I though that was a damn fine episode. Not a lot to say, but to kick off the 8th season it just demonstrates that the show is still on the up. South park is one of the few shows that just keeps getting funnier  big grin

OK, I may have got beat to it, but I still think my translation is better.

My translation of the song is:

I have an awesome wang,
and hair on my balls.
Is that sound a sarubobo?
No!  It's a ninja!

Hey hey let's go, fight!
The important thing is to protect my balls
I am evil, so let's fighting
Let's fighting love!
Let's fighting love!


This song is kind of stupid,
I don't get it,
The English is all gibberish,
OK? We do it all the time!

It's an obvious parody of the Engrish that always makes its way into songs in Japanese TV shows.

In case you were wondering, this is a sarubobo:

It's a weird little good luck charm from Gifu prefecture.  This guy has put one on his motorcycle for luck.  I have no idea why it gets a shout-out.

Also, the two characters that appear when the show fades in from the commercial read "Chinpo", which means penis.  Which is why the chinopokomon were so funny.

They just posted the lyrics up in the FAQ section at South Park Studios, so here's the official translation, or so it's supposed to be:

Suba-ra-shi chin chin mono (Wonderful "chin chin" thing) Kintama no kame aru (There are hairs at balls) Sore no oto saru bo bo (That's sound "saru bo bo" ) Iye! Ninja ga imasuuuuuuuu (Iye! Ninja is here!) Hey hey let's go kenka suru (Hey hey let's go fighting!) Taisetsu no mono protect my balls! (Important thing, protect my balls!) Boku ga warui so let's fighting... (I am bad, so let's fighting...) Let's fighting love! Let's fighting love! Kono uta chotto baka (This song is a little stupid) Wake ga wakaranai (This isn't make sense) Eigo ga mecha-kucha (Engrish is fucked up) Daijobu - we do it all the time! (It's OK! We do it all the time!)

I still haven't seen the episode myself yet, but hopefully I will have by Friday...

Thanks for the translations.  Canned egg's  seems like it makes more sense to me.  How much Japanese do you know to be able to translate it?

All the translations seem about equally accurate, but I tried to make mine more... uh... natural in English.  The other translations are so literal, they just don't come out sounding like real English.  Translation is an art.

And I don't have great Japanese, but I studied it in college and I probably know about as much as Trey Parker.

Also, the lyrics for the song on the sarubobo line read "sore no oto" and that's what is sung, but the subtitle says "sono oto."  They mean pretty much the same thing.

I think the whole point is that the translations are SUPPOSED to be bad. It happens all the time when people translate from Japanese to English, and Trey was just trying to sattarise that. I mean, you can't get more ironic than the line "This isn't make sense."  tongue

Yeah, you're right.  That's exactly why the official translation is so broken.  It's much more amusing than a straight up translation, from the Engrish perspective, but if you're coming to this thread to find out what's really going on in the song, it helps to know that the "wonderful 'chin chin' thing" refers to the wang, and that yes, "there are hairs at balls" means what you think it does.  And I've translated stuff for a living before, so I can't resist fixing it up.

I had no idea about the Sarubobo or that Chinpokemon meant.. Yeah. ^^ Your knowledge skillz are appreciated! Trey is very knowledgeable about the Japanese language and culture.. That's why his Pokemon satire was award winning and so many others weren't. His was insightful. Others were.. "LOLOL Pikachue is teh ghey"

New episode this Wednesday, of course.
Episode 803: Up the Down Steroid

Timmy is crushed when he discovers that Jimmy has been using steroids to increase his chances of winning. Meanwhile, Cartman feels he can easily take first place competing against Jimmy. He just has to convince the qualifying committee that he's handicapped.

Take into account the recent "Cartman Crying" animation and now the "Cartman Making Faces in the Mirror" scene in the CM for Up The Down Steroid. The way Matt and Trey animate faces now seems to have changed slightly. Well.. I won't complain if Towelie comes back someday...

Tonight's episode was decent even though it was fairly predictable.  I just find Jimmy funny, especially when he's on 'roids.  The show pushed the taste limit as always with Cartman pretending to be retarded and Jimmy beating up his girlfriend.  It's a good thing that I'll laugh at anything.  There was a nice rip on the usual suspects from baseball as well.  This ep. wasn't near the same level as last week's, but it had its moments.

I liked this episode better than last weeks', honestly... pushing the limit worked out fine. And predictable? Try the "wardrobe malfunction" line.

...this one was classic Cartman. Great... and I loved that Cartman referenced The Passion to insult Jews again.

...and as a Special Olympics volunteer, I wish they had those events.   wink I keed.

I'm re-watching the episode now, and I'm shocked that they had the audacity to make fun of McGuwire, Bonds, and Giambi. I am so surprised (and happy) that they ripped into said steroid-freaks.

Is it just me, or does Kenny have no lines at all in these recent episodes?

I hope the rest of season 8 is as good as these two episodes, because they were both classics. Timmy at the guidance counselor? Priceless.

And what is the point of Kenny anymore? Why doesn't he ever die or act poor or help the boys out with the meanings of dirty words these days?

This episode was horrible! It wasn't funny at all! I was really disappointed because last week's was so great. The only good thing was when Jimmy confessed he was taking steroids and then the cut to McGwire, Bonds and Giambi, even though they did the exact same thing when Butters' parents were talking about harming loved ones, with shots of Conduit and O.J.

Yes, I thought the same thing. That was very reminiscent of the Butters episode, though still very funny. This episode wasn't as endlessly quoteable as some others[for better or worse], but Timmy's attempt to talk to Mr. Mackey and the general melodrama of Jimmy's situation were very funny. All in all, a good episode. It redeemed itself through another failure on Cartman's part. Not that the kid should never get a break, but having him suceed at making a boy eat his own parents? He gets more evil by the season, if not the second.

I think the people who didn't like this didn't see the anti-drug films in school in which the hero would succumb to drugs, a friend would try to help him, and he'd become hilariously over-the-top abusive to his friends and family.

A pretty good episode. The montage with Cartman practicing being "special" to the music from Scarface/GTA3 was awesome.

I liked it. Wasn't as good as last week's but still good. This episode was more like something out of season 5, rather than the last two seasons. It's not a bad thing, it just seemed like it was trying a bit too hard to be offensive at times. That being said I've never seen the antidrug films OC mentioned, which probably added alot to the episode.

i loved this week's episode. I think its great how Parker and Stone can make fun of things like Cripples, retards, priests, & jews that are otherwise "off-limits". 8/10

Ooh by the way the preview for next week's looks hilarious. Can't wait til Weds!

New episode tonight!!

Episode 804:
The Passion of the Jew


Kyle finally sees "The Passion" and is forced to admit Cartman has been right all along. Meanwhile many of the film's hardcore fans band together under Cartman's leadership to carry out it's message.



Sounds interesting, seems that Cartman's Passion-esque digs at Kyle might become a running joke of some kind.

This one looks like it has a lot of potential. Cartman has been mentioning "The Passion" for a few episodes now, it'll be nice to see how it pays off. I'm looking forward to seeing it tonight.

So then what's episode 802?

I would also like to repeat it: this one's got potential. It also seems like it might be a two-parter if Cartman starts another group(like the church cult to get a million dollars).

Good to see a new Kyle centric episode. I like how they sank in the top edges of his eyes, rather than using the usual "Magical vanishing South Park eyebrows", makes him look all the more horrified.      laff

This one was entertaining, it had some really big laughs.  I was actually somewhat uncomfortable for some reason during the crucifixion sequence , but then they toss a picture of Alan Alda in there.  That really had me laughing.  The Mel Gibson parts were funny as well.  Good episode I say.

It was a hillarious episode.  The crucifixion sequence was also a little uncomfortable to me as well, but at the same time I think it had some great animation during it as well.  If you noticed, you could see that they actually had some hand drawn animation in there overlaying the traditional south park animation.  Also the funniest part with Mel Gibson was when he ran up to the camera with Braveheart face paint on and made that one facial expression for no reason.  It had me rolling!

I thought this episode was great. The crucifiction scene didn't bother me as much as when Jimmy beat up his girlfriend and mum in the previous episode. Mel Gibson was great, I couldn't stop laughing the first time I saw him in his 'Braveheart' facepaint. The message at the end was very good I thought. Being the nitpick I am though, my knowledge of German did get me irrititated with the improper pronounciation of "Juden" and "Reich". But that's just me  tongue

I still think they should have made this into a two-part episode. It ended way too suddenly. Not as good as the last two, but there's nothing more refreshing than watching Mel Gibson shit all over Cartman's face. Immature humor is the best.

This was.. GREAT. Mel Gibson in the Daffy Duck Carmen Miranda getup! A cute litle boy dressed as Hitler[Cartman WOULD mispronounce stuff, he isn't German anyway]! Some great animation that makes me wish the boys would make another show that didn't have to always look like it was made of paper cutouts! A Baseketball reference! And of course, yet another episode that put forth its message and made me think: "That's what I've been saying all along!" If you're gonna be any faith, Christian or Jewish or Catholic[like me], you gotta celebrate what your spiritual leaders did during their lives as much as your honor their sacrifices. This was a great success as an episode, and aside from Mel's voice[it didn't sound right.. Yeah I KNOW Celebrity voices are impersonated.. POORLY, but it was off in a bad way, not a funny way like Saddam's voice], I greatly enjoyed it. And the Chappelle's show afterward took some of the heavy edge off with gay landscaping antics.

What happened to everyone? Well, new ep this week. As always.
Ep 805: You Got F'ed Up the A

Stan "gets served" when a group of kids from Orange County challenge him to a dance-off in an all-new episode of "South Park." It's up to Stan to put a team of South Park's best dancers together to compete against a rival troupe from Orange County. While Butters has won awards for his dancing, he refuses to help Stan out, as he hasn't been able to dance since the tragic death of eight audience members at his last competition.
