This article contains plot details about an upcoming episode.
Angry celebrities and violent ginger kids are after the goo of the Islamic prophet Muhammad in order to become immune to slander. To add to the mess, the celebrities activate Mecha Streisand and threaten to destroy South Park and all anyone wants to know is, “Who is Eric Cartman’s father?”
The episode begins with a flashback of Mitch Conner in the Vietnam War, then it goes to the present time. Where Cartman is questioning Mr. Garrison & Mr. Hat about his father's true identity, Mr. Garrison refuses to tell, so Cartman goes to Dr. Mephisto instead.
Meanwhile, the Gingers demand to see if the person in the teddy bear costume is really Muhammad, so they unzip the costume to reveal it is actually Santa Claus. Stan tells them they made a promise to Jesus that Muhammad would stay in the U-haul, but before they could do anything, Mecha-Streisand appears and starts destroying South Park. Meanwhile, the Super Best Friends are trying to come up with a way to destroy Mecha-Streisand, while Buddha is still snorting coke and Jesus is watching porn, after she rages through the town and destroys many buildings along with several residents from the series' history. They decide to help get on the Super Best Friends Power Cycles, which are Segways. Cartman shows up at Dr. Mephisto with Mitch Conner disguised as a stereotypical black guy trying to get into Dr. Mephisto's lab. Meanwhile Mecha-Streisand is destroying South Park and ends up squashing Pip. Stan, Kyle and Kenny immediately go to Mephisto's lab after coming up with an idea to clone Muhammad so that all that the gingers and the celebrities receive the power never to be offended again, however Cartman still demands to know who is father is but they clone Muhammad first. Then Cartman and Kyle get into a debate about which is more important, Cartman's Father or Muhammad? The gingers end up capturing Muhammad, the boys and Dr. Mephisto, while Cartman is in a tunnel and then sees that Scott Tenorman is back.
The Super Best Friends pacify Mecha-Streisand by having Krishna adopt the form of Neil Diamond and providing her the opportunity to perform a duet with him.
The celebrities get Muhammad first, and Tom Cruise finally becomes able to never be insulted again. But the gingers then surround the entire town until they get Muhammad too, while meanwhile Cartman confronts Scott Tenorman once again, where it is revealed Scott was in a mental institution for several months while finding out all the information about Cartman. Scott then forces the town's residents to tell Cartman who his father really is. Scott's father was actually a Denver Bronco and that so was Cartman's, making them half-brothers. It also ironically means that Cartman had their father killed and fed him to Scott. So Scott forces Cartman to eat chili, but the Super Best Friends break in and free Cartman and fight the celebrities and gingers, while Stan unintentionally mocks on Tom Cruise once again when Seaman jumps on his back, revealing he could still be mocked on. Tom asks Rob Reiner how he could still be made fun of if he had Muhammad's Goo. Kyle says that there is no goo. He starts to give the traditional 'I learned something today' speech, but the entire speech is censored. Jesus adds his part to the speech, which is also censored, Santa as well.
The town works on re-building itself, and Cartman is crying over his father, but instead of grieving that he had him killed, he is sad that he is a ginger, Mitch cheers him up by saying that he's also half Denver Bronco which makes Cartman stop crying. Tom Cruise cries and wishes he could never be mocked on again, Kyle says that he knows a place where no people are around to make fun of him. The final scene is on the Moon, where Cruise's dead body is seen next to the dead whale from Free Willzyx. Just like in the aforementioned episode, the credits roll over the scene of the corpses of Tom Cruise and the whale—proving that he's not even safe here..
