Who Killed Kenny: Crushed by a falling piano.

Body Count: Miss Information, beaten to death by her customers when they learn that Cheech & Chong are Mexicans, rather than Native Americans. And Kenny. A piano drops on his head as he walks away in disgust from Stan, who is crying over Kyle's impending death -- something he's never bothered to do during Kenny's endless demises.

Trivia: In the Cherokee hair tampon commercial, the young woman talking to her mom about not feeling fresh is Trey Parker's daughter.

Where Did The Idea Come From: It was a dig on New Age medicine inspired by one of South Park's writers, who announced that she was ridding her body of "toxins" by consuming cayenne pepper and lemon juice. However she couldn't explain what those "toxins" might be, or how cayenne pepper and lemon juice helped.
