Restaurants Try to Figure Out How Cartman's Burgers Taste So Good (VIDEO)

'South Park' - 'Ass Burgers'After the mid-season finale that saw Stan turning ten and literally seeing the entire world as crap, everyone wondered how Parker and Stone would follow it up. With this 'South Park' (Wed., 10PM ET on Comedy Central), we saw.

They didn't cop out and pretend it never happened, but they kind of did do the next best thing. They basically found a way to reset everything back to the way it was, leaving Stan with a little secret to explain it away.

That said, we loved it when Stan met Morpheus and the other leather-clad cynics like himself who saw the world for what it really was. And rather than a pill to see the real world, they used alcohol to see the fake one everyone wants us to see.

While this was going on, the other boys were getting into a fairly standard storyline. Thanks to a vaccine shot, Mr. Mackey decided that Stan has Asperger's Syndrome, which of course sounds more like a** burgers ... so that's what Cartman heard.

When he tried to get diagnosed with it as well by filling the back of his underwear with hamburgers, he inadvertently created a great-tasting burger. The heads of the other fast food restaurants figured out the secret when they said it was as if someone took the combined flavors of their foods and injected it as a gas into Cartman's burgers.

It's all perfect 'South Park' fodder, but we got it through a distant view as the creators worked to resolve the corner they'd written themselves into with Stan. His parents arbitrarily got together, because sometimes when you get older, you just settle for what's familiar and comfortable.

The only secret now is that Stan picked up on the fact that alcohol makes him see the world a little brighter; by which we mean the way he used to. So they're keeping him being a cynic technically, which could come into play later.

We are going to miss that duck president, though.
