Compared to most examples, he deserved every bit of it.

Butters is delighted when a package arrives for him containing an AWESOM-O 4000 robot friend... that is very obviously Cartman in a cardboard costume. Cartman's angle for the scheme becomes clear when he tricks Butters into telling him his secrets, starting with his [[PerfectlyCromulentWord hesiated]] colon and sporadic bowel incontinence. Butters moves on to telling AWESOM-O about Cartman and his bullying, and says Cartman will never play another prank on him. A snickering Cartman is about to unmask himself when Butters says that if Cartman ''does'' prank him again, he'll show the whole town a video he recorded of Cartman dressed as Music/BritneySpears, singing "Touch My Body" and making out with a cardboard cutout of Music/JustinTimberlake.

Now Cartman has to maintain the lie until he can get the videotape. Butters insists on spending every waking moment with him, makes him do chores, and doesn't give him food or water on the logic that robots can't eat or drink. Things get worse when Butters insists on bringing AWESOM-O on a trip to Los Angeles to see his Aunt Nellie and Uncle Bud, and they are spotted on a tour of Catamount Studios. Intrigued studio execs proceed to ask AWESOM-O for new movie script ideas; he supplies over two thousand, nearly all of which are Creator/AdamSandler vehicles with ludicrous premises, and receives $100 per story. Insisting that robots don't need money and all he needs is AWESOM-O, Butters donates the money to children in the developing world, to Cartman's horror.
