Earlier in the week I wrote about Isaac Hayes and his departure from South Park. Last night the world got to see the typical South Park response to criticism. I missed the episode so I am relying on ‘E’s report.
“Trey Parker and Matt Stone have buried the hatchet with–sorry, into–Isaac Hayes.
On Wednesday’s South Park 10th season premiere, Hayes’ Chef character was struck by lightning, impaled, shot, mauled by a mountain lion, eaten by a grizzly bear, and, oh, yes, accused of being a child molester.”
Just wait it gets better
“In the completely made-up story, Chef is “brainwashed” by an organization of child molesters called the “Super Adventure Club.” In order to cure Chef, Kyle, Stan, Cartman and Kenny take their friend to a psychiatrist, a frowned-upon profession among Scientologists.
In the end, Chef dies a million Kenny deaths, only to live on, sort of, as a Darth Vader version of himself.
At his funeral, Kyle urges South Park residents to remember Chef as he was, before the brainwashing. If there is to be anger, he says, don’t direct it at the beloved cafeteria worker.
Rather, says Kyle, “we should be mad at the fruity little club for scrambling his brain.”
