For most kids, the world is a strange and mysterious place. Add in a few highly active imaginations and it's possible that all of what happens in the town South Park is real, except it's being told from the kids' exaggerated point of view. Kenny dying, for instance, might just be their overreactions to him being clumsy and getting hurt frequently.

Basically, the idea behind this theory is that Kenny isn't immortal, but he does have a unique ability to regenerate. It states that time then warps around him in a supernatural way and the whole town of South Park has somehow gotten wrapped up in his regenerative time warping phenomenon. Of course, the boys did once age up to fourth grade, but they've been stuck there ever since.

For Kenny's family, it's tough to say which is harder, to have a son that routinely dies or to have to pay those funeral expenses time and time again. According to this theory, that's why Kenny's family is so poor. They've had to pay for dozens of funerals for their son, only to have him come back to life and die again each time.

Kenny, Cartman, Kyle, And Stan Represent The Four Horsemen

In this theory, Cartman represents Conquest and Kenny represents Death, they're the two obvious ones. Then Kyle is War being he is so often the one fighting with Cartman and the world at large. Stan is Famine because without him, the rest of the group would be starved. This one is a bit more of a stretch but Stan is often the leader, protagonist, and voice of reason, so it kind of works.
