"The Snuke" is episode 1104 (#157) of Comedy Central's animated comedy series South Park. It was originally broadcast on March 28, 2007. The episode is rated TV-MA.

Stylistically, the episode parodies the Fox television action series 24, through its use of that series' trademark split screens and ticking clock, and through the fact that every phone ring tone is the standard phone used in the CTU offices.


The episode begins when a new student enrolls in Ms. Garrison's class. He is named Bahir Hassam Abdul Hakeem, a child of Muslim parents whose mere presence makes Cartman paranoid to the point that he leaves class, asking Ms. Garrison whether Bahir has been searched for bombs. Suspecting that the Muslim kid and his parents are involved in a terrorist attack, Cartman calls Kyle (who is at home sick), on his cell phone during recess, and Cartman asks him to do a web search for Bahir's background. Cartman also asks Kyle to see if there are important events that day, and figures that Bahir may target Hillary Clinton, who is in town for a political rally. Cartman takes this as a terrorist threat, then proceeds to call the CIA, claiming that he will only speak directly to the President.

A short while later, the school is evacuated via a fire alarm and announcement from Principal Victoria. Bahir goes with Butters to hang out, and Butters starts to accept Bahir as a friend. As that is happening, the CIA calls Clinton's convoy to warn them of a possible threat. They decide to continue the rally, and as she is doing so, her security finds that there is a nuclear device in Hillary Clinton's vagina. This was referred to as a "Snuke" (a suitcase nuke designed to fit in a woman's "snizz") in Clinton's "snatch". To try to locate the detonator, Cartman tortures Bahir's parents by farting in their faces. Cartman gets no response and once he hears that Bahir is at Butters' house, Cartman runs off.

While Cartman attempts to accost Bahir while running away from Butters' house, a group of Russian neo-soviets abduct both Cartman and Bahir, the former for alerting the CIA to the attempted terrorist attack. While they threaten their prisoners, their conversation reveals that the Russians who placed the snuke are merely pawns in service of America's oldest enemy - the British. The Russians are a distraction while an 18th-century style fleet of British wooden sailing vessels make a surprise attack to "put an end to the American Revolution". After Kyle, Stan, the FBI, ATF, Homeland Security, Interpol, Central Intelligence Agency, and numerous other agencies raid the mercenaries, the Russians warn the federal agents that the detonator is set to go off when the clock reaches 1:00. However, the power is cut and the clock is reset, blinking 12:00 repeatedly once the power comes back on. The various American soldiers open fire on the Russian terrorists and free Eric and Bahir. Meanwhile, the U.S. Navy fighter pilots continue the attack and the British fleet is annihilated. Upon hearing the news of the attack's failure from the fleet's leader, the Queen commits suicide.

Back in South Park, Kyle tells everybody that the moral of the experience was that one should not be suspicious of just one race of people, "because actually, most of the world hates America." Even though Cartman is now convinced that Bahir is innocent, he refuses to apologize for falsely implicating him, pointing out that if he had not suspected Bahir due to his religion he would have never called Kyle, and the actual terrorism plot would not have been solved. Therefore, he concludes, "racism and bigotry saved America," so no apology needs to be made at all.
