South Park ImaginationLand: Butters Made It All Up?

Tonight I watched all 3 episodes of the South Park ImaginationLand Trilogy back to back. I noticed that Butters was the first person to make contact with an imaginary creature when he spotted the Leprechaun. He was also the last main character shown on the final episode. My theory: He created ImaginationLand.

Later in the first episode, his friends were debating issues of an imaginary nature, and he was there. All of a sudden the Mayor of ImaginationLand showed up. I think Butters made it happen.

But how could have the U.S. government been working on a gateway to ImaginationLand all the way back in the 1960's, if ImaginationLand didn't exist until Butters made it up? Because once Butters created it, it existed for all time, backwards and forwards through history.

I don't know if you've seen "The Lost Room," but at one point they explained how once a certain event happened, something that had existed suddenly never existed. I think once Butters imagined the Leprechaun and ImaginationLand, both had always existed.

I admit, it's a somewhat involved theory. And the trilogy works fine (maybe even better) without it. But what if it's true...?
