You So Crazy

Man, anyone who is a fan of Chappelle's Show on Comedy Central (like me) must be a bit troubled following the last few weeks of bad news...earlier in the year, the show was delayed from its scheduled February start date to May 31. Then, even as ads began promoting the new season, the show was indefinitely postponed amid a swirl of rumours ranging from drug problems, to burnout, to lack of top notch material. It seems its worse than I had originally thought; Dave Chappelle has reportedly checked into a psychiatric hospital in South Africa leaving the future of the show in serious jeopardy. Of course, Dave could film some sketches while he's "staying" there, like a new Lil Jon bit:

Nurse: Time to take your medicine, now.
Lil Jon: WWHHHAATTT????
Nurse: Time to take your medicine, now.
Lil Jon: WWHHHAATTT????
Nurse: Time to take your medicine, now.
Lil Jon: WWHHHAATTT????
Nurse: Time to take your medicine, now.
Lil Jon: HUH?????
Nurse: Time to take your medicine, now.
Lil Jon: OOOOKKKKAAAAYYYY!!!!!!!

Well, in all seriousness, Dave is one of the most astute social commentators of our time, let's hope he has not suffered too greatly and that he can make a speedy recovery regardless of what it means for the show.
