Rob Balder Muppet Laboratories 
Rob Balder riffs on Jonathan Coulton's "Skullcrusher Mountain" and comes up with a fitting tribute to two classic Muppets. This song was recorded live at PhilCon 2006 by Harold Stein, and that's Tom Smith in the background trying, successfully, to trip him up.
This song is now available on the following CDs:

This is one of the most existent new songs tonight! Great for insomnia.

*cackle* I'll be bouncing around to this one for a while.

I rather enjoyed it. GO BALDER!

Excellent! Althought I always figured it was Ernie and Bert that were gay, not Bunson and Beaker.
2007-02-23 Balder
Bah, I really should have made that clearer. He's singing to a female guest star. But you're not the first to assume that. :-/

No! It must be Bunson & Beaker! It made the slash fangurls quiver & melt into a mess on the couch. And Wife hit her head on the wall.

And my microphone recording.... :) Rob - Thank you again for permission to record at Philcon.

It's clear he's not talking to Beaker, because he's referring to Beaker in the song. Duh!

So, beyond doing a Gonzo impression, what's Tom saying in the background?

*dies laughing* I just saw JoCo here in Seattle Saturday night, which makes this even more hilarious than it might otherwise have been. I'm still trying to stop giggling. I think Tom's saying 'What a weirdo' the first time, I didn't catch the other one.

At first the song sounds like someone is trying to slash Bunson & Beaker, but then it becomes clear it isn't that. I just love the Gonzo part! Since Gonzo is my favorite muppet EVER! This song makes me happy! -Wife-

fuuberry -- as Gonzo, I say, "What a weirdo!" and "If you were a chicken, you'd be im-peck-able!" Along with the "Ba-domp-bomp-ba-domp bomp -- HONK!" at the end.

This one has actually quite grown on me.

I'm not into the Muppets, but this song has grown on me too.

I actually heard this first, then laughed hysterically when I heard Skullcrusher Mountain...

Saw this live at dragoncon. It was awesome watching Luke Ski making beaker noises with his arms pulled up to his wrists in his shirt.
