My daily email Calvin cartoon. I used to have this one up in my office.

In cartoon news:

Isaac Hayes (Chef) has decided to leave South Park, over a dispute with the creators about the show's "inappropriate ridicule" of religion.

In his statement, Hayes didn't mention the South Park episode about his religion, Scientology, but one of the show's creators, Matt Stone, said:

"In ten years and over 150 episodes of 'South Park,' Isaac never had a problem with the show making fun of Christians, Muslim, Mormons or Jews. He got a sudden case of religious sensitivity when it was his religion featured on the show."

The Scientology episode will be re-broadcast on Comedy Central tomorrow (Wednesday). It sounds pretty funny. Stan is hailed as a saviour by Scientology leaders, and Tom Cruise locks himself in a closet and won't come out.

Update: The re-broadcast was cancelled, reportedly because Tom Cruise threatened to not promote Mission Impossible 3 if the episode wasn't pulled, but you can watch the entire episode on YouTube.
