Lonely Tylenol


I hadn't seen this before: this is Weird Al Yankovic's parody of Dylan's Subterranean Homesick Blues, the lyrics done entirely in palindromes. A brilliantly realized constraint-based parody, sung perfectly. The original is here.

On the subject of parody, I came across two parodies I did of the 'Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?" joke, of which there are many on the net. See here. Mine are "after" bpNichol and bill bissett. (The line indents are messed up a bit, I haven't figured out how to do that in html yet.

WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS?
