  • Bizarro Episode: As an April Fool's Day prank, this episode was sandwiched in between the "Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut" two-parter. Although the episode is not well-liked among the fandom, Trey Parker and Matt Stone state this to be the only episode they liked from the show's first three seasons because it was "something weird and different." Overlaps with Magnum Opus Dissonance, since Trey and Matt consider the show's first three seasons to be an Old Shame, and season 2 to be their most hated season, despite the fact that said seasons are home to some of the series' most memorable episodes.

  • Broken Base: Even years after the fervor over it being a "prank" episode, people still debate over if the prank was funny or a low blow from Trey and Matt, and if the episode itself is a hilariously over-the-top bit of grossout humor or if it's just dumb. Most fans are at least glad that it introduced Saddam Hussein as a character, though.
  • Vindicated by History: Fans were livid about this episode when it first aired because it denied them the follow-up to the cliffhanger that they so desperately wanted, making the whole thing feel like a great big "fuck you." Said fans have since let the backlash die down and, with the help of newcomers who weren't there to be burned when it aired, it now sits comfortably with the rest of the series.
