All Hail Cartman

I don't think that Big Hollywood's Yervand Kochar realizes that Cartman is often presented as a satire himself:
Unless an honest communication is reestablished, the most precise definition of the contemporary independent film will remain the one coined by “South Park’s” Cartman when he warned his friends not to watch independent movies since they’re always about gay cowboys eating pudding. 

These words were prophetic, for they were uttered years before “Brokeback Mountain” emerged as an alternative Western.
Incidentally, what do Westerns - either John Wayne ones, Clint Eastwood ones, or Ang Lee's one - have to do with "independent film?"
