    According to this theory, Officer Barbrady is only the town idiot pretending to be a police officer and the residents play along because they feel bad for him. There's quite a bit of evidence to support this, including the facts that there are other "real" police that people go to when something really bad actually happens, no one takes him seriously, and there are several instances were prisoners have just walked out of his jail.

    Cartman Is Deeply Self-Loathing

    For this theory to be true, Cartman has to be far more intelligent and self-aware than he gets credit for. It says that the reason for his outlandish behavior, especially towards Jews and Kyle, is that he's lashing out against the one person who constantly reminds him of who really is: an insecure kid who is uncomfortable with himself. Kyle is relentlessly and brutally truthful with Cartman, but rather become a better person, Cartman externalizes his self-loathing, resulting in hate for anyone different from himself, whether they're Jewish people or gingers.

    One of the greatest mysteries of South Park is why anyone is still friends with Cartman. He's proven time and time again that he's calculating, bigoted, and downright vindictive, especially when it comes to Kyle. This theory explains that while he is all of those things, he's so often correct that he's worth keeping around. He may just destroy a life or two, but he's been known to be right about a great deal of major things that no one else believed, until he proved them wrong of course.

    Caitlyn Jenner Is Old News Thanks To Mr. Garrison

    South Park isn't generally the most tolerant place, so it's striking that the whole town was eager to embrace Caitlyn Jenner. How is it that Kyle is the sole person in this "podunk mountain town" who rejects the praise for the transgender Jenner? Because in South Park, Mr. Garrison paved the way a decade before, transitioning to female before ultimately transitioning back.
