Chili Con Carnival
The climactic ending of “Scott Tenorman Must Die” is Cartman’s legendary Chili Con Carnival which is held in his front yard. It is the result of Cartman’s revenge scheme and serves as the venue for having a pony bite off Scott’s weiner. However, Scott Tenorman is warned by Kyle and Stan of a wiener eating pony that will be at the carnival so to counter, he plans on putting the pubes of every kid in town into his chili and feed it to Cartman, but Cartman has a plan of his own.
Upon arrival, instead of going to see the pony, Cartman and Scott begin tasting one another’s chili. Amid the crowd’s snickering, Cartman comments on how good the chili is and once he is almost finished, Scott attempts to reveal the secret pubic ingredients of the chili. However, before he can do so, Cartman cuts him off and explains that he switched the tainted chili with Chef’s chili.
Cartman then reveals that he predicted Kyle and Stan would warn Scott Tenorman of his plan. He also planned that Scott would avoid the pony for fear of getting his weiner bitten off and send his parents to deal with it instead. The previous night, Cartman informed farmer Denkins that violent pony killers were in the area knowing that he shoots trespassers on site. Sure enough, Scott’s parents showed up and Denkins shot them for trespassing. Cartman stole the bodies during the police report and proceeded to cut them up and put them in his own chili which Scott then ate.
After Scott the reality of the situation sets in, Scott begins to cry tears of unfathomable sadness. During his grief, that band, Radiohead shows up and witnesses him crying. They declare that he is a cry baby and is totally not cool before leaving.
Cartman occasionally references the Chili Con Carnival in order to intimidate others or to get his way. It has come up in “Terrance and Phillip: Behind the Blow”, “Cartoon Wars: Part 2” and “Here Comes the Neighborhood”
The events from the Chili Con Carnival would further unravel in “201” where Scott Tenorman reveals that he is Cartman’s half-brother and that he caused the death of his own father. Also, Cartman finds out he is half ginger which he is much more pissed about.
