Do credits for Zohan include Eric Cartman or Awesom-O?

After watching the trailers for Zohan I was reminded of South Park's Awesom-O episode where Cartman, pretending to be a robot, comes up with over 2000 movie ideas featuring Adam Sandler. The premise of the movie You don't mess with the Zohan which has Adam Sandler playing a Mossad agent who fakes his own death in order to pursue his dream of becoming, of all things, a hairstylist in New York, sounds eerily similar to the ideas Cartman comes up for the movie studios:

Awesom-O: Um... okay. How about this: Adam Sandler is like, in love
with some girl, but then it turns out that the girl is actually a ...golden
retriever, or something.

Producer: We'll call it "Puppy Love"!

Awesom-O: Okay, how about this: Adam Sandler... inherits like, a
billion dollars, but first, he has to, like, become a ...boxer, or
something.

Producer: Punch-Drunk Billionaire!


Movie buffs, according to Time magazine, saw in Zohan inspirations from The Big Lebowski and Borat. Which clearly rules me out as a movie buff or redefines them as people with a very elastic imagination.

Adam Sandler is classic in his own way, though he tends to do his best work when he stays casual, not trying too hard to be funny or deep, etc.
