Trey and Matt have been asked about their international viewers before, and they say that it's an American show for American viewers, and everyone else is just out of luck. So unfortunately, that's how it is to be someone overseas. Sometimes translators actually rewrite jokes for shows (as I believe they do with The Simpsons, such as when a pun won't literally translate), so I wouldn't have been surprised if when I was in Costa Rica they changed Britney's New Look to be about a Hispanic star experiencing a similar downfall. That wasn't the case though; instead, Latin Americans were just expected to know who Britney Spears is. South Park is too timely that everyone's better off just doing their research than trying to tweak it for different countries. And it's sad because the story in The Poor Kid is so timeless that it could have been done in season 1, but one little running gag unfortunately leaves other countries in awkward confusion.
Well said, Flimpsons.
I'm a Kiwi who understands American humour and is up-to-date with American current events so I guess I'm the minority
