So, the voice of Chef quit South Park.

.. Chef returns in the season 10 opener (13.6MB). And I'm not saying any more. Well, okay - the word for the day is "editing". =:)

<td>Yay! Following Mitzi's departure from Bunnyton, the new resident turned out to be Coco. ^_^ So that's three lapines in all, out of the eight, including Tiffany and Pippy.</td><td></td>

Welcome to Irving! "Texas has begun sending undercover agents into bars to arrest drinkers for being drunk, a spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission said on Wednesday." "At one location, for example, agents and police arrested patrons of a hotel bar. Some of the suspects said they were registered at the hotel and had no intention of driving. Arresting authorities said the patrons were a danger to themselves and others." Similarly in Abilene and San Angelo.

When thinking of Texas, I'm reminded of that demotivational poster, "It may be that your only purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others."

marko_the_rat might be interested in this Radio 4 adaptation (40MB, 1h27m) of Terry Pratchett's The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents, broadcast in August 2003, yet remaining unavailable commercially. "The Amazing Maurice is a talking cat, who leads his Educated Rodents, a group of talking rats, as they go from town to town being a plague so that their accomplice, a boy piper, can 'lure them all away' from the town, after which they share the money the piper makes."

If you're using GPG or similar, I have a new public key up now, courtesy of the post-compromise v1.4.2.2.
Do you get the subtext in the Chef episode?

Isaac Hayes (who plays Chef) is a member of the Scientology cult, known for being insanely litigious. (Writing this paragraph puts me in serious jeopardy... but I don't care.) They're also extremely predatory, and have a belief system that would shame a gorilla.

The "Super Adventure Club"'s beliefs vaguely parallel those of Scientology -- see xenu.net if you really want to get into it. Layering pedophilia on top of it all is about as harsh a slam as they could make on Hayes, releasing all the ridicule they've had to suppress while he was still on the show.
Oh, yes - it was made quite public that Hayes was leaving because they mocked said cult. A nasty "belief system", to be sure, and always out for more - they were passing out "IQ test" invitations quite regularly outside Montgomery station in the mornings. (A friend of a friend took it once - essentially a membership qualification test, to see how your beliefs match El Ron's)

I'm getting the feeling they enjoyed making that episode. ^_^
