Will the Season 11 DVD still feature the Imaginationland episodes? For you, of course. How could they not be?
What do you think about chemtrails? Not as good as Taco Bell but way better than Del Taco.
Hey, wait, how did the terrorists enter Imaginationland? Through their own Imagination Doorway of course. Come on, use your imagination.

Are terrance and philip benefitting from America's recession? The Candian Loonie and Toonie currently fair well against the American dollar but when Terrance and Philip factor in Health Care, the declining housing market in America, and the high price Kraft Dinner they are not seeing that much of a difference in their lifestyle.
In the episode 'Jewbilee', why does Moses look like an orange and yellow mask? Where'd THAT come from? So I am guessing you’ve never seen Moses before. Or the movie Tron either.
I'm in a heated debate: In the deleted scene from "The List", does Butters call Cartman Ugly Bugly or Ugly Mugly? Ugly Bugly… How did you see a deleted scene? Hm... they've changed the site a bit, so the deleted scene has been deleted again. :)

On "Good times With Weapons", how did you get the right Hirigana / Katakana for the japanese subtitles? Do either of you actually know japanese? There are many members on staff here including Trey who know how to speak, write and enjoy all things Japanese.

From the commentary track of Superbad, Seth Rogen alleges that South Park gets away with its content being aired is due to a deal with Satan. Any truth to this? What Satan and South Park do together is our business.

What is an EIEIO? Here's a response directly from our EIEIO:

EIEIO = E-Mail, Internet, Electronic Information Officer. In reality, it is System Administrator and (in my case, with my skills), a systems design and implementation person.

This question was previously answered on August 28, 2007 and on March 28, 2002. The first interview with J.J. Franzen is missing from South Park Studios, but this is what he said back in 2002:

Any final messages to the kids out there. Actually, someone was asking about becoming a system administrator. He wanted to know what the "EIEIO" stood for in the credits.

JJ: Actually my brother originally came up with the idea. He was working as a tech guy at some startup company, and they asked him what he wanted his title to be. So he basically said he wanted to be the "Email, Internet, Electronic Information Officer." That way he could have "EIEIO" on his business card. I thought that was pretty cool, so it's my little homage to him.
