Merry Christmas, Charlie Manson!

"How could you lie like this? To children!"
South Park (Season 2, Episode 16)
This Christmas classic is the heart-warming tale of a psychopathic killer who discovers the meaning of Christmas.

The boys have an encounter with convicted murderer Charles Manson while spending Christmas in Nebraska.
(Kept an eye out, and didn't spot a single candy cane.)

The truth is out there.
Still pleasantly surprised to be finding little alien symbols, signs, and occasional visitors themselves hidden in the backgrounds of South Park episodes... The smiley face on Manson's forehead tattoo becomes an alien for one quick shot.

Beefcake... BEEFCAKE!
Enjoyed the continuity with the kids' sleeping bags... Plus a quick throwback to the first season when Cartman gets dressed, his  "BEEFCAKE!" muscle shirt is briefly seen.

 Terrance & Phillip play some reindeer games.
I'll often skip past a Christmas episode when I'm watching a season on DVD... But this holiday episode is also just a damn good episode of South Park.

"And the Grinchy Poo himself
carved the roast poo."
Charlie Manson has an epiphany while watching holiday TV specials, particularly during "How the Grinchy-Poo Stole Christmas".

God bless us, everyone.
