Attention Weird Al Fans...

If, like me, you're enough out of touch to not know just what Weird Al was parodying with "White and Nerdy," or you're just a fan of Al, you want to check out the episode of All Songs Considered that features him. (It's Chamillionaire's "Ridin'," with the repeated "ridin' dirty" in the chorus no doubt the inspiration for "white and nerdy.")

Just to show Weird Al's excellent taste in music, we get to hear some of the songs that inspired him, notably Tom Lehrer and the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band. Check it out.
