This is a bizarre episode, that’s for sure. The premise is that Clyde gets lice, but the majority of the story is told from the perspective of a particular lice living on his head – and the hell Clyde’s poison shampoo wreaks on his family and life.
The South Park children get very uppity when they learn that one of their own has lice, but as it turns, Clyde isn’t the only one bringing this vermin around South Park Elementary.
One particularly noteworthy moment is when the lice refers to God’s plan, as if he is somehow part of it. Kind of throws our own obsession with being part of God’s plan into sharp relief.
