Matt Stone is ripped off.

Michael Moore in his 'Bowling for Columbine'had this animation 3min feature called 'The Brief History of the United States of America". (See it on YouTube) Also IIRC, just before this clip, there is an interview with South Park co-creater Matt Stone. Going by the style of this clip, it is pretty obvious to the user that his clip must've been created by the guys behind South Park. Turns out not. IMDb states, on this page that the whole clip was another creation of the Harold Moss - Micheal Moore combine. I dunno, what to say.

Anyway, the whole point of this post was to point towards a rip-off of a rip-off. The Daily Telegraph, parodies this clip to produce 'A Brief History of the Ashes'. If this draws a smirk, then be content. Also note similarity in the lines, and rehashed end portions at the end with Star Wars / Kill Bill rip-offs.
