*hamilton

The weird shit about Hamilton taking off in the public mainstream just a tiny bit before MBMBAM did is that discovering that Lin-Manuel Miranda, lyrical genius, Pulitzer prizewinner, one-award-away-from-an-EGOT, the much touted ‘next Sondheim’, has been a rabid fan of the McElroys for years, is always a discovery made with severe confusion and visceral fear. There’s no crossover of minds that threatens to scare me more than the fact that the McElroy brothers are and have been friends with Lin for years. 

The ghost horse jokesters? Oh yeah, their unique vocal patter has been immortalised multiple times in a Pulitzer prize-winning musical. Hamilton. I’m talking about Hamilton. 

The Hamilton guy? Appeared on said ghost horse jokester podcast, talking about his upcoming musical Hamilton, then wrote a ghost horse song for the ghost horse guys to sing.

I’m just saying, I needed prep work for the realisation that Lin knows all of Griffin’s vore jokes probably better than Griffin does.
