Weird Al Asks That You Please Not Pickaxe His Hollywood Star

While accepting his Hollywood star on Monday, “Weird Al” Yankovic make just one request—that people not take a pickaxe to it.

"I know it’s all the rage these days," he joked.

The honor was a long-time coming for the multiple Grammy-winning songwriter, who rose to prominence in the 1980s with parody singles like the Michael Jackson-inspired 'Eat it.'

But rather than lay another one of his delicious food-based puns on the audience, the parody king took a more political approach for his wise cracks during his acceptance speech.

"I kind of feel like this is maybe my one real shot at immortality because I know that now my name is going to basically be here until the end of civilization, which, let’s face it, is probably like three or four months away."

The jokes were clearly jabs at the current administration, as well as a commentary on the recent vandalism of Donald Trump’s own star. Yankovic, however, did offer one exception for defacing his star.

"Unless at some point in the future, I do something unfathomably monstrous and evil in which case, sure, fine, okay, go ahead. But anything short of that, please limit yourself to spitting and urinating, OK?"

Will do, Al.

Watch the full speech below.


Today is Martin Luther King Day, a holiday to celebrate one of the great Civil Rights leaders in U.S. history. And while America has made progress on many of the issues King fought for, there are other issues that still need to be addressed.
