IT’S REAL

although not as impressive as LucasArts would have me think

Oh, what on earth would make a man decide to do that kind of thing?
Oh, windin’ up twenty-one thousand, one hundred forty pounds of string
What was he trying to prove, who was he trying to impress
Why did he build it, how did he do, it was anybody’s guess
Where did he get the twine, what was goin’ through his mind
Did it just seem like a good idea at the time

Question: do non-Americans think this is weird? More than Americans do?

Love this to death!  Perfect for the Fallout crowd.  Best Christmas song ever.  I loved it back when I heard it in the 80s and I still love it now.

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 1963! Congratulations, Al!

Mad props to Weird Al for taking a disgusting rape anthem and turning into a catchy, Schoolhouse Rock-esque anthem about grammar

Also the video itself is great, too
