Comment of the day: "Why pay to drink from the gutter?"

Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the longtime brains behind South Park, Colorado's most famous semi-fictional mountain town, took it all the way to Broadway on Tuesday when The Book of Mormon opened to glowing reviews. The musical, a sendup of Mormon culture starring two "elders" on a mission trip to Uganda, was neither Parker and Stone's first foray into musicals nor their first look at Mormonism, and we took the opportunity on Tuesday to take a look back at the oeuvre of two hometown gents who've done us proud. Commenter Tracy Hall, Jr. was apparently less enthused about the musical. (Actually, we suspect he may be a Mormon missionary.)

Why pay to drink from the gutter when the pure fountain flows free?

That link, by the way, directs to this passage from the book of Nephi in the actual Book of Mormon:

Come, my brethren, every one that athirsteth, come ye to the waters; and he that hath no money, come buy and eat; yea, come buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Free wine and milk? Sounds like a deal! But we're still going to see The Book of Mormon as soon as possible.
