Cartman posts the kids' penis sizes on the bulletin board. He throws a fit and once again finds himself in the principal's office. This time he gets sent to anger management therapy.


At South Park Elementary, Butters was discussing about what he saw in the Terminator movie. Stan and Kyle corrected Butters about it, but he misunderstands everything the two boys say. Then Cartman comes into the cafeteria throwing another apoplectic fit and threatening to kill everybody as he rants about the results of the students' annual school physicals, claiming that teachers have posted a list of all the boys' penis sizes in the hall for everyone to see. Believing the results to be inaccurate (especially since he is at the bottom of the list), he measures every boy's penis and posts his own findings in the hall. He is soon called to Principal Victoria's office, where he learns that the first list actually showed how much every student had grown in height since the previous year's physical. To make matters worse, Cartman has found that his penis really is the smallest of all the boys in the school. At a consultation session with a psychiatrist, Cartman is tested to see how he deals with anger. While initially showing no emotion during the session when the psychiatrist tries to incite him into anger with fat jokes, Cartman silently uses an iPhone to send fake chat logs and a fake police report that indicate the psychiatrist was involved in an affair with a 14-year-old over the internet. The psychiatrist's wife is notified, calling her husband before committing suicide over the phone. Cartman continues to lie to himself about being "big-boned".

Soon after, Cartman is sent to an anger management class along with a member of the Tea Party, a wigger (Wayne D), a Marine, Tuong Lu Kim, "Tall Goth" and several others. It soon becomes apparent that every person in the class has issues with their penis size. Meanwhile, Randy Marsh gives a talk to the fourth grade class about human sexual behaviour and presents a ridiculously complicated formula for calculating "adjusted penis size," or "T.M.I.". Soon afterward, the Surgeon General of the United States presents her own talk to correct Randy's inaccurate information, giving her own bizarre formula that prompts Randy to beat her up in front of the class and ending up at anger management as well. Randy and Cartman incite the group to riot against the federal government.

Take over a Federal Express shipping center, mistakenly believing it to be a government office, Randy names their group the "Pissed off and Angry Party" and presents their demands to a national television audience; the resignation of the Surgeon General, Obama's birth certificate, "mom's to stop trippin'", and to "fuck Kyle". The movement spreads around the country, with other FedEx locations being taken over. Even Butters joins in when he realizes that his T.M.I. is not as high as he thought according to the Surgeon General's new T.M.I. formula. In response, Cartman's psychiatrist develops a theory that the true source of everyone's anger is their embarrassment over their small penis sizes. After he informs the Surgeon General, she addresses the nation on TV. She says that although her formula for calculating T.M.I. is accurate, the national "average" value has been re-defined downward to 1.5 inches. The violent movement instantly breaks up, since every man involved now falls into the "above average" range - except for Cartman, whose penis is so small that it falls below even the new national average. Cartman's frustrated remarks are dismissed by the Pissed off and Angry Party's former members as they proclaim that "America is Back!"
