

**Despite the claim that most fan girls don't watch the show for pairings, it seems to be the case. The average fanfiction completely ruins the characterization of many; particularly Kyle. Not to mention they take the interactions between Stan and Kyle, and most importantly Cartman and Kyle out of context. The former are just friends. The ladder are enemies. Some actually believe their ships will be and even are currently cannon, eerily enough.

It's now considered canon with those in many circles.the kyman fandom, oddily enough. Not all, but most seem to completely miss the characterization of the two.


Added DiffLines:

**Untrue. The writers haven't intentionally made any fandom shipping cannon besides Tweek and Craig (which was initially made to poke fun at those who shipped other characters. Of course as we know, they began to treat their relationship more realistically and now is no longer satirical in season 21.)

** Immortality doesn't always mean eternal life. It's never been implied that Kenny will live forever, just that he can't die an untimely death. Presumably he can stay dead if he dies due to old age for example.

* Fractured But Whole brings confusion for the entire franchise with one detail late in the story. [[spoiler:Dr. Mephesto reveals his son, Terrence, died in season 1 episode "Mecha-Streisand." Terrence Mephesto is seen alive as late as "Oh Jeez" in season 20.]] What does that mean for the continuity in South Park? Is there just none at all despite events happening in the real world reflected in the show, such as the presidential election every four years? Is it just sliding continuity like TheSimpsons because they're all NotAllowedToGrowUp?

** Original asker here: I actually watched it today (I haven't seem the episode in a long time, mind you), and I do can chime in on your answer. It also looked like Token was going to accept Stan's apology until the latter said that what Randy did "wasn't a big deal." Yeah, because [[SarcasmMode saying a racial slur that will upset a large amount of the US' population on national television "isn't a big deal."]]

* So how when Randy said the n-word on national television, Token spent the whole episode getting angry at ''Stan?'' It was Randy who said the word, not Stan. MisplacedRetribution, anyone?

* The YMMV page says, "Everyone and everything on the planet, at one point or another, has been lampooned on the show, even the show itself." What is the name of the episode where the show itself is lampooned?
** See the entry for South Park on the SelfParody page.

* Why do several pages say Wendy is a StrawFeminist? I don't recall any episodes that could have her qualify as such, the closest to that being some episodes with her being a SoapboxSadie.
** It appears to have stemmed from some fans having backlash over ''Breast Cancer Show Ever''. I remember one editor explaining their logic: That she beat up Cartman over a ridiculous reason in the name of feminism, and should have just ignored him. That they saw HER as the "bully" and self-righteous. Then you have some fans that take Wendy's anti-Paris Hilton stance in ''Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset'' as her being a slut shamer. Really, even if her Scrappy status sort of died down, you can see people still get very heated about their thoughts on Wendy on some pages.
