Weird: The Al Yankovic Story

If you share the doctor‘s strange sense of humour and sensibility, then you probably agree that “Weird Al” Yankovic is a genius and that many of his classic parodies — such as Gump, Amish Paradise, and It’s All About the Pentiums (as well as new classics such as CNR and Craigslist) — are so much better than the original songs they are based on that there’s just no comparison.

And you’ll probably love this new spoof trailer for “Weird: The Al Yankovic Story” on FunnyOrDie.com, which is hilarious.

Proof that United, and Other, Airlines Break More Than Guitars

As regular readers will have observed, I’m a big fan of Dave Carroll‘s work on the United Breaks Guitars trilogy (despite not being a fan of country or bluegrass because the trilogy was very well done).

But, as we all know, they don’t just break guitars, and as proof, Gadling recently collected six YouTube videos showing careless baggage handlers in action that would be funny if they weren’t so scary!

See how many you can get through!

  3. Continental Baggage Handler Abuses Bags
  4. Iberia/BA Heathrow Baggage Handlers
