Better for you than potato chips.
Ooh, Jimmy look out, there's a black widow! Wow, thanks mom! You might'a saved my life! Dude, if I'm trying to be creative I can't eat fruit - Doesn't your mom have something more substantial to eat? You can check the freezer.

What are you Peterson, a gay fish? And now here he is, Jimmy Kimmel! Alright, hey how we all feeling tonight So let me ask the guys in the audience a question- Do you like fishsticks? Yes! Yes! Yes.
Huh what are you, gay fish? And so uh, hey Paul Do you like fishsticks, Paul? Uh Sure.
What are you Paul, a gay fish? So apparently more and more Americans are eating fishsticks- have you see this? Have you read about this? Loving fishsticks.
Kind of makes me wonder, you know? What is everybody, a gay fish? It is quite possibly the funniest joke ever conceived, and its origin is unknown.
The fishdicks joke crosses all borders all races all ages and ethnic groups and is slowly uniting our country.
In fact, the only person who appears to not get the joke is rapper Kanye West who becomes furious when people use the joke on him.
Yo' that is messed up, yo.
I am not gay.
And I sure as hell ain't no fish, alright? You really don't get it? Hey man, I'm a genius, alright.
I'm the most talented musician in the world.
If I was a homosexual or a fish, I would know! You're a rapper.
Yes! An entrepreneur.
And you like fish dicks.
You're a gay fish.
No I'm not no gay fish.
Just gay? I'm not gay and I'm not a fish.
Man! You are male.
Damn right I'm male! A male that likes fish dicks.
Yeah, I like fishsticks.
You like to put fish dicks in your mouth.
You're a gay fish.
Alright that does it! I'm gonna kick your motherfucking ass! And then it was on Leno and Jimmy Kimmel show! Dude, that's our joke on national television! We know, Cartman.
Nya-nya nya-nya nyaaa nya We are comedy writers and you guys aren't Ha-ha ha-ha haaaa-ha Jimmy, I've been thinking.
We've got to patent the fishsticks joke.
Patent? Yeah, dude.
There's lots of people out there using our joke on their shows.
We should be getting compensated.
Well Eric, that's really not how jokes work.
I mean, you know we should just be happy that the joke is so popular and made a lot of people laugh.
Dude, fuck that! Maybe you were writing jokes for people's amusement but I don't work for free.
I'm gonna talk to a lawyer so we get what's coming to us.
Jimmy, exactly what part of the fishdicks joke did Cartman write? Well He didn't actually write any of it He just uh Let me guess- you wrote the joke and Cartman just laid on the couch eating Twizzlers.
Actually it was potato chips.
I knew it! Don't let that fat turd walk all over you, Jimmy! Stand up for yourself! Well I mean, he was in the room.
Then just give him half.
What? I like you, Jimmy.
But you're not gonna win this.
Consider yourself lucky he's only asking for half.
Craig, if Cartman didn't do anything then he doesn't deserve any of the credit.
And and if I had wheels, I'd be a wagon.
No dude, screw that! Jimmy, if Cartman didn't write the joke then definitely don't sign any patent papers with him! Just say 'Cartman, 'you didn't have anything to do with this joke, and you know it!' Just give him half.
There are a lot of people out there making up rumors about me that are malicious and untrue! But I am going to prove once and for all I am not a fish.
Because I am a genius I have ascertained that fish have gills.
Doctor, do I have gills? He does not have gills.
You hear that, no gills.
So I can't be a fish.
And I'm a genius voice of a generation, so I'm not gay.
So that is that, alright, it's over.
Now are there any questions? Do you like fishsticks? Love 'em! You're a gay fish.
No, I'm not, ahghghgh!! Alright, recently Recently we've all come to know the fishsticks joke as probably the funniest, most awesome joke ever.
But who originally came up with it? Well, here's your answer- Joining us tonight, the brains behind the incredible fishsticks joke -- The one and only, Carlos Mencia! Yeah, Viva la Mexico! So Carlos, you've got a show on Comedy Central a stand up tour, where did you have time to come up with this classic joke? Well, you know, I was just kickin' it with my homies and my brain - you know my brain is always so full of ideas 'cuz I'm so funny and stuff So I was all like - "Hey Pepeeto, you like fishsticks?" And my homeboy says, 'Yeah Carlos y'know you're so funny'.
And then it just occurred to me, 'Oh man, you must be a gay fish, holmes!' That's just how I came up with it, mi amigos! Motherfucker! Jimmy, dude, did you see? Carlos Mencia is taking credit for our joke! Really? Yeah dude, I told you this would happen.
Now look, I got a lawyer to draw up some patent papers.
We've got to sign these so that people know that the joke belongs to you and me! Uh I don't know, Eric.
I really don't think I want to sign that, very much.
But Jimmy, some fat turd is taking credit for something he didn't do! Well, to be perfectly f-f-frank, Eric, I think I came up with a little bit more of the joke than you did.
What? Well, you know, I mean, I basically wrote the thing and you just kind of ate chips.
Jimmy, that's messed up.
We decided that day to write together.
Don't you remember? Hey Jimmy, you wanna hang out? Sorry, Eric, but I gotta write some jokes.
Unless you wanna team up or something? Team up? Okay, let's write some jokes together.
Here's some fishdicks guys, hope you like fishdicks.
"Do we like fishsticks?" What does she think we are, gay fish? Ha-ha! Ha-ha! Ooh, look out Jimmy, it's a black widow! Wow, thanks Eric! Is that Is that how it happened? Look, exactly who came up with which part of the joke isn't even relevant.
We had an agreement, Jimmy and if you wanna go back on that now well then, you're no better than a Jew.
I'm I'm sorry? It's cool man.
It's cool.
Here he is, ya'll! Give it up for Kanye West! Yo' uh, yo'.
Yo' woa, what the hell? Gay fish! Gay fish! Gay fish! Gay fish! Gay fish! Gay fish! Yo' fuck this noise yo'! It just doesn't make any sense, yo'! Why's everyone calling me a gay fish? Kanye, look, we all think it would be better if you would just drop it.
You know, I mean, if you don't get it you don't get it.
What you mean I don't get it, house? I'm a genius! I'll understand it, I just need to break it down, is all.
Now let's see something about fishsticks- Interacting with me, makes me gay fish Kanye, really-- Shut up! Alright what do we know about fishsticks They're breaded they're fried, they're frozen.
Then under me we have rapper genius Gay fish are homosexual they swim Is it because breaded has something to do with genius? Which swims? No, because you said you like fish dicks, Kanye.
Don't you get it? You see fish dicks is a play on words.
I don't need anyone telling me play on words I'm a motherfucking lyrical wordsmith motherfucking genius! Hey Kyle, can I talk to you for a second? Dude, get outta here, I'm peeing.
It's just I don't know what to do about Jimmy.
I'm starting to think he might try and Jew me out of my half of the fishsticks joke.
I just need you to teach me some Jew defensive moves, Kyle.
Because we really both did come up with it.
You know what, Cartman? I believe you.
You do? Yes.
I believe that you believe you helped write that joke.
That's how people like you work.
Your ego is so out of whack that it will do whatever it can to protect itself.
And people with a messed up ego can do these mental gymnastics to convince themselves they're awesome when really they're just douchebags.
But I'm sure I helped come up with the joke Didn't I? Hey Jimmy, what's up, dawg? Oh hey Eric! Just working on some jokes.
That's cool, you wanna write some together? Hey, that'd be great! I've always wanted to work with you.
You're really funny and you're totally not fat.
Cool, thanks, let's get to work.
Now let's see Something that's a play on words.
I dunno fishsticks.
You know, 'cuz dicks.
Hey, you're really onto something there! Hello Eric, I have some chips because you're totally not fat at all.
Oh thank you, Mrs.
Now let's see The setup could be "Do you like fishsticks?" Right, and then I say 'yeah' So then I can say 'What are you a gay fish?' Oh wow this is incredible! What is that? It's a dragon of some kind! Don't worry I can save you all! Hughgh!! Hey look, Eric killed a dragon! He's the most awesome kid in school! And he's not fat at all! Thanks you guys! Nope No, I definitely helped write the joke.
All I can hope is Jimmy doesn't try to Jew me over.
Is it perhaps that I'm fashionable and fishsticks are crunchy? Yo' Kanye, Kanye, we found 'em, money! Found who? You told us to track down whoever started the whole fishstick thang.
We found out who, dawg.
Come on, man, what is this man? What the fuck is going on man? Oh fuck, man, Kanye West - Oh no, oh shit, man okay look it wasn't me - I didn't really start the fishstick thing, alright? You just sayin' that now 'cuz you're scared! No man, it's true, I stole it, man! I took credit for it 'cuz I'm not actually funny! Come on man, do you know what that's like? Being a comedian but not being funny? Come on, Kanye, I just take jokes and re-package them with a Mexican accent man.
You think you can make fun of me? I'm a genius! I'm the voice of a generation! What are you!? Nothing! Look at me man I'm not funny, I steal jokes, my dick don't work, man I got to piss in a plastic bag, man, I got no dick! I'm not gonna hurt you.
I pay people to do that for me.
Oh shit, oh no man, come on I got no dick man- Ahhh ahh! Now, explain it to me.
Why do people think I'm a gay fish? 'Cuz 'cuz you like fishsticks, man.
Come on, man don't you get it? Please just get it man Why- look at me look at me! I love fishsticks I love putting fishsticks in my mouth.
You're, you're a gay fish, man.
Thank you, thank you very much! Well, about a week ago our country was blessed with the fishsticks joke.
And ever since then, us comedians have been kicking ourselves for not thinking of it! But today, we have with us the true creators of the fishsticks joke- Please welcome the comedy team of Cartman and Valmer! Hey guys! Hi Ellen! You guys like fishsticks? Thank you, thank you no really, thank you.
So guys I gotta ask, How did you come up with this incredible joke? It was just- Ellen, comedy is like a game of racquetball, you know? You serve, and the other person hits it back.
It bounces off the wall- you backhand it.
And it goes back and forth and back and forth! Then hopefully, you've got a good joke.
Thank you.
But guys, this joke is so perfect.
Can you explain how nobody thought of it before? Well Ellen, the t-t-t- truth of the matter is that there's never really been a team like us before.
I mean, let's be perfectly honest a lot of people wouldn't work with someone who was disabled, but I see past that.
I look beyond Jimmy's disabilities and find a bond- Which can unite us in comedy.
Working with crippled people is really important.
That's so great and are you crying Jimmy? Yes ma'am.
Oh don't cry pal, you're gonna get me started.
Anyway, what was important for us, as a team, Ellen was to make sure that everyone knew that we came up with the joke, and not Carlos-butthole-Mencia.
I see, and did you know that Carlos Mencia was found dead in his house this morning with fishsticks stuffed down his open neck hole? Uhhh excuse me? Get my jet ready! Looks like we got another inning to play.
Alright so check it out, we've got offers from Van de Camps and Gorton's Fishermen, to do commercials! It's always been my dream to go on a national TV show and talk about the craft of comedy.
Yeah, that was cool, huh? Eric, there's something I really need to know.
What's that? How do you live with yourself? You know you had nothing to do with the fishsticks joke - but you just keep pretending.
How do you look at yourself in the fucking mirror? That's what I want to know! So here it is.
How do you take credit for something you didn't do? That is bullcrap Jimmy and you know it! I had just as much to do with the fishsticks joke as you did! Dude, it's Puff Daddy! Tie up these motherfuckers! Now, I'm gonna ask you motherfuckers one more time.
Why did you start these rumors about me? Please, I wasn't starting rumors about you.
I don't even know who you are! Oh right, everyone knows who I am! I want to know how this got started.
Well, we were just talking about ideas for jokes and- Oh so now it's we, huh, Jimmy? A minute ago you said you did it all yourself! Well, I just a bu- I bu- Uh bubbu bubbu a-bubbu! We both came up with it together.
You wanna know how it happened? Hello, Jim.
Oh boy, it's my best pal Eric! What you up to? I'm trying to write jokes but I'm not as funny as you, so it's tough.
Well, maybe I can help you.
We can team up! Really? Wow, you would help me even though I'm crippled.
You are caring and not fat.
Now let's see, how about a joke that has something to do with fishsticks.
You know, 'cuz fishsticks sounds like fish dicks, Jimmy.
Eric Cartman, you are handsome and not even remotely fat.
Thanks- so what I'm thinking is, Do you like fishsticks in your mouth? What was that? Eric, Eric you have to save us! An entire army of Jew robots! Oh my God, what are Jew Bots doing here? Flame on! Flame off! You saved everyone from the Jewbots, Cartman! C'mon Jimmy, we gotta go back and finish that joke! "like fishsticks in your mouth?" "What are you a gay fish?" -There! Wow Eric, incredible! Too bad I'm a dick and I'm gonna take all the credit.
S-s-suck it, bitch.
Aw, dammit.
I guess it really was all me who came up with it.
What?! You gotta let Jimmy go, it's all my fault.
Jesus Eric He's gonna kill you.
You won't even admit it was just me knowing you're gonna die? Jimmy, you really believe that you came up with it all on your own? Oh my God, wait I totally get it now! What, I still don't get anything! All this time I've been mad at you Jimmy for trying to take all the credit.
But now I realize it's just that your ego has made you believe things happened differently.
That's what Kyle was trying to tell me.
That you have such a huge ego you do these mental gymnastics to make yourself a part of things.
R-really? I thought you were just trying to Jew me out of my part of the credit but now I realize that some people just have egos that are so out of whack- That no matter what people tell them, they can't accept the truth of who they are.
Jimmy, I owe you an apology.
I realize now you can't help believing you created the entire joke, because your ego won't let you think otherwise.
I just have to accept that.
Thanks, Eric, for being so understanding.
He's right For so long I've considered myself God's gift to the world that I couldn't take it when people made fun of me.
But they weren't making fun of me They were trying to help me.
Boys, I understand what you did now.
Untie them guys I know what I have to do.
Yo' Kanye, you sure about this? It's time for me to stop running.
I need to believe what people tell me.
Let all my fans know I love 'em but a gay fish just can't live in the outside world forever.
Don't be sad for me, guys-- I'm going home! Uh - c'mon! I been so lonely, girl I've been so sad and down I couldn't understand why haters joked around I wanted to be free with other creatures like me And now I got my wish 'cause I know that I'm a gay fish Gay fish, yo' Motherfucking gay fish I'm a fish, yo' It's alright, girl Makin' love to other gay fish All those lonely nights at the grocery store In the frozen fish aisle feelin' like a whore 'Cause I wasn't bein' true y'know everyone said That I have to make a switch Now I know that I'm a gay fish Gay fish, yo' Motherfucking gay fish I'm a fish, yo'
