Where Has Paul Henry Been? In Space, Apparently

Things have been a little quiet on the Paul Henry front of late. Since his final episode of the late night Paul Henry Show last year, there has been a serious shortage of Paul. No smug grin. No hysterical laughing at rodents. No description of impoverished countries as shitholes. There was a weak online attempt at finding him an online intern, but the Internet was left with more questions than answers.
