It all started when a New Jersey family moved next door to the Marsh family and got an invite to dinner. Theresa freaked on the family, starting cursing, and used the term “muff cabbage.” We still don’t know what that means, but one of us is going to use it every day. The characters’ only explanation of the term was, “It’s a Jersey thing.” Soon, the town discovered that it was overrun with people from Jersey. The Jersey folk were drinking beers and throwing the empty bottles around, punching each other, being vulgar, freaking out for no reason, and humping in public, which was pretty accurate.
Sheila Broflovski revealed to her friends that she was from New Jersey, and both she and Kyle mutated into Jersey folk to better defend their South Park friends. Kyle stopped Snooki from raping Cartman midway through the act, earning Cartman’s gratitude, which is probably a first for Kyle. That part proved George Carlin’s theory that anything can be funny, even rape. Watching that Snookie monster rape Cartman was the funniest part of the episode.
Behind the Les Miserables-style barricade, the always stupid Randy Marsh appealed to the governor of California (can’t spell his name), asking him to help them stop the Jersey folk from taking over South Park, because they had already taken everything east of South Park. The governor refused, saying that there were two states between Colorado and California, so it wasn’t his problem yet. So Randy sent a tape of an episode of Jersey Shore to Osama bin Laden to convince him of the threat. We chucked at this, because this is exactly where militant Muslims would agree with most of us. Al-Qaeda came through, sending suicide bombers into the advancing army of Jersey-ers. It was really messed up to see Randy and the town rewarding and celebrating bin Laden, but fortunately an American soldier appeared and shot him. Randy seemed to look confused for a second before shouting, “We got him!”
