Like every other boy growing up in the ’80s and ’90s, I went through my Weird Al phase. His parodies of pop songs were some of the first things I ever thought were hilarious (my apologies to the cast of Who’s the Boss?).
Now that I’m a board-certified humorologist (that’s correct*), I enjoy writing my own parodies from time to time. However, my performance in “Dry Me Maybe” will make it abundantly clear that I have absolutely zero aspirations of turning this into anything more than a hobby. Or at least that I shouldn’t.
I share these with you here, then, simply for shits and giggles.
And speaking of, who the hell came up with that phrase? Because it’s fantastic.
*Do you know what Seinfeld exchange I’m paraphrasing there? If so, then … well, I guess I’ve still got nothing for you. Perhaps I didn’t think this through.
