Jimmy, I'vebeen thinking.
We've got to patentthe fishsticks joke.
Patent ?Yeah, dude.
There's lots of peopleout there using our joke
on their shows.
We should begetting compensated.
Well Eric, that's reallynot how jokes work.
I mean, you know
we should just be happythat the joke is so popular
and made a lotof people laugh.
Dude, fuck that !
Maybe you were writing jokesfor people's amusement
but I don't work for free.
I'm gonnatalk to a lawyer
so we get what'scoming to us.
Jimmy, exactly what partof the fishdicks joke
did Cartman write ?
Well... He didn't actuallywrite any of it...
He just uh...
Let me guess-you wrote the joke
and Cartman just laid onthe couch eating Twizzlers.
Actually itwas potato chips.
I knew it !
Don't let that fat turdwalk all over you, Jimmy !
Stand up for yourself !
Well I mean,he was in the room.
Then justgive him half.
I like you, Jimmy.
But you're notgonna win this.
Consider yourself luckyhe's only asking for half.
Craig, if Cartmandidn't do anything
then he doesn't deserveany of the credit.
And and if I had wheels,I'd be a wagon.
No dude, screw that !
Jimmy, if Cartman didn'twrite the joke
then definitely don't signany patent papers with him !
Just say 'Cartman,
'you didn't have anythingto do with this joke,
and you know it !'
Just give him half.
Actually, It Was Potato Chips
While Cartman tries to cash in on the joke's popularity, his authorship comes into question.
