lol that's an awesome song/video....Weird Al's schtick just doesn't get old. I love the Prince reference too, as the two of them don't exactly have a working relationship (Prince is a dbag, basically)

The new parody of "Happy" is great, too.

And yeah, the lengthy bash of Prince is pretty incredible.

Ha, I used to listen to Weird Al on cassettes back in the day. Great stuff, and something that my kids like too.

The artwork on Prince's last album was from the Chapelle shirts vs blouses skit, so prince cant take himself too too seriously.

Check it. I'm not smart enough to follow most of what's in this thread. Matter of fact, I'm pretty damned close to being plumb stupid when it comes to proper anything.
So, before I submit what you're about to read to my local newspaper, I was hoping y'all could give it a good going over and make the necessary corrections. Sorry, I can't pay for your services but, maybe I could do some yard work or something of that nature for you to settle things up. Now, on to the show!

A Southern Belle was flying from L.A. back to Atlanta. After an hour or so in the air, she says to a woman in the seat next to her, “So, where are you from?” The uppity city-slicker chick looks her dead in the eye and says, “Stupid hillbilly girl, don’t you know not to end a sentence with a preposition?” The Southern Belle thinks on it for just a minute and says, “So, where is it that you’re from, b***h.”

Thanks in advance for your time and expertise.

I've probably seen Weird Al in concert more times than anyone else. Hard to believe that 30 years after "Eat It" Weird Al is still going strong, while the late Michael Jackson is remembered as a creepy probable-pedophile.

I don't mean to single you out for the usage of "alot", but it's a thread about grammar, punctuation, and all that jazz. :o

According to Amazon, my copy of the new 10th edition of Black's Law Dictionary was just delivered to my house.

Other artists Al has successfully parodied and outlasted include:

Toni Basil
Coolio
Greg Kihn
Chamillionaire
Billy Ray Cyrus
Crash Test Dummies
Hammer
The Knack

Not to mention the dozens in his Polka mixes.

A pretty remarkable career, really.
