You're Pitiful

No, not YOU!

"Weird Al" Yankovic has a new album out, and you gotta give the guy his due, he has one or two parodies on every one of his CDs that make you laugh out loud.

Frinstance, "Canadian Idiot" on his latest just made me snort, especially this couplet:

They think their silly accent is so cute
Can't understand a thing they're talking a-boot

So I told you that to tell you this: one song he did for the album, "You're Pitiful," based on James Blunt's gag-fest which will join "Feelings" and "Run Joey Run" in the pantheon of "songs to end the party and clear the room at 3:00 A.M." classics, he had to leave off because Blunt's label freaked (even though Blunt himself gave approval) and wouldn't allow Al to release it. Fools.

History will record these times as having a three-way tie in terms of the most clueless entities on the planet at the start of the century: the George W. Bush administration, Big Record Labels, and Scientology.

Anyway, it's free on Al's website. Scroll down to "YOU'RE PITIFUL!" (and while you're at it, snag "Don't Download This Song"). Or, right-click on the title of this post if you just want "You're Pitiful." Lyrics are here.
