From, the episode description reads:
When a flock of goats are left in Cake's care, his decision to put Lance the Boil in charge of their cheese making operation turns terribly sour.

Kevin Smith
Kevin Smith is back on The Hour on October 30th in anticipation of the release of his new movie, "Zack and Miri make a Porno". The movie's not even out in theatres yet and it's already making headlines... mostly because some people and groups are taking offense to the posters and billboards advertising the movie. "Zack and Miri Makes a Porno" opens in theatres on Friday, October 31st.
In other news...

Here's part of an article from

In unsurprising news, George Stroumboulopoulos has been discovered to not know
how to spell his own name. Host of the popular “The Hour”television program on CBC, Snufalupagus has become a household name and Canadian icon in his own right. The revelation that George was unable to spell his own name came on Monday during an interview with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Harper, clearly desperate to appeal to the younger demographic that flocks to Strompalopaloo’s popular show unwittingly made a fool of Strombalomanuts after asking for his email address. Sadly, Stumpalatafuts had set up his email address with the assistance of both his driver’s license and birth certificate and was clearly at a loss for words and unprepared for the seemingly simple request.

And finally, The Stroumboulopouli would like to send a heartfelt "Congratulations" over to everyone at MTV Live for winning the 2008 Gemini for Best Talk Series. The Hour was nominated in this category along with The Hills Aftershow.

Have a great week and a hautingly happy Hallowe'en!
