Kristen Schaal Is a Horse

We open up our Loops show with a bit of sketch comedy from Kurt Braunohler and Kristen Schaal that seems to break all the rules about how jokes work. 

Be careful, this silly loopy song is perversely catchy:

i'm pretty sure this unorthodox joke is based on andy kauffman's "i trusted you." like the previous commenter i laughed til gagging at that sketch and when i showed friends they rewarded me with a blank stare.

I listened to the 'Kristen Schaal is a Horse' segment while driving and nearly had to pull the car over because I was laughing so hard I started to cry. Loved the segment so much I wanted to share it with my husband when I returned home. I pulled up your website expecting to find an audio link and was pleasantly surprised to find a video link instead. Fantastic! What a bonus to see the nuts behind this hysterical segment. Not so much. My husband and I watched stoned faced. I struggled to explain why I was blinded by tears just an hour earlier. Why was the segment so much funnier to the ear than the eye? Perhaps an idea for a future Radiolab?
