* His [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rIGOch6SPdA interview]] for the ''Anime/Pokemon2000'' soundtrack, for which he wrote and performed "Polkamon," discussing how the root of all great music is polka and voicing genuine concern that there might be ''another'' polka on the soundtrack,

* During his live shows, he sometimes takes the joke behind "Smells Like Nirvana" to the next level. He'll sing "And I forgot the next verse..." then stand there in absolute silence with a confused look on his face, as if he really did forget the words. He starts singing again just in time for "Well, never mind."

** Or this [[RefugeInAudacity utterly audacious line]]: (doesn't help that in the video, this part was sung by Margaret Cho, who was big)

Most of Weird Al's songs have at least one Funny Moment by their very nature.

Most Music/WeirdAlYankovic is practically the personification of Weird Al's "funny". His songs have at least one Funny Moment by their very nature.

Added DiffLines:

** The fact that the original version is so [[{{Narm}} over-the-top]][[note]]For the uninformed, it involves a LoveDodecahedron, copious amounts of gun misuse, a midget and the mafia. It also goes on for an innumerable amount of installments, literally ever single one of which ends with a ShockingSwerve. It's one of [[SoBadItsGood those works]].[[/note]] that the only way Al could made it funny was to have the lyrics be as banal as possible.

* Just about every line of "Confessions Part III", but especially when he admits to dressing up like Creator/ShirleyTemple and spanking himself with a hockey stick.

* When he was on ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' in 1994, all sorts of crazy stuff occurred- he tried to buy an ''umlaut'' (that's the twin-dot thing heavy metal bands use), he [[MythologyGag tried to buy a TV for $500]], and when it came time for the BonusRound, he spent all ten seconds slowly saying the solution, then ran around the set cheering before leaping into Pat's arms. And [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UIoyTsbRdII then in 2013]], he recounted a story from behind-the-scenes regarding fellow contestant Music/JamesBrown.....
