Weird Al Yankovic
From Encyclopedia Dramatica
Weird Al Yankovic is a lyrical troll who has parodied every song ever from at least 100 years ago to now, with the exception of any actually good songs, most likely because any changes can only make them better, regardless of what they are. Weird Al is goddamn good at hilariously renaming the songs for his parodies, "American Idiot" becomes "Canadian Idiot", GENIUS!! The only redeeming quality he has is that fans are expecting Weird Al to create a parody of Chocolate Rain for his next album.
Weird Al is one of the few celebrities who are a vegetarian, and according to inside sources, he attempts, like all dumb-ass vegetarians, to guilt people into becoming vegetarian as well. He also claims to be the inventor of the "Twinkie Wiener Sandwich", which in itself makes him batshit insane. It is believed that parodying shitty music could be some sort of immortality elixir, explaining why Weird Al has been around so long. And if that turns out to be true, that's fucking copyrighted to ED.
TL;DR: all parody songs that you hear on the Internet, regardless, were always made by Weird Al. (See Below for Proof.)
His fans just LOOOOVE repeating lyrics from his "classic songs". These virgins freak out whenever a new song is made, for example: when White and Nerdy came out, there were mass circle jerks held by nerds the world over.
The Wikipedia page on Atlantic Records is constantly being vandalized with the words "YOU SUCK!" like in the White & Nerdy video. Typically, this results in recieving the banhammer and the page being semi-protected. ED's article on it, on the other hand, is very factual, and is in no way, shape, or form trying to trick you.
- Butthurt Canaedian (named TORONTO CP), bitching about the lyrics in Al’s song “Canadian Idiot” says how “Americans know little about their northern neighbours”. Again, no one cares but still very lulzy.
Weird Al’s resurrection of “Gangsta’s Paradise” offended rapper “Coolio” because he found out his song was better. So he caused lulz and drama backstage at the 1996 Grammy awards with this rant:
He also created a song where he bitches about Weird Al for a segment of the song. Quoted in the link above. The rapper wanted the song to be taken down, but it wasn’t, turns out it wasn’t even his song in the first place, lol. Still Coolio had no problem cashing Weird Al's check for using the song, though it's not surprising for another nigger to cash a free check.
The effectiveness of this tactic is unfortunately limited by the obviously lulzy intent of using the song. If the target finds the song funny, you're doing it wrong and simply suggest you try other Methods. However, if you are successful tell them to follow the instructions on the banner above.
The One Who Started It ALL
It is in fact, no doubt, that every parody song you hear to on the internets was created by Weird Al, unless it's shitty. It will whether it’s himself Weird Al Yankovic or his evil twin, Weird Al Yankovich. Music sharing sites are full of these! You could spread the word and set people straight, or you could just let it go. Here are some examples of his unknown masterpieces:
- White and Nerdy
- Weird Al's Latest
- Weird Al pwns
- Fat Popular again thanks to Jacko's death
- “Why is the song White and Nerdy not considered racist?” Typical white guy screaming racist on Yahoo Answers.
- Moar YA! Lulz. Check the "Other Answers".
- Lulzy interviews with various celebrities on his show "AL TV". Click for a good lol.
- Moar assorted Weird Al clips, if you're a stalker.
