We’ve all asked ourselves this question 100 times before: Why is Bugs Bunny so sexy? Only Papa Meat knows the real answer. And it launches us into a discussion of copyright claims and the iconic imagery of Calvin from Calvin & Hobbes peeing on pretty much everything.

But ‘cheap’ toilet humor usually doesn’t make it into Meat Canyon’s work, and we talk about why it gets cut. In Kevin’s estimation, Meat Canyon *does* take pop culture icons and turn them into guys not allowed within 500 feet of a playground -- and the answer may be in the gums and teeth.

Meat Canyon’s most impressive feat might be in the management of his process. He’s organized complex collabs at a shockingly fast pace, and he’s driven by gratitude and a common sense desire to just get projects done. It shows with his successful Kickstarter, which also accomplished the superhuman act of actually being ready when it was promised.

He’s not superhuman, though. He likes hanging out with his wife, listening to new music, and grabbing some extra sleep. Meat Canyon loves his work, though, and it shows in his transition to a full-timer who’s pumping out originals like Monster Lab.

The Baby Gang and Patrons ask about the future of Jamal and Rachel and Day Drinkin’, Meat’s thoughts on Denmark’s huge-penis cartoon for children, the trials of outrageously fast growth and the imposter syndrome that comes with it, and more.

Thanks to Papa Meat for giving us so much time, and thanks to all the Patrons and listeners who turned out for the live recording. You all deserve hugs and kisses (from one of Meat Canyon’s characters).
