My guess is, the latter. :D
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

I wish he'd do more songs like this. But I like random/bizaare humor.

well it's not exactly a 'top 5' for me, but it's bizarre and morbid, so i like it. in my opinion, in the 'top 7' on that first album.
now let me tell you what you DIDN'T win!

Bizarre and morbid is always fun. But I've got a twisted sense of humore. But yeah, some people I know would agree with you.

When I first heard MFITIL a couple of years ago, I did not like it. But now since I have the song, it has grown on me. It's simple and sweet. It's not extraordinary but it's bearable and pleasant.

For some inexplicable reason, I just ADORE this song! I guess I find it catchy and the lung sounds are funny. I like the bizarreness of it!
Is my dude a dweeb?
