Searching for Meaty McGillicutty

Just when you think YouTube has everything ...

I was searching around for a sketch from the old Jon Stewart Show, possibly from the last episode. It was a take on Willy Wonka set in a meat factory run by, yes, Meaty McGillicutty, a psychotic Vietnam vet whose factory operates in a state of fear. I don't recall what they called the Oompa Loompa meat men.

This bit of comedy gold has apparently escaped the notice of the web, even Wikipedia and this dude. But I didn't make this up. Reni Goldberg knows what I'm talking about.

I did, however, come across this Helmet performance.

UPDATE: The call for Meat has been heeded! See this post's comments for a link to the Meaty McGillicutty segment on the second-to-last episode of the Jon Stewart Show.

Also, for another performance by Helmet — albeit a shortened one — from the episode in the above video, check this out.
