    he really isn't as "witty" as people might make out, see the ending song of bremner bird and fortune every week Sunday @ 8 for sum wit. Some of his songs are just not funny, even the best are mediocre. Amish Paradise is good though!

    He's quite clever, and some of his songs are quite funny, but not really in a witty way.

    Oh come on, for the most part, parody songs only change the words, but he rewrites the entire song, as in the saga begins

    i think he's pretty brilliant, although some sound alot better than the others. Amish paradise, bimbo no.5 and What if god smoked cannibis are all good - does anyone know where we can get more of his music?

    go to the official werid al yankovic website and it list all the sings he has done and all the ones that, despite being credited to him, he hasn't had anything to do with.

    Some people online think that just because it is a comedy record, it is done by weird al.

    I think Weird Al's Angry White Boy Polka is an absolute masterpiece! It is the greatest parody of all time!

    His videos of Smells Like Nirvana, Like a Surgeon and Amish Paradise are all pretty good. Nirvana one has some really hilarious bits. Good stuff Al!!

    Honestly, if you haven't heard Angry White Boy Polka, you should download it. It's great fun!
