I think this song deserves it's own topic. Frank's 2000" TV is definitely an underrated song that often doesn't get the respect it deserves. It is actually extremely clever. I find myself listening to it a lot. I especially like the line "And I'm mighty proud to say, now I can watch 'The Simpsons' from 30 blocks away!" :lol: Discuss what you like(or dislike) about the song.
Oh by the way, I've cracked the code.

This song is one of my favorites. I'm still trying to picture a 2000 inch TV in my head and what kind of room you could fit it in.

I love Frank's 2000" TV!

It's a great song. That'd be one extremely huge tv! hehe!

Did we do the math on this once? 2000 inches is 166.666... feet. Since TV screens are measured diagonally, how tall would this thing be? Any math whizzes out there want to take a stab at it?

I'm almost absolutely sure this was a You Don't Know Al question.

I like this song. One of the strong points to Alapalooza. Though, the album is a strong point in itself.

I am definitely gonna have to listen to this song on headphones.

BTW, there's no way of knowing how tall or wide the screen is, even though we know the diagonal measurement, unless we know one of the other dimensions or the ratio of height to width of the screen, is there?

~OE, reflecting that geometry class was a LONG time ago
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.
