    This song isn't really too new and I am sure some of you have heard of it, but I thought I'd post the lyrics as I think its funny and some people might like it. Its a parody of It's All About The Benjamins by Puffy, another song I like a lot.

    I can't believe that Weird Al is still around! I thought he was dead or something!

    Years ago, he had planned to do a concert in my city (relatively small). He didn't sell enough tickets, thus there was no concert. That made me laugh.

    I thought he would have surely died after his 'hit' television show. Kids around the world (including myself) are dumber from viewing even a small glimpse of that program.

    I like apples.

    Well, if ya want to actually view some fine Weird Al videos on the net, here are the two links!

    http://www.sagabegins.com/ ("The Phantom Menace" set to the tune of "American Pie"!)

    or.. the aforementioned "All about the Pentiums" which is verrrry funny...

    http://www.thepentiums.com/

    Enjoy!

    And both of these are pretty recent, so I don't think he's dead, retired, abducted by aliens or whatever....
