Hasa Diga Eebowai

I saw The Book of Mormon the other night and it was the most incredible show that I have ever seen.  I am a fan of South Park and I had a pretty good idea what to expect, but I was nonetheless amazed at how well they pulled it off.

For those who do not know, The Book of Mormon is the musical story of two white as white bread mormon missionaries who get sent to Uganda to win converts for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  However, they find that people whose lives are plagued by poverty, AIDS, warlords, and female genital mutilation are not always terribly interested in the tales of Joseph Smith and his encounters with the Angel Moroni. The show is vulgar, profane, blasphemous, and thoroughly entertaining.
