Chef Dead!

Only days after 2IGTV exclusively* broke the news that Chef, the character voiced by singer Isaac Hayes on South Park, was leaving the show in protest to the producers satire of scientology, I've just learned of the death of Chef!!!!

Chef appeared to die a grisly death on the show Wednesday night as he 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. At Chef's funeral, one of the South Park gang says in a eulogy: "A lot of us don't agree with the choices Chef has made in the last few days. Some of us feel hurt and confused that he seemed to turn his back on us. But we can't let the events of the past few weeks take away the memories of how Chef made us smile." Finally, the South Park tyke remarks, "We shouldn't be mad at Chef for leaving us. We should be mad at that fruity little club for scrambling his brains." Although Hayes's voice was used in the episode, the dialogue apparently was pieced together from previous episodes. The Associated Press, noting that Chef received "a true South Park send off," indicated that the ending, in which Chef's "fruity little club" tries to revive him, leaves open the possibility of his return.

*It wasn't really an exclusive it just looks good in this context.
