"Camptown Races" is a minstrel folk song written in 1850 by Stephen Foster. It was sung by Butters in the Season Seventeen episode, "The Hobbit".


Butters sings this to himself at school while getting something from his locker. After he turns down Lisa Berger for a date, Wendy Testaburger accuses him of being insensitive to her by calling her too fat for him to date. Butters was being honest and shows Wendy pictures of girls he does find attractive, which happens to be TV personality Kim Kardashian. Wendy tells him those pictures are airbrushed and fake.
