So I found out that Weird Al received a degree from California Polytechnic State University. He attended that college after he graduated high school at the ripe age of 16. He decided he hated architecture and then tried to get a job at McDonald's. They denied him employment due to being overqualified.
What I found to be most awesome about Weird Al is that while he loves to parody songs, he always gets permission to parody the song first from both the record label and the artist who performed the original song. Granted, this is mostly awesome because he is not required to do so legally.
I think it's awesome that he's found such a cool way to express himself but still likes to make sure the artist is okay with it before he will push it out. A lot of respect goes out to someone like that.
