Weird Al’s “Bob”

Ok, I went through my Weird Al phase as a kid, and I don’t pay attention to him anymore, but this is pretty brilliant. A takeoff of “Subterranean Homesick Blues” with palindromes as lyrics.

Dumbest Congressman

The scene: Fairbanks, Alaska, 1994. Congressman Don Young, already in office for 20 years, is on the stump preaching the virtues of Newt Gingrichs Republican revolution to a group of high school students. Just look at all the wasteful things the federal government does with taxpayers money, he tells them. The National Endowment for the Arts, for example, funds art involving “people doing offensive things … things that are absolutely ridiculous.” One student asks, “Like what?”

“Buttfucking,” replies the great scourge of obscenity and instructor of youth.
