    So far he's released Word Crimes (Blurred Lines), Foil (Royals), and Tacky (Happy). Pretty entertaining, especially if you grew up liking Weird Al.

    Not gonna lie, I don't find him near as amusing as I did when I was 10.

    They are all great, but the Word Crimes one I find to be especially awesome.

    Word Crimes one is great, very clever. He actually shows a lot of intelligence in many of his songs; not sure if he writes all of his own music but he has to be a pretty smart guy.

    Love the Alanis Morissette reference. Ironic? Um, no. None of the stuff you listed is ironic in any way. That song makes me want to punch stuff.

    I had a teacher in middle school that used that song to teach the meaning of irony. American public schools, people.

    Wasn't there only one thing that is actually ironic in her song?



    ANd I love that Weird Al is doing one song a day for 8 days.

    I can't even think of one thing that would be ironic...just a bunch of unfortunate events.

    Leaving Yoda off this list is a travesty. Shame on you.

    If I remember right, I think Weird Al once stated in an interview that he really really wanted to take Alanis out to see a movie with him.

    not a parody, but I remember LOVING "the night santa went crazy" as a kid. That and the Alternative Polka.

    He writes everything himself (other than the music of the songs he parodies, of course).
