Oh My God! They killed Chef! You bastards!

So last night I finally got to see the new South Park episode "Return of Chef", and I have to say I thought it was awesome. There were some parts that made me laugh outloud in that raspy, asthmatic way that only truly funny things can.

I was going to do a whole post about the episode, and what I thought of it. Then I realized that I would just be saying the same things that other people have said, and it's not like everybody doesn't already know what's going on, anyway. Chef is gone. Chef is dead. He was set on fire, fell down a cliff, impaled on a stick, chewed on by a mountain lion, and ripped apart by a gorram bear. Chef is no more, children. They fucking killed him in the most bloody, gory way possible. And it was friggin' hilarious.

If you don't know the full story about why Isaac Hayes decided to leave the cast of South Park, you can read a pretty good informative story about it here.

The best part of the episode for me was the way in which they left the door open for Isaac to return as Chef, if he so desired. Yes, children...They have already resurrected Chef, though he's more machine now than man. Twisted and sexually evil. He is Darth Chef!

If you click on the picture of Darth Chef above, you will be directed to a great page with the audio from the Darth Chef episode, along with a great new Darth Chef remix of "Chocolate Salty Balls". Totally worth a look.

RIP, Chef. We'll miss you.

Damnit! I can't believe I missed it.
I'm downloading it when I get home. Somebody has to have it.

No more Chef. *sniff*

Haa haa haa! Darth Chef, that's classic.

I thought he really didn't quit?? Hmm.. guess not.

The news article I read said that since they rebuilt Chef, they don't have to take Isaac Hayes back, they can bring Chef back without him.
That episode (found it on Bearshare) was absolutely the most hilarious thing ever. EVER.

I'm glad you found the episode to watch! I thought it was great, too. Especially the ending.

Very sad..... very sad indeed.

I haven't watched south park at all since college, but what a shame to learn that chef was killed (the bastards!) LOL.

Oh well, like you said, they could always bring him back at some point.
