He who's tired of Weird Al is tired of life.

Interesting? For sure. Entertaining? Definitely. Clever? AbsoLutely. But as much as I love them, very few actually make me laugh out loud.

Same here I love his music but I never laugh

In comparison to the ~160 songs in his discography, I can see how it'd be unfunny in comparison, but I don't know if I'd call it overrated. It gave Al the kind of exposure to have the next hundred songs be released in the first place.
Sever your leg, please. It's the greatest day.

* I would've liked to see Al do at least one other country song parody ("Achy Breaky Heart" and "You Belong with Me" are the only two country songs he's ever done). Granted, we already had Cledus T. Judd making a name for himself as a country parodist, but outside a few exceptions like "Any Man of Mine", Cledus rarely parodied country songs that crossed over to pop. Surely Al could've made something out of a Dixie Chicks, Shania, or Garth song in the late 90s-early 2000s, or done something based on Sam Hunt, Lady Antebellum, Luke Bryan, etc. more contemporarily.

* I liked the peacock suit for "Perform This Way" in part because my last name is Peacock (no, really). However, I can see why he does the octopus/ice cream cone thing now, because it looks less baggy and cumbersome.

* I like "Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch" because of how lame it is.

* "Eat It" took a few listens to grow on me. I think that's because "Bad" was the first MJ song I ever heard and thus my favorite, and I heard "Fat" well before "Eat It", so I always held more of a soft spot for "Fat".

* "Stop Forwarding That Crap to Me" is my favorite song of his. I know I've heard positive things about it, but I don't think anyone else has ever ranked it as their favorite.
