Trapped in the Drive Thru has been stuck in my head ALL NIGHT, prompting me to go to Wikipedia to find out if he is, in fact, married. Weird Al's |
Guess what today's featured article is?
I hopped up and said, "I don't know, do you wanna get somethin' delivered?"
And she's like, "Why would I wanna eat liver? I don't even like liver!"
I'm like, "No, I said delivered."
She's like, "I heard you say liver!"
I'm like, "I should know what I said."
She's like, "Whatever... I just don't want any liver!"
(Funnier when you realize it's an R. Kelly song.)
Tonight at dinner, my friend broke out an accordion. Someone brought up Wierd Al...it's in the air.
I like this:
"Kurt Cobain of Nirvana said that the band felt they had "made it" after Yankovic recorded "Smells Like Nirvana," a parody of the grunge band's smash hit, "Smells Like Teen Spirit." On his Behind the Music special, Yankovic stated that when he called Cobain to ask if he could parody the song, Cobain gave him permission, then paused and asked, "Um...it's not gonna be about food, is it?" Yankovic responded with "No, it'll be about how no one can understand your lyrics". According to members of Nirvana interviewed for Behind the Music, when they saw the video of the song, they laughed hysterically.
Michael Jackson is also a big fan of Yankovic. Jackson has twice allowed him to parody his songs ("Beat It" and "Bad" became "Eat It" and "Fat"). When he granted Yankovic permission to do "Fat," Jackson allowed him to use the same set built for his own "Bad" video from the Moonwalker video"
Thanky for the link! Oddly enough, we caught Weird Al performing "White & Nerdy" on some VH1 award show this evening. It made me soooooooo haaaaaaaaaapppy!
