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.


President Trump's 2020 budget request includes a loophole that would let Washington, DC finally open up dispensaries for recreational cannabis. Although DC voters passed a ballot initiative to legalize recreational cannabis back in 2014, Congress has used its power over the nation's capital to prevent it from selling cannabis for recreational use. Right now, local dispensaries can only sell medical marijuana to registered patients thanks to Congress, which controls spending in the District of Columbia.
