come back, one year!
I guess the Soup Nazi didn’t go into exile in Argentina after all. Recast as the “Food Nazi”, he’s in a commercial for The Center for Consumer Freedom.

The CCF is an extreme-o deregulation group that apparently wants to do away with the Food and Drug Administration, so that we can clog our arteries with Hardee’s Monster Thick Burgers without governmental impediments. Fighting for your right to deep-fry, as it were.

You can’t blame Larry Thomas, the actor who played the character on “Seinfeld”, for milking it. He’s reprised the persona in commercials for TBS, and probably has gotten other gigs solely because of it too. According to IMDb, he had an official website set up called LarryThomasTheSoupNazi.com. However, as of this writing, it’s defunct, and when I checked the URL, it wasn’t even registered; so I’m guessing that’s an error on IMDb’s part.
