It all started with a pube. Cartman meets his match in this truly evil episode, where ninth-grader Scott Tenorman tricks him into thinking he’s reached puberty. When Cartman tries to get his own back, Scott numerously embarrasses Cartman in front of his friends. Revenge consumes Cartman leading to a sickening culminationn involving chili con carne…and Radiohead. Utterly awesome.
