Short Ends: Chef Gate Rages On

· The angry folks at Chef Gate have started an online petition to protest Comedy Central's yanking of South Park's "Trapped in the Closet" episode and Viacom's general spinelessness in the face of rumored Tom Cruise-applied pressure. They're even offering downloads of the episode in a variety of formats. Get yours before the lawyers erase animated Cruise from history!
· While The Fast and the Curious is definitely not a Brokeback Mountain parody, it's certainly a spiritual heir to that grand tradition. Thanks to Brokeback, two overly macho guys will never be able to fight (whether physically or verbally) onscreen again without the homosexual subtext instantly becoming the text. Especially if those two dudes are Vin Diesel and Paul Walker.
