Trivia

References to Popular Culture

  • In the official commentary, Matt Stone and Trey Parker mention that the episode is an homage to The King of Kong, a documentary about breaking the world record high-score in Donkey Kong.
  • Bono "wanting bitty" is a reference to the "Harvey Pincher" Sketches from the comedy show Little Britain.
  • Bono repeatedly sings "Hello! Hello!" and "Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!", which are lyrics from the U2 song, "Vertigo".
  • The measurement used for weighing crap, "Couric" is a reference to journalist and former Today Show host, Katie Couric.
  • Inside Bono's house is a picture of him next to civil rights activist Jesse Jackson.
  • Stan mentions that he has sold subscription for real life sports magazine Sports Illustrated
  • Real life Chinese restaurant P.F. Chang's is referenced in this episode, with its food contributing to Randy's constipation.

Goofs

  • Randy Marsh states to Sharon, "I'm sorry that I don't have a Nobel Prize nomination", despite winning one in Spontaneous Combustion--though he might have lost it due to his discovery leading to global warming.
  • Despite Jimbo having seen Randy's crap the night before, he seems just as surprised as the other guys when Randy shows it to them in his basement.
  • Stan tells Bono that he has a 2nd place award for most Sports Illustrated subscriptions sold. Bono then points out he has the 1st place award, but his trophy reads "#1 Sporting Illustrated Subscriber"
  • When Randy is getting an ultrasound, Gerald can be clearly seen standing next to Stuart McCormick, as they, along with Skeeter, Stephen Stotch and Jimbo Kern watch and offer support to Randy. A few seconds later, Gerald somehow just arrived at the hospital to inform the group that he just got off the phone with the EFSMB and that Randy will have to take the crap in Zurich.
  • When Stan watches Bono go for the "biddy", he is shown standing in the group between Jimbo and the EFSMB officials. Then when Broloff says that Bono couldn't shed the fact that he was a number two, Stan has disappeared from his spot and the EFSMB officials have moved in closer to Jimbo and Stephen. Then Stan is shown again in his original spot again when he points that Bono is able to do so much yet still seem like a piece of shit.
