Twenty-five years and three days later, reality takes a tip from fiction and charts “Weird Al” Yankovic’s new album Mandatory Fun at number one, with over 100,000 sales during it’s first week. In his 31 year long career, with 14 studio albums to his name, this is the first time he’s hit the top- and the first comedy album by ANY artist to hit #1 since 1960! Congratulations, Al!
Do you take your red snapper…or do you take what’s IN THE BOX?
You won a drink from the FIREHOSE!
I was expecting Who Let the Dogs Out or something like that but oh my god this is so much better.
Thanks to both Bugs Bunny and The Lone Ranger, I’ve heard the finale to this countless times, but I think it’s the first time I’ve ever listened to the entire William Tell Overture.

I would feel like I was in the movie the 5th Element and I would never leave my house
shovin’ your girlfriend out of bed at like 7am so you can use the desk for your laptop
or y’know what, forget it, just seal her in there like a coffin
Rushing all your friends out after dinner so you can have a private rave.
Pretending your apartment unit is your best friend Transformer and whispering your closest held secrets to it at night.
I liked this guy’s apartment a lot better before I noticed that there was a door that closed around the toilet/shower area. I was hopin’ that when he invited friends over you had to poop out in public like in prison.
This is neither a “large bedroom” nor a “fully equipped office”. What is that, a Full Size bed? Where does his computer, printer, and office supplies live when the desk is recessed? Also, he appears to be one of “those people” who doesn’t own a TV or a radio.
I can see this working as a college room or a hotel room, but I would never live in a tiny space like that. This definitely isn’t for couples; especially those who work different shifts. You get up at 4AM, while she gets to sleep until 7. Oops, nope! Got to slide the bed closed, so I can shower! Sorry, babe!
For the record, I find Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines morally reprehensible (but incredibly catchy).
This Weird Al version made me laugh and laugh and laugh. It speaks to my inner English professor.
I almost choked to death trying not to laugh out loud watching this at work earlier today.
God bless you Al Yankovic, you’ve taken a catchy yet disgusting song and actually made it catchy and enjoyable.
memorydragon bless you for bringing this to my attention
Bless Weird Al for making this masterpiece
I am like hardcore anti-prescriptivist and I actually enjoyed this Weird Al is a wizard
Q:"I'm a loner but everyone (falls in love with me) wants to be my partner. Even though I have no super powers I'm one of the most well known and respected members of the Justice League. I'm tough but it's just to hide how I was hurt on the inside by the death of my parents. Also I'm super rich and good looking. I've had many lovers but I've never found 'the one.' And I'm surrounded by a harem of attractive young men, just friends though." love Bruce, but really, he's the Ultimate Mary-Sue.
he has so many people loyal to him when all he’s ever done is hurt them
women fall in love with him left and right even though he’s kind of a cabbage
he keeps people at arms-length “for their own safety”
super smart and trained by the best
just. Mary Sue. totally. no question.
but Cass is the one being touted as a Mary Sue? Cassandra Cain? Cass, who has a serious learning disability comparable to severe dyslexia that frustrates her and her family? Cass, who can be so arrogant and yet also so self-hating? Cass, who killed someone as a child and it scarred her so very deeply? Cass, who is not nearly loved enough for the complex, amazing character that she is, who has both glaring flaws and wonderful attributes (LIKE ANY FLESHED-OUT CHARACTER SHOULD), who has been unceremoniously wiped from DC by what can hardly be called anything but straight-up racism and ableism, to the surprise of no one and the fury of her fans. Cass, who HAS SO MUCH FUCKING POTENTIAL AS A PERSON AND WOMAN AND PERSON OF COLOR WITH DISABILITIES AND SHE IS THE ONE BEING CALLED A MARY SUE?
no. Fuck no.
I think some people have no clue what the definition of “Mary Sue” is. (same can be said of most people who accuse others of “strawman attacks”)
Client: Hello, I asked one of my friends and he said that you built our site using Hotmail.
Me: Excuse me! What do you mean?
Client: You used Hotmail to build my site.
Me: We can’t do that, nobody can. Hotmail is owned by Microsoft and they offer free email accounts. It’s not a development environment.
Client: My friend is a computer expert and he is sure.
Me: Is your friend next to you?
Me: Can you put him through?
Friend: You made my friend’s site with Hotmail. Admit it.
Me: Sir, we can’t do that. What made you think it was created using Hotmail.
Friend: All the pages in the site end with .html.
Yep. He’s a “computer expert”, alright!
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
A woman was left gobsmacked when she learned the gold ring she stumbled across in a field was 2,000 years old.
#THERE ARE LITERALLY THREE MOVIES AND A HUGE-ASS BOOK EXPLAINING WHY KEEPING IT IS A BAD IDEA
"…it felt like a gift from the underworld," Lundin told The Local. "It was my magnificent ring. I didn’t want to give it up."
LISTEN TO ELROND!
But, as was recently demonstrated across my dash, no one listens to Elrond.*doom*
