If Weird Al Was A Triathlete

If you have been following along the literary roller coaster that is my blog, you undoubtedly have surmised that my flavor of humor is “unique.” I like to think of my antics as packets of side splitting goodness mixed with youthful awesome. Like broccoli smothered in chocolate.

I am scientific proof that repeated viewings of MTV, Airplane, and Mystery Science Theater can have permanent ramifications on the mind (even worse than watching Roseanne Barr sing the National Anthem).

As I was watching Airplane yet again today, I began to reminisce about another of my childhood laughter dads, Weird Al. Being a kid with a sister who was a college DJ and thus being forced to watch the first video ever on MTV, Weird Al and his parodies were a win win. For my younger readers, MTV used to show music videos before they started showing hour long shows of metaphorical bowel movements. I don’t care if your a straight laced, always brush your teeth three times a day, type of square; you cant deny the humor of:

So, this got me day dreaming on the treadmill today: What kind of songs would Weird Al make if he was an gun ho triathlete? I cant believe I was able to come up with ten. If you don’t know what these names are parodies of…you need to get this thing called iTunes…..
