The Secrets of
"Tegridy Farms"

"Hyeah, and at five bucks a pop we're gonna be rich!" - Forewhadowing, as Butters didn't say "I" as he would have if he acted alone. The other person he could have included in that "we" was Cartman, since he's done a lot of things with Cartman in the past. And that's how it turned out.

Randy lists off some national problems that now affect South Park: school shootings, pieces of shit taking Ambien and tweeting, priests raping kids. The episdode started off like the first and third did this week: with a school shooting.

Stan now lives an hour away from school, but still goes there. Surely there are schools closer to the farm than South Park is?The Marshes sell their house again. First time they did this was in Seeason 15's "You're Getting Old." Grandpa used to live in the 4th bedroom, but is now at the retirement home.

Over the summer, anti-vaping ads would play on radio and TV describing how vaporizers have begun appearing with flavors kids love added to get more kids to vape, which could lead to actual smoking later on.

"Hemp" varieties - Purple Skunky Kush, Super Hindu Haze, Green Willy Stranger, Catatonic Tegridy Bud, Tegridy Jungle Bud

Herbalaon, a Vestin device.

The numbers here have meaning. If you rewrite 42:0 as 4:20, PM, presumably, you get the time of day best suited for smoking a joint. If you write 76:2 as 7.62 (mm), you get the caliber of an AK-47.

"I-I didn't know chickens wore suspenders." - The only person or thing wearing suspenders in this episode was the farmer Joe, so it seems Towelie had a fight with Joe about selling the farm before Randy saw Joe talkiing to the Vape representative. Towelie would think Joe a chicken for selling out like that.

Five, $5, $5 footlong. - Subway Sandwiches offers some footlong subs for $5, and this is the ditty they use in their commercuals for them.

One of the Peppermint Hippo strippers shows up here as Ms. Blaze. She was first seen in "Lil Criime Stoppers."

Ronan Farrow, son to Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, and a reporter for The New Yorker. He helped uncover the Harvey Weinstein, Eric Schneiderman, and Les Moonves sexual abuse allegations.

Vaping Man is a spoof of the Kool-Aid Man from the 1960s and '70s used in Kool-Aid commercials. The Kool-Aid Man would walk through walls and destroy them too.

Cartman and Butters have thought this out pretty well, as they're always one step ahead of Kyle in talking to the right peoole.

Tegridy Farms started out as a hemp farm, but ended the episode as a marijuana farm. During the episode you can see Randy growing outdoor crops (hemp) and indoor ones (marijuana), although marijuana can also be grown out in the open in small fields, as seen on newscasts showing illegal marijuana groves hidden in the woods and among other plants.

Reversals of Fortune: Mr. Hankey and Towelie

Mr. Hankey come into the show in Season 1's "Mr. Hankey, The Christmas Poo." as Kyle's fecal friend who visits every Hannukah to spread gifts to kids who eat their fiber. He added Christmas because the two holidays are so close to each other. He began to appear in malls everywhere in Season 3, portrayed by adults who needed holiday work. Kyle hated the idea and exposed the mall Hankeys as fakes. Mr. Hankey found a female talking poo, married her, and had kidds with her - the Nuggets. Mr. Hankey took up residence in the town's sewers during the off-seson and covered the town in poo when Hollywood came calling to set up a film festival there. Eventually, he teamed up with Santa to bring gifts to the kids in Iraq. This season, he held a couple of positions in the City Council, but his incendiary tweets cost him his family and all those jobs, and he was run out of town. He's now in Springfield, home of the Simpsons.

Towelie appeared in Season 5 as a failed government experiment, supplanted by a stronger, more effective towel. His downfall was that he always got high and wandered off base. He defeated the replacement towel and has made appearances here and there. Cartman called him the worst character ever. This year he returns as an agricultural inspector for hemp and weed farms, as would be natural for a character like him. He and Randy got upset at the Big Vape shop for dealing vape pens to grammar-school kids, so they teamed up to destroy the vape shop. He's likely living with Randy at Tegridy Farms, making sure Randy is making the best hemp and marijuana products possible for Randy's customers.
