Trivia

  • The theory of possible election fraud [1] is referenced throughout the episode.
  • The Hummer Salesman is having a difficult time selling Hummers, due to their expense and extremely low fuel economy.
  • General Tso's name is a running gag referencing General Tso's chicken, a dish served in North American Chinese restaurants.
  • The crowd sitting behind Barack Obama during his election speech were replicated in the episode, including the "Hair Flag Lady", who went viral. [2]
  • When Butters Stotch is hospitalized, his impaired speech is similar to Kenny's muffled speech. However, the boys can understand Kenny, but not Butters.
  • Out of the three people or groups Cartman claims cannot be trusted, Butters could be counted as the most loyal as he underwent extreme measures to keep Cartman's plan a secret, and only gave up after Kyle threatened to inform his father.
  • Kenny only died once during this season in the episode "I Should Have Never Gone Ziplining".

References to Popular Culture
