Ignorant and Generally Misguided Internet Comments about Al

by CharlesNelson » Tue Jun 24, 2014 6:02 pm

Do we have a thread where you can vent about "misinformed" (or worse) comments pertaining to Al? If not, we need one and here it is.

On Al's latest Instagram post, the new propaganda poster with Asian characters:

"Is it gonna be a parody album or music you made??? @alfredyankovic"

Kindly fall in a hole. -_-

On the other hand, some of the comments aren't bad. Like "Kim Jong Al".

This, I did like. Maybe there's time to change the album title? #alpuns #kony2012

Well, I'm not the biggest fan of Al puns for album titles. They should be used sparingly, anyway. But pretty good for an Internet comment. :-)

A "Strange Facts" Twitter account (@tstrangefacts) tweeted: " "Weird Al" Yankovic finished elementary school two years early, was valedictorian of his high school, and earned a degree in architecture."

Am I the only one who doesn't think these facts are strange? Just because the guy does silly music, he should have an IQ of 81?

To be fair, those would all be interesting facts about...well, just about anyone. I can't say any of those things about myself. :-)

The most frequent comment I hear from people who kind of know about Al is "Yea he's quite funny but I think it's a bit rude how he made fun of Nirvana, especially because Cobain is dead" :sadeyes:

I don't think misinformed or uninformed comments should be met with such anger. When I first started here I thought "germs" was a parody and I really had no idea that Al recorded style parodies instead of just original songs. There's still some of his 80s songs that I don't know anything about.

I think potential new fans should be treated with respect and not met with blatant elitism. Rude or intentionally coarse comments on the other hand should just be ignored. Also we don't need a Thread that comments on other comments. Read a book guys.
