    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I saw him in concert. His best song was probably his version of Nirvana.

    "Nirvana" is a song?

    I'm confused. Post a Weird Al song which is naturally a parody of another song or is somebody doing parodies of Weird Al's parodies?

    Weird Al creates some original (non-parody) work; most of it is polka. Also, some of his songs are style parodies; they don't imitate a particular song but a genre.

    I like Smells Like Nirvana partly because it's one of the few songs that pokes fun at the song it's paroding.

    Anyway, too much analysis; not enough video. For a weird Weird Al, check out Bob.

    I was thinking the same thing.
    Who does parodies of Weird Al?

    Apparently, there's also a bunch of parody songs out there incorrently attributed to Weird Al.
