It’s Sage. They positioned Sage within the sauce. The Sage isn’t challenging to discover, when you recognize the place to seem. so that you positioned a bit on your bar-b-que and unexpectedly you could learn among the strains and get the esoteric instructing for your self, simply because, good, you're what you devour. sixty eight devour extra Sage(s). i'll make a few of that sauce for you, instantly; it won’t be nearly as good as theirs, yet I belong with the white trash, now not the initiates, and people folks down on the trailer park understand how to celebrate too. “Know thyself,” acknowledged the Oracle at Delphi, and who am I to argue with these ladies? So this can be how to define the clitoris, get a date with Jennifer Aniston, and spot the attractive head on. you will adore me for this. “You Killed Socrates! You Bastards! ” i do know that Chef is Socrates, and that used to be what Parker and Stone meant from the outset. this is why Parker and Stone are fairly white trash Straussians too, that is to claim, they’re my type of humans. i'll display their esoteric instructing. Parker and Stone have been going to kill Chef all alongside, yet now not simply because they didn’t love him. They have been the simplest pals Chef had. And the complete Scientology to-do was once an exoteric conceal tale. they'd to coach us, the selected, the Sage-eaters, what occurs to a smart guy like Chef in a spot like South Park, they usually depart without doubt whatever that Chef is the single grownup in South Park who's wherever close to sane, not to mention clever. And now that either Socrates and Chef are useless, we need to depend upon no matter what proof they left at the back of. regrettably, they left to us no writings in their personal, other than that Chef can have written one tune.

Now “Salisbury” is a city in England which was once known as via the Romans “Sorviodunum,” yet get this: as Stone and Parker knew, neither “sorvio” nor “dunum” is within the large Latin dictionary in my workplace, and that i suggest it’s an important one. It has plenty of phrases. So now i assume you’re following my go with the flow. Romans spoke Latin didn’t they? right here, i need to imagine, is the key hyperlink among Socrates and Chef that Parker and Stone so cleverly hid. No Sorviodunum within the Latin dictionary.
