I love to laugh, part II

I've always liked "Weird" Al. I like him so much, I know where to put the quotation marks and I know how to spell the world "weird" (no, there's no "i" after "e"). In the beginning, I taped his albums on cassette. I laughed at his FAT video when MTV wasn't too aloof to play it. And now, well, I bask in his genius.

It's not so much the song. Yes, it's good. Very good. Some might call it a return to form even. But to put Donny Osmond in there dancing? That's the genius move in my book. Moves Donny up on the coolness scale for me (cool by association, whether you agree or not). It's almost like the video was MADE for him dancing like a fool in his leather blazer.

I don't know how you do it, Dainon. I just don't know HOW you always seem to find these wonderful gems.


I come here for the good stuff, G.

I'm not a huge Weird Al Fan...but watching Donny dance was classic. This is right up there with the Hoff.

I nearly thought it WAS the Hoff first time I saw it. True story. Great minds ...
