For those reading this thread for the first time, the following are all the main ideas and key scenes. For those who think they've read it before, may want to reread the following, for changes have been made.
Still needs a lot of editing, but you'll get the jest. Enjoy!
~.~~~~~~~~First Synopsis (Modified):
The boys see that Chef's old home is going up for sale, and his relatives have placed a single box to the curb. Upon going through the box, an Off-White Paper catches their attention among a sea of all gray papers, presumably Chef's old recipes because one had the directions for making Chocolate Salty Balls.
Stan decides to hold onto the Off-White Paper, bringing it home for further investigation. His dad, Randy, finds the paper and proceeds to build the world's largest Bitcoin steampunk mining rig. Others in South Park start building their own rigs as well, realizing that they, too, can create their own 'Mad Money'.
Darryl Nathan Weathers tries to form the BMU (BethCoin Miners Union).
Meanwhile, the three boys, sans Cartman, start bethcoin.org and maintain a BethCoin Rap forum on the internet. Alienated, Cartman tries to disrupt their endeavor by creating 221 different accounts on their forum. The boys continue to have trouble with Cartman's accounts, though, wondering how to handle the delicate situation, since Cartman is currently off his medication prescribed to him by his family veterinarian.
Bebe Stevens, thinking she's going through puberty because of something she read on the internet, shows a liking toward Erik Cartman, but he doesn't have time for girls. He's too busy maintaining 221 user accounts on the BethCoin Rap forum, as well as posting on many other forums with several other user accounts.
Tweek Tweak starts selling coffee on the internet, but only accepts BethCoin. The first company to do so.
Token Black posts videos on YouTube discussing his PryorCoin.
Dr. Alphonse Mephisto is the main spokesperson for BethCoin, oftentimes appearing on the Max Keiser Show, always spewing the old jargon about BethCoin.
Towelie is the main seller on Tapestry Road, selling stuff one normally purchases in back alleys.
Gerald Broflovski and Steve Black are both lawyers trying to figure out if BethCoin is even legal. Alicia Florrick represents the prosecution. In this major court battle, there is no crime commented nor charges brought forth, yet the case proceeds.
Father Maxi notices that attendance has been low lately, finds out why, then informs the flock that The Church will start accepting BethCoin, skimming a few from the coffer and becoming Towelie's main customer.
A popular TV show about BethCoin airs daily, hosted by two guys who've attended Father Maxi's church since lads, don't know much about BethCoin, and care less, for they're only doing the show for the profit potential. Then their wallet is stolen, so they orchestrate the first BethCoin convention to possibly recoup their loses. The community watches from the sidelines waiting for the Big Announcement to come out of the convention.
Toward the end of the episode, Stephen Stotch just returned from his trip to Papaya and can't believe what is all going on in South Park since his departure a month or two earlier.
Every 3.1415... minutes when a new block of (some number besides 50)
is found, a distinctive Booya! (voice over by none other than Jim Cramer, with Mad Money) is heard from ALL
the mining rigs at the same time.
In the Off-White
Paper, it states Chef named the crypto-currency BethCoin
, after his eleventh true love--Beth Anne Konig, the first Gooback from the future on a scouting mission. Her direct descendants were the only Goobacks 'Left Behind' during the mass exodus.
Somewhere at the beginning of the episode, Stephen Stotch tells his wife, Linda, that he is going to Papaya
, either for a vacation or to tend a work related conference. A scene shows Stephen boarding the plane with other similarly dressed American men and one Canadian with the letter P on the front of his shirt, all within the same age bracket and carrying oversize briefcases, with his clearly showing the name Christine
on the luggage tag.
At the end of the episode, Stephen returns to South Park looking exactly the same as when he left with the exception of having a somewhat glowing tan and donning a pair of scarlet satin stiletto heeled shoes encrusted with matching rhinestones (think Marilyn Monroe)
Upon seeing all the commotion, he yells, "W-T-F!", whereupon the whole town stops what they're doing and, in silence, stare at Stephen, either in awe of his appearance or having that shocked looked one has when caught doing something wrong--or both. Then the words, "To be continued." appear on the screen, thus showing South Park's first ever end-of-the-season cliff hanger without the creators of SP advertising that this would be the case. During the hiatus, the creators of SP start a real-world media blitz, marketing Part II. Part II starts off with, "Previously, on South Park..." then for the next 23? minutes reply Part I in its entirety but with with subtle scene changes throughout. At the end, Stephen is seen returning to South Park exactly as described above, uttering the same words (letters), but this time his son, Butters, simply says, "Hey, Dad!" The End.Token Black, revisited:
Token Black, being the smartest and richest kid in school, creates the PryorCoin
to compete with the BethCoin
. His father, Steve, is seen with Gerald Broflovski--both lawyers--in a court room with Renée-Jean-Pierre-de-Funès- Elisa-Rachel-Viollet-le-Duc-Yves-Cousteau
, a French Judge, presiding. They're defending Mt.Doxx
, a BethCoin
exchange, presenting evidence that BethCoin
is not real money. Their star witness is Marie Black, Steve's wife (Token's mother) and a Chemist, testifies by showing an Off-White
Paper of her own, diagramming the Caucasian
Coin, a physical coin, she's has almost perfected, constructed with rare-earth metals and DNA extracted from a Meth Hookah
, supposedly previously owned by Rick Pryor which she purchased off Tapestry Road
.Craig Tucker's Goons
, sans Tweek and Token, are the destructive members on the BethCoin Rap
forum. They decided to do this because everybody else in town is busy with BethCoin
but them, leaving nothing better to do. They even post remarks about BethCoin
on their CTG forum (think SA).
Sponsors of the BethCoin Show and El BethCoin en Gooback are Mt.Doxx, the main BethCoin exchange, and Casa Bonita, home of Gooback's favorite dish--Chapulines.
Kenny is killed in a BethCoin mining accident--several times.
Upon Randy Marsh finding the Off-White Paper (OWP) on the coffee table
(an exact copy is used as a Communion table in Father Maxi's church) left by his son, Stan, he sparks an idea and shares it with his wife, Sharon, outlining how they're finally going to become rich and he'll no longer need to slave as a geologist. After one quick glance of the OWP, Sharon bursts his bubble
stating that the electric cost would eat up all the profits. Randy looks sad. But in the very next scene, he's happily building his version of a BethCoin mining rig--the world's largest--in a Steampunk fashion, on the grounds of the geology lab of where he's employed, taking full advantage of the free electricity. When his coworker sees this, he remarks, "You're not going to die in this game like you did in War of Warcraft, are you, Randy?" Randy retorts, "This is not a game, Nelson!"
Kenny, Stan and Kyle recruit Mayor McDaniels to help bring sanity back to their BethCoin Rap
forum. Once Mayor McDaniels has posted his first 100 posts and has been logged in for five weeks, he's no longer considered a newbie, cementing his new admin position. His first task at hand is to start banning Cartman's 221, and counting, user accounts. This, of course, uses up all his time, taking away from his mayoral duties of running South Park.
Immediately after the airing of every episode of The BethCoin Show and El BethCoin en Gooback, BethCoin loses value, of which is always looked upon as good news because BethCoin is still worth more than it did when it was first introduced. There are billboards placed all over South Park depicting the two hosts of the show, sitting closely together, with the caption 'Up Up Up'.
All of Cartman's user names are of mythical Gods, with Apollo being what he is referred to the most. Upon learning this, Bebe Stevens dresses up as Aphrodite, trying to persuade Cartman into finally recognizing her. Seeing that he still doesn't, she leaves his room. Cartman gets a strange sensation inside, then proceeds to follow her down the hall, down the stairs, until she reaches the front door, but Cartman turns and goes to the refrigerator, finding something to eat which then settles his insides. Note: All the labels on all the food in the fridge has the word 'Value'
written on them.
The two hosts of The BethCoin Show and El BethCoin en GooBack have their BethCoin stolen from their YourBethCoin account. They still proceed with the BethCoin Expo, promising a major announcement will be made during the conference. The BethCoin community is highly upset when they hear that the next convention will be held in Amsterdam, thanks to the all the effort put in by Towelie. They were all hoping for Papaya.
Officer Barbrady is put in charge of finding the stolen BethCoin, using Google as his only investigational tool. He finally concludes that it had to be Ted Williams, a renown South Park panhandler. He even offers up proof in the form of a flowchart, showing all the links erroneously pointing toward Ted Williams, submitted, anonymously, by a BethCoin Rap user, iAINTright, currently
living in South Korea.
Underneath each billboard (mentioned earlier) are a herd of tailless My Little Pony grazing on
The two hosts of The BethCoin Show and El BethCoin en Gooback interview two members of BethCoin Rap, Apollo and Aetna, of which are the same person, Cartman, but even when Aetna's voice is disguised, there's no mistaken who she is.
Tweek Tweak, along with his parents, introduce BethBrew as the first product sold online that accepts BethCoin. He was almost abducted for the second time in his life after appearing on The BethCoin Show to promote BethBrew.
Craig Tucker's Goons and others from the CTG forum, are blamed for hacking into BethCoin Rap and changing all the images and text to PryorCoin.
Officer Barbrady is also investigating the sources of those who keep putting BethCoin into StillInVane's account, currently at 50,000 BethCoin and climbing. The latest update he offers is the same flowchart used in the YourBethCoin investigation, pointing toward Ted Williams as one of the main contributors.
Terrance and Phillip perform at the BethCoin Expo. Terrance, who has been seen fat a few times, now suffers from anorexia, while Phillip is overweight.
When exchanging BethCoin in public, you recognize other Bethcoiners by them wearing an orange parka, and ask them, "Do you want to see the sunrise?" of which the answer is always a stern 'No!, then you proceed to buy or sell BethCoin. Jimbo Kern is the only orange parka wearer that always answers with a joyous 'Yes!', thus having the questioner end the conversation. His home is raided by the TSA after booking a flight online to participate in his yearly hunting trip for The Furry Fox in Romania. They search his basement for an unauthorized BethCoin mining rig, but only find it full of medical marijuana and a tailless, one-eye, three legged dog named Vick. After holding and questioning Jimbo during the duration of The Furry Fox hunting season in Romania, the TSA end their inquisition of Jimbo, then tell him to enjoy his flight.
The women of South Park discover that BethCoin Rap is an excellent place to post their gossip, upcoming events, family photos, etc., further making Kenny, Stan, and Kyle's job of maintaining the forum that much more difficult, hence recruiting
Mayor McDaniels for help in cleaning up their BBS. First, he has to go through the Newbie ritual of first penning 100 posts and be logged in for 5 weeks before he can be duly promoted to Admin. Meanwhile, chaos continues, growing exponentially as shown on the chart below, up to the year 2040, unless it can be quelled.
As more and more rigs are brought online, the creature within starts taking on a life form, and looks for a way out. At the end of the episode, an adult alpaca is born, and starts grassing on dirt with the herd of tailless My Little Pony under a dilapidated billboard.
Once Mayor McDaniels bans Apollo's last user name, all activity on BethCoin Rap ceases. This coincides with the last broadcasts of The BethCoin Show and El BethCoin en Gooback, whereupon Bethcoin begins to rise, creating a new concern that nobody would want to use BethCoin if it's worth more than WoW gold.
At the BethBrew coffee shop, Tweek Tweak's parents, Richard and Cindy, are constantly changing the prices of the products on the shelves to keep up with the price fluctuation of BethCoin. They show no fatigue in constantly doing this because, well, they drink a lot of their product.
Dial-up modems? Hmmm! What if all the rigs were hooked up with length of strings and tin cans attached to each end so that they can communicate with each other. Or, at the very least, this:
Now you got me thinking of a decentralized central control center. The place where geeks calculate the next difficulty level with the use of slide rules.
Mr. Hat's Bar, Grill, BethCoin's Gaming House and Pin the Tail on My Little Pony Arcade and Tanning Salon. "Come to Mr. Hat's, Mr. Hat's is fun, come right now, don't walk - run!"
