There was another circumcision mention in the Simpsons. It was in the episode where prohibition of alcohol came to Springfield and Homer ended up secretely bowling balls full of beer into Moe's Tavern.

At the very end of the episode, Mayor Quimby is reading the town charter and there's a line in there "control circumcision." In a different episode, one of the bullies claims to be Jewish, by putting on various Jewish clothing, but I have a feeling that most Springfieldians (especially the kids) are intact.

love and peace.
ITA, I love South Park but that episode really bugs me :
