The search for True Detective’s Yellow King threatens to inspire Rust Cohle-like obsessiveness in even the most casual of the HBO series’ fans. Theories about the ritualistic killer abound, but if the video below is any indication, a group of Onion-associated comics may have finally cracked the case. It’s the “detective’s curse,” as Marty Hart (whom we can now definitively say is not The Yellow King) might say.
