Giants, giants and more giants. There are also some guys who like to wrestle giants, discover countries inhabited by giants (and humbly name said countries after themselves), and huge tracts of land created by giants. Throw in some Shakespeare, American tourists, saliva, stones, fiddlers, dogs, knockers and pasties – how can you go wrong? A shortish episode crammed full of really big things…..oh my Gogmagog you’re gonna enjoy this one.

  • Ohhhhh you want to know why snakes would coil together into a bundle? I'll warn you, that adder stone may not be saliva. Many species mate in a "mating ball". View at your own risk:

    • hooray for snake orgies! I have to say I was disappointed in the lack of roundness of the mating ball. I expect more accuracy in my names for animal porn.

          Also I suggest for those who don't know what a pastie is to do a google image search so you can see what one looks like (…whistles inconspicuously).

          • Should say – Also I suggest for those who don’t know what pasties are to do a google image search so you can see what they look like (…whistles inconspicuously).

            I think that makes sense as a sentence. I'm a little bit sick and incoherent.

  • Yes, you are sick, Tort

    • Hmmm, perhaps his disease in on this chart? We may find a cure for him yet (hint I'm thinking he may need to wear red coral and moonstone….

      • Well one of the symptoms is a tendency to cause trouble (wikipedia said so, so it must be true). I do have to say though whoever had the idea of exchanging the traditional treatment for hysteria for wearing red coral and moonstone must have lived a very sad life.

  • Which traditional treatment? There are many and the most recent one is truly the fun one!

Joe and Emma have never done anything not illegal, and this is doubly true for the Meat Mutant podcast. Furthermore, we own absolutely every property swiped for cheap gags, a fact that may come as a surprise to those who created them. Lawyers, please sling only your most defamatory arrows. Go for the low blows. Contact Joe for a list of everything wrong he's ever done, he should have a fresh list in about fifteen.
