My partner is a puppeteer (not professional, though he's been doing it forever in an amateur manner...we have many, many puppets in our house) and we both found this utterly delightful. Subscribed!!

Truly, this is one of the best collections of people I have ever had the pleasure of employmenting with!

(It gets even better on rewatch.)

Aww. I wanted Alma to find an actual friend. Although maybe one's better off NOT finding a friend in Hell.

I am reminded of the surreal, hostile office from Being John Malkovitch

Yet again all the pausing and zooming (repeat several times) to read the full email was worth the price of admission.

This week, we take a break from the office for an entire episode about Xharl. Episode 11 will teach you how to make Deviled Eggs.

Xharl is my favorite primeval world-ending nightmare beast.

I tried to make Xharl-style eggs for lunch today, but whenever I drop eggs into boiling water they burst forth with hideous, grasping tentacles that make my doubt my grasp on sanity.

I blame the Cultist.

When people steal my pen at work I do in fact want them to be fired and also sent to Hell so this is good and true.

I have a lump in my throat but I'm watching puppets so I'm like I don't even know what's happening right now

I am hooked on Hamibal.
posted by maggieb at 10:54 PM on August 2, 2015


I've never seen that other show - the one that's like Hamibal but with flesh puppets instead of cloth ones. Is it worth checking out?
posted by moonmilk at 5:42 AM on August 3, 2015


oh hey, this thread's still open! so here's a new Xhooking With Xharl, about boozy eggnog.

I just broke up with my boyfriend...I was going to start eating healthier...basically, I have had an Amla week, and this is just what I needed, Greg.

Xharl. Xharl is always the answer.

I enjoyed this even though the entire concept of eggnog makes me throw up in my mouth a little. It's very good, is what I'm saying.
