I'm having a hard time understanding why anyone would need "further proof" that Josh's character was anything but a reference/allusion/parody of Hannibal Lecter. The scene at the end of him in the exact same restraints being wheeled in should clear any doubt. Mind you it may not fall under 'culteral references' if it is merely parodying the character.

I have, that's why I said I'm having a hard time figuring out how that has anything to do with referencing material that exists within the episode. Given the context, the above policies make absolutely no sense. Dakmordian (talk) 20:50, 19 May 2009 (UTC)
You're right, it's pretty obvious for the most of us. But the rules are the rules. And that makes sense. In other cases, there might be a million different opinions about the one and the same thing "obviously" being a parody of a million different things. To avoid these speculation wars, the thin red line is kept quite strictly here, and so the rule is: for anything that is not a simple fact within a fictional story ("Kyle wears a green hat"), but is a more complex story, symbol or thesis ("Kyle wears this green hat because he likes it"), you have to find a source elsewhere that you can cite. Then you can put it in.--JakobvS (talk) 15:46, 9 August 2009 (UTC)
And couldnt the seen on the boat be a parody of The talented mr rippley where a character is killed exactly the same way cartman attempted.And if no one else has noticed the last scene where josh is on the phone is from silence of the lambs also.Where lector rings up starling and says "Im having a old friend for dinner".--Chaos2501 (talk) 04:04, 29 January 2010 (UTC)
