Al doesn't even get Grammys anymore for his hard work, now that the category specifies \"Spoken Word Comedy.\" A raw deal indeed.


An action the Grammy committee took because they didn't want the Comedy Recording category to become known as the "Weird Al" Yankovic Category. All that spell checking!

4) Santa: Referred to as a \"Yuletide Rambo.\" Who played Rambo? Stallone.  

Weird Al: Wrote the \"Theme from Rocky XIII.\" Who played Rocky? Stallone. These two references indirectly link Santa to Weird Al.


You missed the obvious connection. Remember Al in a latex Rambo suit?


QUOTE
\"fat\" Weird Al has been known to beat up his \"fat\" alter ego \"Santa,\" who represents the darker side of Al which he must suppress.

I think I'm on to something here!


Hmmm... maybe so, maybe so. But the only bad part is that Santa ends up in the clink or dead.

We don't want that to happen to our boy.

Oh, frabjous day, calloo, callay! NARAS has repealed the Yankovic Exclusionary Rule. Comedy may now be spoken or sung, so there's a chance once more, starting next year or whenever Al gets his next album out.

Poodle Hat would be in this coming year's grammy eligibility, I assume, so perhaps PH will get nominated.

Thats awesome! Maybe the Grammy's will get interesting now. Although I am almost positive that it will be in the un-aired portion they do at like noon. But at least we can get Al some more Grammy's. And maybe George Carlin can win for something that isnt a book on tape

Last year's comedy award was aired during the real ceremony. I think they air a few of the smaller awards like that sometimes for some reason...

rboy27--

That's how it was, but OE posted above that the rule has been changed again. Great news for Al!
