Tellar has such a lovely speaking voice  :D

Also that's got to be a pretty old clip what with the mentioning of Trey and Matt.

He would be great in a barbershop quartet I'd bet.  Or hosting Masterpiece Theatre.

On the commentary for the Scientology episode, Trey and Matt mentioned that P&T told them they didn't need to do Scientology now because M&T did it so well.

I wonder if that was from TAM. I'd imagine so; I hope to go to that some day. *wistful sigh...*

Yeah, Penn has said on many occasions that they won't do an episode of BS on cold reading because The Biggest Douche in the Universe episode exposed it better than they ever could. That might be (depending on the day you ask) my all-time favorite South Park episode because of that.

He'd be a little more animated than the current host...

Wasn't Cold Reading or at least psychics in general the very FIRST episode of Bullshit? And didn't it specifically feature them slamming the biggest douche in the universe? I'm fairly certain that it was, and did. And it was before that episode of South Park.

I'm just sayin'... :)

Im trying to get my family and friends into Penn and Tellers Bullshit. I have been watching the show religiously for the past few years. And to tell you the truth, they have made such convincing arguments on some of the episodes that it changed the entire way I thought on the subject. Like the death penalty. A great episode for everyone.

After looking it up, you're right, but Penn has definitely said that in the past. Maybe he was talking about doing an episode specifically on cold reading? I dunno. I just know what he said when he was talking to Trey Parker on his (now sadly defunct) radio show.

Remember the episode on Nostradamus? It had that guy on there who wrote the book proclaiming the Ayatollah as the anti-jeebus, and when the Ayatollah died, made a new edition claiming it was Saddam? The guy who said Mabus was W. Bush? He was on a show on the History Channel about Nostradamus and said that Mabus was actually an amalgam of OsaMA and BUSh.   ::)

Guess he saw the episode and his verbal spanking by Randi.

Just a heads up:

The evil, evil folks at Walmart have a sale on the series right now. Season 1 is $17.96, and seasons 2-5 are $14.96.

I prefer to believe that Mabus is a Bea Arthur Transformer (I'll let you figure that one out).
