({{facepalm}}ing) I was afraid of that.

** And of course, the ending - [[spoiler: they wo.wound up forgetting the onions]].
* The video for ''[[IncrediblyLamePun Polka]] [[Music/LadyGaga Face]]''. It's the first music video for a polka medley, and ''boy'' does it show. Highlights include: the "baby" snippet, where a baby Music/JustinBieber is looking forward to get some breast milk (as a nod to his LikesOlderWomen status) [[TakeThat only to be given a pacifier instead]], the "I kissed a girl" part where Music/KatyPerry "hopes her boyfriend doesn't mind", [[GirlOnGirlIsHot with his response being a couple of thumbs-ups]], Music/LadyGaga being generally even crazier than usual, and Weird Al's own appearance as his own SuperDeformed avatar. About that last one, we'd say UncannyValley if only he wasn't that funny. And awesome.
** The Womanizer. My God, the Womanizer.
** It's essentially a professional Website/{{Newgrounds}} video.
* "Good Enough For Now," from ''Polka Party,'' is three minutes of the most backhanded compliments ever put on wax.
* Just about every line of "Confessions Part III", but especially when he admits to dressing up like Creator/ShirleyTemple (or, in the live shows, Sarah Palin) and spanking himself with a hockey stick.

Some of Usher's dance moves and gestures fit the lyrics ''so well'', it was uncanny--for example, "when I'm kissing you, I fantasize you're a midget!" plays when Usher kneels in front of the woman and hugs her legs, and the spoken part in the bridge "remember that shirt you got me for my birthday? Well, I returned it for store credit.[[note]]That-that thing was hideous, what were you ''thinking''?[[/note]]" plays just after Usher has stripped off his undershirt in the video. At other junctures, the lyrics make Usher's dramatic gesturing narmtastically funny: for instance, he agonizes on his knees over giving his significant other buttered toast he dropped and picked up off of the floor ''as if it's the worst thing he's ever done''. One gets the sense that Al was writing the lyrics while watching the original music video.
* "Weasel Stomping Day" from ''Straight Outta Lynwood'' starts off as an amusing parody of all those upbeat, cheesy songs from holiday specials. Then the actual weasel stomping begins. It's so very wrong, but [[RefugeInAudacity yet so very hilarious]].[[note]]And worry not - [[NoAnimalsWereHarmed no actual weasels were harmed in the making of the song]]. The sound effects were provided by smashing fresh fruits and veggies. Along with his wife, baby, and pet parrot, according to the Making Of DVD.[[/note]]
* The entirety of "Albuquerque" with these special mentions:
** "IT'S GOOD FOR YOU!!"
** Al graphically explaining the plane crash and then telling how he survived:
-->'Cause I had my tray table up\\
And my seat back in the full upright position\\
[[EarWorm Had my tray table up]]\\
[[EarWorm And my seat back in the full upright position]]\\
[[RuleOfThree Had my tray table up]]\\
[[OverlyLongGag And my seat back in the full upright position]]\\
A-HA-HA-HAAA! HA-HA-HAAA! Haaa...
** "It's some big fat hermaphrodite with Music/AFlockOfSeagulls haircut and only one nostril. Aw man, I hate it when I'm right!"
** The entire donut shop scene. On tours, Al would extend the OverlyLongGag with different kinds of donuts, some fictional (e.g. "Do you have any Creator/HalleBerry donuts?").
** "The world was our burrito. So we got married and we bought us a house and had two beautiful children, Nathaniel and ''Film/SuperFly''!
** [[SarcasmMode "NO, I want you to cut off my arms and legs with a chainsaw!"]] ''({{beat}})'' [[SarcasmBlind "So I did."]]
** In the liner notes, the lyrics are cut off partway through this song, replaced by this message:
-->''"... you know what? The rest of these lyrics aren't gonna fit on here. There's just no room left. What a drag, huh? I guess we didn't plan this out very well... probably should've used a smaller font or a bigger piece of paper or something. Sorry.
