Parodist, accordionist, and Idolator patron saint “Weird Al” Yankovic turns 50 today, and what better way to celebrate a half-century of his existence than to post a bunch of his videos? End the week laughing, that’s what I say. OK, get ready for the food jokes!“I Love Rocky Road”

“I Lost On Jeopardy”
“Dare to be Stupid”

“UHF”

(This movie is pretty much out of date, isn’t it? Well, at least until Ion or MyNetworkTV give up the ghost…)“Smells Like Nirvana”

“Angry White Boy Polka”

“You’re Pitiful” (heh heh)
And a few clips from AlTV, his takeover of MTV that would air every so often:“Harvey The Wonder Hamster” theme song
AlTV T-shirt ad
AlTV News (1992)
Jokes about Guns N’ Roses and artists who are willing to spread their endorsements far and wide? Some things never change. Happy birthday Al! Without you, the Internet would probably be a lot less… Internet.Al Yankovic [Twitter] [HT: Rocks Off]
