"People realize that when 'Weird Al' wants to go parody, it's not meant to make them look bad... it's meant to be a tribute." ~ Al Yankovic

********************


My youngest daughter, Jamie, is probably one of the world's biggest Weird Al Yankovic fans as his music is something that her father will actually let her listen to (he won't allow her to listen to her beloved AC/DC as it goes against his Christian beliefs) so I thought it would be nice to post a little something here for her.

With
American Idol becoming the talk of the TV airwaves again these past two weeks it also seemed like a fairly good time to post this in honor of last year's AI winner - Taylor Hicks. I, personally, really liked the guy and was quite happy to see him win over the annoying Katharine McPhee (unlike many others I was never struck with "McPheever").

If Weird Al has parodied you then I think it means that you've really made it in the music business so Taylor should be quite proud of this little video brought to us by the good folks over at JibJab who also do some hilarious political videos. I can't wait to see what they put out for this next round of elections; if it's at all like the stuff they made when Bush - Kerry ran its sure to take some of the sting out of this current round of political overkill!

In the meantime, enjoy and have a laugh or two - I believe we could all use on every once in awhile!
