    Please, please, please, more H.R. Giger. This has to be a recurring thing. It’s so funny it makes me pee in your pants.

  2. Dennis Sorensen says:

    This is the most hilarious thing I have heard in a long time. Thank you so much.

    More Giger, please!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff. I am in tears listening to this. Brilliant, brilliant stuff. Please make this an ongoing bit.

  4. Erica says:

    I agree with everyone, but especially jsnvndbrk. There is a definite Giger/pee correlation.

    I’ve listened to both H.R. Giger sketches about 50 times now. People were wondering why tears were streaming down my face at work. I don’t think I’ve laughed this hard in ages.

    More please!!

    Who is your voice actor for him? He’s goddamned BRILLIANT.

  11. Matt says:

    That’s me, Danny. Thanks very much!
