CURIOUSER & CURIOUSER
In case you haven't heard, tomorrow night's episode of South Park will feature chef, although nobody is saying who will be doing the voice.
'South Park' has Chef's surprise
Contrary to popular assumption, "South Park" fans have not seen the Chef sling his final serving of hash.
The character, who until last week was voiced by Isaac Hayes, is back tomorrow in the first of several new episodes of Comedy Central's top-rated show.
A Comedy Central spokesman would not confirm or deny that Chef's voice in tomorrow's episode is provided by Hayes, but he did reiterate that Hayes is no longer involved with the show.
It's unclear whether tomorrow's episode involves Scientology.
But Parker and Stone's penchant for topical sacred-cow-bashing is well-known. So it would not be a stretch to assume that "Chef Returns" is the latest salvo in the battle between "South Park" and the religion that counts Tom Cruise and John Travolta among its devotees.
And then I read this interesting tidbit. IMHO, Defamer's supposition rings true.
Isaac Hayes suffered a stroke, so Isaac Hayes May Have Quit 'South Park' By His Own Not-Free Will: It's enough to make you think this message may have been composed for him, perhaps by the same team of handlers who abducted Hayes from the evil clutches of his neurological rehabilitation treatment program, replacing it with their far more effective vitamins-and-heating-pad-on-your-head stroke-Thetan-reducing technique.
If Hayes did suffer a stroke, I wish him a speedy and full recovery. I felt from the beginning that there was more to his "quitting" than met the eye.
