Just when you think you know everything in the South Park Vs. Isaac Hayes story, it just keeps getting weirder! According to this story by Roger Friedman on the Fox News website, Isaac Hayes is in no shape to quit the show due to a stroke he suffered on January 17th.
The article states that Isaac has a “sly sense of humor” and still enjoyed his association with South Park, so then the question begs…who issued the now infamous press release? If it wasn’t Isaac, who was it? Or, I think the more likely scenario, this is just idle speculation on the writer’s part.
And Comedy Central issued a statemant about this Wednesday’s episode:
The launch of South Park’s tenth season is marked by the triumphant homecoming of school chef, Jerome McElroy. “The Return of Chef” premieres Wednesday, March 22 at 10:00 p.m., only Comedy Central.The town is jolted out of a case of the doldrums when Chef suddenly reappears. While Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman are thrilled to have their old friend back, they notice that something about chef seems different. When Chef’s strange behavior starts getting him in trouble, the boys pull out all the stops to save him.
Set those VCRs/DVRs/Tivo’s boys and girls, this one should be a keeper!
