Put down your chainsaw and listen to me

Weird Al Yankovic is now eligible for the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame.

I should sign the petition, but it actually requires you to print it out and send it in. That must be why they only have three people on it so far. At least if I were to sign it, my name wouldn’t be joined by the likes of I.P. Freely, Mike Rotch and Homer Sexual.

I consider myself a fan- I do own more than a few of his albums/tapes/CDs (okay, no albums) and I know the words to some of his parodies better than the songs they’re based off of, and I think that UHF is one of the funniest movies ever made. But I never realized Al has been around this long. I don’t know why, but this makes me feel old.

But I figure he deserves it as much as that Elvis guy.
