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

!!Songs and Videos
* The video for "Eat It". From the SpitTake onward, it skews every visual cue from Music/MichaelJackson's "Beat It" video with unerring accuracy. And funny as hell.
** It's also the parody song that put Weird Al on the map.
* Special mention for the "Smells Like Music/{{Nirvana}}" music video. ''ALL OF IT.''
** To put it in perspective - Music/KurtCobain himself cracked up at the video. When the author of a song laughs at its parody, that's a non-subjective SugarWiki/{{Funny Moment|s}} right there.
** Speaking of "Smells Like Nirvana", here's a lyric from the live version:
-->"And I forgot the next verse....
--> (Several [[{{Beat}} beats]])
-->...Oh well, whatever, never mind"
** The original lyrics for that point in the song are pretty funny, too:
-->'"And I forgot the next verse,
-->oh well I guess it pays to rehearse...
-->The lyric sheet's so hard to find,
-->What are the words? Oh, nevermind"
** You can tell this helped Kurt crack up quite a bit from this.
-->Well I'm yellin', and we're playing,
-->But I don't know what I'm saying!
-->A banana, dadadada, nananana, badabada... *cue gibberish*
** "*garglegarglegarglegarglegarglegargle...*"
** Al's guitar turning into rubber.
** It's hard to bargle nawdle zouss ??? / With all these marbles in my mouth.
* [[ Amish Paradise]], particularly this gem:
-->''A local boy kicked me in the butt last week
-->''I just smiled at him and [[TurnTheOtherCheek turned the other cheek]]
-->''I really don't care, in fact I wish him well
-->''[[MoodWhiplash Cause I'll be laughing my head off when he's burning in hell"]]
* "Dare To Be Stupid" has his announcement that "Mashed potatoes can be your friends"...while emerging from a large pot with [[DeclarativeFinger a finger raised]] and an "AndKnowingIsHalfTheBattle" expression. It takes a great comedian to keep a straight face saying that line and having mashed potatoes in his hair.
** All of "Dare to be Stupid" counts, really.
** "[[ICantHearYou I can't hear you!]] (Dare to be stupid!) Okay, I can hear you now..."
** The song is a style-parody of Devo. Mark Mothersbaugh once stated that he hated Weird Al ''for doing the song before he could''.
* "Girls Just Wanna Have Lunch", just from how [[StylisticSuck deliberately bad he made it.]]
* "Party in the CIA" is hilarious, as one fan put it "It's hauntingly accurate, I hope we don't have to kill him."
** ''"Better put your hands up and get in the van, Or else you'll get blown away!"''
** ''"We only torture the folks we don't like, You're probably gonna be OK!"''
** ''"Burn that microfilm, buddy, will you? [[IdTellYouButThenIdHaveToKillYou I'd tell you why, but then I'd have to kill you.]]"''
* The video for "Perform This Way". Weird Al's face superimposed over a woman's body, exhibiting outfits so outrageous that they manage to ''out-Gaga Music/LadyGaga.'' (with a few ''real'' Gaga outfits thrown in, such as the one made of raw meat - though good luck figuring out without doing the research which ones were the real thing) Highlights include a singing porcupine on his/her head, a Taj Mahal/Octopus combo, and a cameo by Music/{{Madonna}} impersonator Holly Beavon who appears during the line "I'm so completely original" and later throws in the "Express yourself" reference.
** For those wondering about the French he speaks "for no reason", it literally translates to, "Excuse me, who farted?"
** When doing live performances of this song, expect Al to be wearing something like an octopus suit with an ice cream cone for a hat, with the band's outfits being only slightly less bizarre.
* From ''Trapped In The Drive-Thru'':
--> "''Then we drive to the drive-thru''
--> ''Heading off to the drive-thru''
--> ''We're approaching the drive-thru''
--> ''Getting close to the drive-thru!''
--> ''Almost there at the drive-thru''
--> ''Now we're here at the drive thru''
--> ''Here in line at the drive-thru''
--> ''[[OverlyLongGag Did I mention the drive-thru?]]''
** 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.
** And of course, the ending - [[spoiler: they wo. We all feel just horrible about this. Well, I guess you'll have to listen really carefully and try to figure out the words yourself. Good luck."''
* [[AntiLoveSong "You Don't Love Me Anymore"]] is borderline disturbing... and totally hilarious.
-->I knew that we were having problems when\\
You put those piranhas in my bathtub again\\
You're still the light of my life\\
Oh darling, I´m beggin', won´t you put down that knife?
* Pretty much the entity of "A Complicated Song", but special mention goes to the final two choruses.
-->Tell me,
-->Why'd I have to go and get myself decapitated?
-->[[{{Understatement}} It really is a major inconvenience]]
-->Oh man, I really hate it
-->It's such a drag now
-->I can't eat, I can't breathe, I can't snore, I can't belch or yodel anymore,
-->Can't spit or blow my nose or even read ''Sports Illustrated''
* Al's unfailing cheerful delivery of [[LyricalDissonance all the terrible things predicted]] in "That's Your Horoscope for Today":
Your birthday party will be ruined once again by [[{{Gasshole}} your explosive flatulence]]\\
Your love life will run into trouble when your fiancé [[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice hurls a javelin through your chest]]\\
The position of Jupiter says that you should spend the rest of the week face down in the mud\\
Try not to shove a roll of duct tape up your nose while taking your driver's test\\
All your friends are laughing behind your back... '''[[DisproportionateRetribution KILL THEM.]]'''\\
Take down all those [[FanDisservice naked pictures of]] Creator/ErnestBorgnine you've got hanging in your den\\
The stars say that you're an exciting and wonderful person, [[YankTheDogsChain but you know they're lying]]\\
If I were you, I'd lock my doors and windows, and [[{{Hikkikomori}} never never never never ever leave my house again]]!
* "White & Nerdy"
** Al, dressed as a nerd, mowing the front lawn when he stops and waves enthusiastically at the gangsters (Series/KeyAndPeele) who frown in response. Al then walks up to them wanting to shake their hands, but they drive away as he gets near the car.
** Al showing off the rims on his car: they're stock rims on a Toyota Prius.
** Al [[TakeThat vandal]][[WikiVandal izing]] the Atlantic Records Wiki/{{Wikipedia}} page by writing "'''YOU SUCK!'''"
** [[Series/{{Pyramid}} Donny]] [[ Osmond]].
** "They see me roll on / My Segway" Followed by ThoseTwoGuys [[FlippingTheBird giving him the bird]].
** Al making out with a large roll of bubble wrap, hoping "no one sees me get freaky."
* It wasn't enough for Al to do pitch-perfect Music/TalkingHeads style parody in "Dog Eat Dog"... he dons a gigantic blazer a la David Byrne in "Stop Making Sense" to perform it.
* The [[ "Another Tattoo"]] video. Highlights include the tattoos of 4 of his ex-girlfriends (and Clay Aiken), zombie UsefulNotes/RonaldReagan, his grocery list, and the geisha tattoo that is actually a tentacle monster.
** And of course, [[Franchise/StarWars Boba Fett]] playing clarinet.
* "Stop Draggin' My Car Around", because only Weird Al can make a song about your car being impounded hilarious.
-->[[FelonyMisdemeanor But, man, that car of yours is so uncool]]\\
[[TotallyRadical Like wow]], [[RefugeInAudacity I'm sorry, but we towed it away!]]\\\
Look out the window, there's tow truck in the driveway\\
I grabbed the driver and I asked him why\\
He said, "I'm sorry kid, you're late with the payments\\
It's time to kiss your little car goodbye"\\\
[[WorryingForTheWrongReason Hey! Hey! I left a sandwich in the backseat!]]
* A clever transition in "Hot Rocks Polka", Al's polka tribute to Music/TheRollingStones:
-->So goodbye, Ruby Tuesday
-->Who could hang a name on you
-->When you change with every new day
-->Still... I'm gonna '''miss you'''
-->''(silly woo-woo version of the hook from "Miss You")''
* The entirety of [[ the song "Tacky" and the accompanying music video]], but special mention must go to the cameos by [[WesternAnimation/{{Archer}} Aisha]] [[Series/WhoseLineIsItAnyway Tyler]], Creator/MargaretCho, [[Series/ModernFamily Eric Stonestreet]], Creator/KristenSchaal, and Creator/JackBlack.
** Or "Wear my Ed Hardy shirt with ''fluorescent orange pants''! Got my new résumé, it's [[FauxHorrific printed in Comic Sans]]!"
** Or this [[RefugeInAudacity utterly audacious line]], especially when lip-synced by the [[HollywoodPudgy pleasantly plump]] Creator/MargaretCho in the music video.
--> I met some chick, ask her this and that
--> Like "Are you pregnant, girl, or just really fat?" ''[[BigWhat "WHAT?!"]]''
** The stuff involving practicing twerking moves at the D.M.V & taking off one's shirt (at ''least'') at the bank.
*** Not helped by the twerking in the video being done by ''Jack Black.'' Wearing a sequined fanny pack.
** "I would live-tweet a funeral, take selfies with the deceased..." followed by, "...If I'm bit by a zombie, I'm probably not telling you...if you're okay with that then you're probably tacky, too!" I guess the subject of the funeral got up and bit him.
* "Scream & Shout" has a portion in the polka medley "That's What I Call Polka!", in which the lyrics are accompanied by realistic screaming in the background (provided by [[TheCameo Al's wife]]), and the line "let it out" is accompanied by [[ToiletHumor a fart noise]].
** "Best Song Ever" is changed slightly.
--->I think it went *guh guh guh*
--->I think it went *guh guh guh*
--->I think it went [[Music/{{Psy}} e-e-e-e-e-e-eeeey, sexy lady]]
* Weird Al's take on ''Gangnam Style'' with "HEEEEEYYYY SEXY LAAAADDDY" a la Creator/JerryLewis.
* The song "Foil" starts out as a seemingly normal song about food, par for the course for Al...[[spoiler: and then veers off halfway through into [[UsefulNotes/ConspiracyTheories conspiracy theories]], [[OneWorldOrder New World Order]], [[AlienAbduction alien abduction]], and [[TheIlluminati Illuminati]], and how a foil hat will protect you.]] It's doubly funny because Weird Al is so well known for songs about food that you'd never see it coming.
** [[spoiler: And the actual Illuminati was flattered enough [[ to send Al a gift basket.]]]]
* This awesome line in the Robin Thicke parody "Word Crimes": ''"You should neeeeverrrrrr... write words using numbers! Unless you're seven! [[spoiler: Or [[TakeThat your name is]] Music/{{Prince}}!]]"''
** Even better because not only has Prince consistently denied Al the right to parody his songs, but the number 7 is an arc number for him. Weird Al ribbed him in more ways than one.
-->''And I thought that you’d gotten it through your skull / ‘Bout what’s figurative and what’s literal / Oh, but just now you said / You “literally couldn’t get out of bed” / That really makes me want to literally / Smack a crowbar upside your stupid head!''
-->"Your prose is dopey / think you should only / write in emoji / Oh you're a lost cause!"
** The little details are just as hilarious, like how when the video gets to 'you're a lost cause', the screen changes to look like an ad for the show ''Lost'', and in the corner, where the ABC logo goes, it says 'learn your abc's, doofus'. In addition, when Clippy shows up, the 'dismiss' button says 'go away forever', something a lot of users probably agree with.
** The line "Irony is not coincidence" is accompanied by a picture of [[Music/AlanisMorissette a bride and groom getting rained on]].
* "Mission Statement" takes a load of corporate buzzwords and makes them into a Music/CrosbyStillsNashAndYoung-styled song.
* "Jackson Park Express" is a lengthy story about a out-of-control FacialDialogue conversation, but amid the general escalation and silliness, one line stands out.
-->Then I glanced down at her shirt for a second
-->In a way that clearly implied "[[spoiler:[[MaleGaze I like your boobs]]]]"
** Another from the same song (and potentially useful as a real pick-up line): "You are my answer to everything, which is why I'll probably do very poorly on the written part of my driver's test."
** And the implication that most of what's said is clearly just in the delusional mind of the protagonist while the woman of his affection is wondering why this weirdo is gawking at her.
* The entirety of "My Own Eyes". BrainBleach at its funniest and most disturbing.
** Especially the "diabetic chicks" who snort ''Pixy Stix'' while belching ''Stairway To Heaven'', the drag queens cracker nose-stuffing contest & the Hara Kiri Guinea pig-turned-hackey sack.
* "Angry White Boy Polka":
-->''(In an incredibly cheerful voice)'' "I cry, when angels deserve to die, die, die, d-d-die-die-die-die-die. HEY!"
* "Good Old Days" has this [[CrossesTheLineTwice disturbing, yet hilarious]] verse about a grocery store owner:
-->Always treated me nice, gave me kindly advice\\
I don't know why I [[MoodWhiplash set fire to his place]]\\
Oh, I'll never forget the day I [[RefugeInAudacity bashed in his head]]\\
Well, you should've seen [[OhCrap the look on his face]]
* "Jerry Springer" has this bit of dialouge:
-->Man: Baby, I've been sleepin' with your sister.
-->Woman: Oh? well, which one?
-->Man: All of them...
-->Woman: Oh! Well, I've been sleepin' with your best friend Jake!
-->Man: Yeah? Well, me too!
-->Woman: Oh!
-->Man: And I've been sleepin' with your dog Woofie!
-->Woman: Woofie, you b(BLEEP)tch!
-->Woman: Well, I'm also sleeping with your pet goat!
-->Man: That goat doesn't love you!
* "Hardware Store"'s infamous MotorMouth list includes many things one would expect to find at a typical hardware store...with [[BreadEggsMilkSquick "automatic circumcisers"]] slipped into the middle of it.
* The fact that Weird Al managed to turn Charles Nelson Reilly, a goofy CampGay comedian famous for being on ''Show/MatchGame'', into a MemeticBadass who would put ChuckNorrisFacts to shame.

!![[ManipulativeEditing Fake Interviews]]
* "[[ We all got cellphones]], [[ so come on let's get real]]..."
* The whole of the [[ Avril Lavigne]] one, helped by Avril being ''clearly'' batshit insane.
-->'''Avril''': (scared, paranoid) Oh my god, cameras, oh my god!
-->'''Weird Al''': No, no, Avril! Cameras are your friends! Cameras are here to help you! Cameras ''gooood''...
-->'''Avril''': (happy) ''Cameras!''
** Also from the Avril interview:
--->'''Weird Al''': Okay, now do your impression of one of those automatic lawn sprinkler things.
--->'''Avril''': (nodding while moving her head around the room): Okay, 'sup, 'sup, 'sup, 'sup...
** Behold: Avril's favorite punk song:
--->'''Avril''': The Y... [=MCA=] song.
--->'''Weird Al''': Ah, yes, the Music/VillagePeople, [[SarcasmMode how very... punk...]]
* [[ The Eminem interview]]. The "you know what I'm saying" bit, Eminem talking about [[HoYay coming]] [[ManipulativeEditing out]], his triple negatives and the [[PrecisionFStrike f^))&^king]] trees!
* Asking Music/OzzyOsbourne if he's ever seen ''Film/ErnestGoesToCamp'' -- and when Ozzy answers no, Al offering to have it projected on his own butt.
* Requesting Music/BruceSpringsteen to say something completely incoherent, and Bruce obliges.
* The [[ Kevin Federline]] interview. All of it. Al seems to express a genuine [[TakeThat disdain]] for the man, unlike his other interviews.
!!''Behind the Music''
* The opening to his episode:
-->"I've never [[FleetwoodMac slept with a band member]]. I've never [[Creator/LeifGarrett crippled a band member]]. I've never stayed in my boat for three days on a heroin binge. I've never had to deal with [[Music/MeatLoaf weight problems]]. I've never [[Series/GeneSimmonsFamilyJewels slept with so many women I lost count]]. I never [[Music/MilliVanilli lip sync]] to my songs, except in music videos. I never was an alcoholic, I never [[Music/SnoopDogg was a poster child for marijuana smoking]], and I never [[Music/JerryLeeLewis married my 13 year old cousin]], SO WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!"
* "Coming up: Weird Al copes with failure."
-->'''Al:''' ''(sobbing)'' And then my seventh album only went gold instead of platinum! I had to get the ''medium''-sized Jacuzzi! ''(suddenly calm again)'' Will that work for you?
* Creator/EmoPhillips shows off one of his royalty checks for appearing in ''Film/{{UHF}}''. For thirty cents. "It's the gift that keeps on giving."
** Speaking of, behold: [[NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer His first line]]:
-->'''Emo''': (with the caption "Emo Philips: [[{{Irony}} Friend]]" on screen) You know how you pee in the toilet and it sounds like [[ShockingSwerve someone commanding you to kill Weird Al Yankovic]]?

!!Live Shows
* In live performances, each member of the band gets a chance to show off their skills at one point, [[NobodyLovesTheBassist except bassist Steve Jay, who will just play one note.]]
** Guitarist Jim West will also sometimes screw up the last note playing something like "Mary Had a Little Lamb", and drummer Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz's "drum solo" will usually consist of him hitting his snare drum once.
** Keyboardist Ruben Valtierra, being the group's ButtMonkey, doesn't really get a chance to show off his keyboard skills, but that doesn't stop him from trying. Usually he'll play a rather grandiose piano solo, which is what he does during Al's lead-in story before the song "One More Minute" in ''"Weird Al" Yankovic Live!''. Al stops and turns to Ruben, who sees him and ceases his piano playing, then Al goes back to his story... and Ruben busts out a catchy Mexican salsa piano beat, interrupting Al's story again. To finally get Ruben to stop, [[DisproportionateRetribution Al eventually grabs a gun from the stage and shoots him.]]
* During the "Hooooo!" instrumental break in "Fat", SantaClaus suddenly bounds onto the stage shouting "Ho-ho-ho!" and Al just as promptly beats him up.
** During the ''Straight Outta Lynwood'' tour, Santa Claus was replaced by [[DisguisedInDrag a man dressed as a prostitute.]] Al simply pointed at him and shouted "[[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Ho!]]"
* Anytime they play the "Jurassic Park" video during his concerts, whenever they show the scene where Barney the Dinosaur gets his head bitten off by a dinosaur, expect the audience to cheer in delight.
* Before the '''huge''' fan-favorite "Albuquerque" was actually added to the set list, Al would often tease the audience with references to the song and hints that his band would play it. During one such performance:
-->'''Al:''' So... anyone here tonight from Albuquerque? ''[audience cheers]'' Well, we've got just the song for you! ''[audience cheers even louder]'' [[BaitAndSwitch It's called "One More Minute"!]]
* Wanna B Ur Lovr. Just... yeah.

* Weird Al in Music/AlanisMorissette's [[ "Ironic" video.]]
* 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 [[ then in 2013]], he recounted a story from behind-the-scenes regarding fellow contestant Music/JamesBrown...
** Al was a contestant on ''[[Series/{{Jeopardy}} Rock and Roll Jeopardy!]]'' in 2001. [[SelfFulfillingProphecy Guess]] [[ForegoneConclusion what]] [[LifeImitatesArt happened?]]
* One night in the mid-'80s, Al repeatedly called up his drummer Jon "Bermuda" Schwartz and left one bizarre, rambling message after another on his answering machine. 25 years later, the tape containing the messages was uploaded to YouTube. [[ Hear it in all of its bizarre, random glory]].
** HilariousInHindsight: He pitches two song ideas to Jon which are parodies of songs he's parody properly on ''Dare To Be Stupid'': "I Want A New Dog/Goat" and "Girls Just Want To Eat Cheese."
** "WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?? ''WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?!?'' '''''[[ItMakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext LET'S EAT!!!!!!]]'''''
** "That's not Literature/{{Lassie}}... it's some ''[[PrecisionFStrike bitch]]'' that's not Lassie!"
** Al playing "State Of Shock," "Another One Bites The Dust" and "Smoke On The Water" on the phone keypad!
* His [[ 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.
* His grizzled coach character in [[ "Every Sports Press Conference Ever"]]
