"Do you find it ironic that your career and success has outlasted many of the folks that you've done parodies of in the past?"

Retro Crush has a nice interview with Weird Al. Make sure to click on the video for "White and Nerdy," which has about a thousand funny things in it. By the way, did you know Weird Al was a high school valedictorian? That's something I learned on "Theme Time Radio with Bob Dylan." Bob listed a bunch of celebrities who were high school valedictorians. For some reason the only other one I can remember is Cindy Crawford. Anyway, don't you love Weird Al?
But the one question that came up that a lot of people wanted me to ask you was, do you feel that you should have done more to catch Osama bin Laden?

That I should have? Every day I feel the guilt that I didn't do more and take advantage of my situation, back when I had a chance.

Is it possible that Al has found the Fountain of Youth? He doesn't look like he's aged at all.

Ann Althouse said...

Telecomedian: The Fountain of Youth is a sense of humor.

Knoxgirl: That's the thing that made me laugh out loud the first time I watched:

Only question I
Ever thought was hard
Was do I like Kirk
Or do I like Picard

And he's in bed with pictures of Kirk and Picard above him.

Loved the Segway too.

It's common lore among undergraduates in chemical engineering that Cindy Crawford received a scholarship and studied chemical engineering in college. (Briefly.)

She had better prospects as a college dropout than most of us.
