all i can say is... "uncanny". - @Om* 12/8/99

Weird Al Yankovic is a internal linkvegetarian.  his themes seem to revolve around food and Judaism.
graduated Lynwood High School at 16 (valedictorian), obtained a degree in architecture at California Polytechnic State University.  his graduation speech was about the polar ice caps melting, triggering iminent disaster.  he remains interesting even though everything he does is rated PG.
first hit it big with take off on Michael Jackson's _Beat It_ with _Eat It_ MP3atomjacked inventory cache.  not only a perfect combination of comedy, parody, spoof, and sonic imitation, but visually on the money in the video.

More Weird Al Yankovic (that's how it's spelled) songs:
        Yoda    (to the tune of "Lola")
        Stop Draggin' My Car Around    (to the tune of "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around")
        I'll Be Mellow When I'm Dead
        Pac Man     (to the tune of "Taxman")

None of these songs are available as records, however they are often heard on the Dr. Demento Show.  By the way, "Yoda" was the most requested song on his show in 1981.
