Have you been watching HBO's "True Detective," which wraps Sunday? Of course you have - everyone else on the planet has been. But here's the thing - what the heck is the Yellow  King? The whole series seems to revolve around resolution of this urgent question, and lots of clues, some puckishly, are strewn throughout. (There's even a character named LaRue; at least his first name isn't "Jaune.") 

 College  Humor, the website, has a theory. It may be the correct one. Take a look, but be warned - a naughty word at the end  you wouldn't want your grandmother to hear. And thanks to  Hitfix's TVTattle for locating this amusing theory.
