Yes, I'm pretty sure that most of us knew that.

I like this song.

It's not necessarily "funny", but rather just the absurdity of the palindromes when put together which make it funny.

It makes it downright hilarious that it's jumbled in with a Dylan-esque style.
That's what you get when you let your heart win.

:whoot: Time to rehash another WOWAY Member grudge now that Syndicated Inc fizzled out again!


Edit: You can read through this thread for a fun perspective on the Bob "video and the Dylan connection. (Spoiler: I totally guessed it first 8) )
You have quickly thought up such matchless phrase?

I love it. I love it. This made my day. The quote (in the comments) was:
And look how YOUNG Dylan was! A mere babe!



But the video they were looking at was Bob.

Al, Bermuda & Jay's take was so convincing that they seem to have believed that Al just re-lettered Dylan's placards. :Y
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

:whoot: Why yes, I am feeling too hot to hoot.

I am Anon, and I managed to tease a whole Al-related blog post, with a complimentary mention of Bob and a video link, out of a non-Al fan. :peace:

Well done, Helen!
4 words that Al said to me that blew me away:

"How's Problem Child doing?" - 7/12/11

So awesome!
