The second episode of season 14 opened with the unbanning of an infamous book: J.D. Salinger’s The Catcher in the Rye. Mr. Garrison tells the children of South Park Elementary that the vulgar and disgusting publication is now allowed in the school’s curriculum, and that everyone is expected to read the first three chapters by the following day. Enthralled at the notion of this wonderfully sinister book, Eric Cartman pleads for the class to begin reading once he has the book in his hands.
The next scene has Stan and Kyle discussing the impending disappointment as they draw toward the end of the novel. When Cartman busts through Kyle’s bedroom door, he’s infuriated by the fact that he just got tricked into reading an entire book for nothing. Out of anger for the pathetic book that was somehow banned, the four boys decide to write their own ban-worthy publication, putting Catcher in the Rye to shame.
The title of the work is Scrotie McBoogerballs, and when Stan’s parents discover it, they vomit while reading its contents. Stan is frantic once he discovers the book missing, so the four friends conspire to blame Butters, in anticipation of the trouble they will get in for writing such despicable material. To their surprise, Butters gets famous and turns into a complete modernized novelist. All is well for little Leopold, especially when his second book, the Poop that Took a Pee, gets even better reviews than the first. But, when a crazed fan is inspired by the book to kill the Kardashian sisters, Leopold Stotch cries in remorse, until Kyle is given the chance to explain why it’s best to just stick with television.
