'South Park' - 'You're Getting Old': Getting ready to say goodbye?

I haven't been a regular "South Park" viewer in a long time, but I happened to catch last night's mid-season finale - which many people on Twitter said felt like a series finale - and I have some quick thoughts on it and the state of the show coming up just as soon as I save those britches...
