Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on Weird 'Al' Yankovic's "Bedrock Anthem", a parody of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' "Under the Bridge" and "Give It Away Now"] I didn't think it was very good. I mean "Yabba, dabba do"? I don't know. What did you think?... I mean I like "Weird" Al, but everyone has swung and missed. Except for me of course. See more »
