A new fad from Japan called “Chinpokomon” is sweeping South Park, and all the kids want to collect them. They play a Chinpokomon video-game and attend a Chinpokomon convention, but there seems to be a sinister purpose behind it all. The parents try to save their children by inventing fads to distract them.
Gerald: You see, son, fads come and go. And this 'Chinpokomon' is obviously nothing more than a fad. You don't have to be a part of it. In fact, you can make an even stronger statement by saying to your peers, 'I'm not going to be a part of this fad, because I'm an individual.' Do you understand?
Kyle: Yes. Yes, I do, Dad. Now let me tell you how it works in the real world. In the real world, I can either get a Chinpokomon, or I can be the only kid without one, which singles me out, and causes the other kids to make fun of me and kick my ass.
Gerald: Hmmm. Good point; here's $10.
Stan: Dude! The video game gave Kenny a seizure.
Cartman: Cool! This game rules!
Chinpokomon Executive: You are American?
Chinpokomon Executive: Ohhh, you must have very big penis!
Red: Excuse me, I was just asking you what your up to with these toys.
Chinpokomon Executive: Nothing, we are very simple people with very small penis. Mr. Hosik's penis is especially small!
Mr. Hosik: So small.
Chinpokomon Executive: We cannot achieve so much with such small penis, but you American wow, penis so big, so big penis!
Red: Well aah.. I guess it is pretty good size.
Bill Clinton: My fellow Americans, I wish to address the concerns many of us have over the growing number of Japanese military bases forming in the United States. The new Japanese emperor, Hirohito, has made our own children into fighter pilots who will soon fly to Hawaii and attack Pearl Harbor. I spoke with Mr. Hirohito this morning, and he assured me that I have a very large penis. He said it was mammoth, dinosauric, and absolutely dwarfed his penis, which, he assured me, was nearly microscopic in size. My penis, he said, was most likely one of the biggest on the planet. I applaud Mr. Hirohito in his honesty. Thank you.

The Chinpokomon fad resembles the Pokemon craze that swept the US in the late 1990's.
