The Harvest is a human sacrifice ritual that follows the principle "Sacrifice in March, corn have plenty starch." The way they did this is (as stated in the episode) in ancient times they found a pretty girl, built her up and then sacrificed her. Then in the "old days" they chose someone at random by lottery and stoned them to death. Now, they choose a girl, make her famous, then kill her in order to receive a great corn harvest. It was shown that most of America participates.
Britney Spears was sacrificed in "Britney's New Look", and at the end of the episode it is implied that Miley Cyrus will be sacrificed next.
- This entire plot of "The Harvest" is a parody of The Lottery.
