The always entertaining Trey Parker and Matt Stone dropped by "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" on Thursday night ahead of the return of "South Park" later this month. But, as usual, it was their hit Broadway musical "The Book Of Mormon" that dominated much of the conversation.

Parker and Stone told Kimmel that they've actually invited GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney to come see the show, but he has yet to claim his tickets. Other Mormons, however, have been loving the risque musical. They see it as "Their 'Fiddler On The Roof,'" Stone said, to a big laugh from Kimmel's audience.

But the craziest part about how much Mormons like the musical that mocks them is that the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints has actually paid money to put ads in the playbook. That's right, a play that says "F**k you God" about a dozen or more times is now being used to recruit young religion-seekers. You reallly can't make this stuff up.

"South Park" returns to Comedy Central on Sept. 26.
