King of the Hill can be just plain brilliant. Tonight's episode: Bobby runs into a hard-core for Jesus Youth Group and gets piercings and fake dreads and a "Satan Sucks" t-shirt and all the WWJD regalia. Hank (his dad) in the end doesn't let him go anymore. In Bobby's consternation, Hank shows him a box of all the stuff he used to be "into" and grew out of like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc. Hank says, "Bobby, I just don't want the Lord to end up in this box."

What a program. And on FOX no less.

Hank's words to the Christian Hard Core band: "Can't you see you're not making Christianity better, just Rock n'Roll worse?"
