Yesterday was yearbook day at my school. There's one kid in my grade who called another kid a waffle once in class. (This lead to other kids calling him a waffle in class off and on throughout the year.) Anyways, I signed his yearbook (and another friend of mine who's also in that class) with "Believe in the power of the waffle."
Is it about my cube?

We're now using "Waffle King-ish" as an adjective to describe certain people's behavior - i.e., "Wow, that was very Waffle Kingish of him."

My husband has a guy who works for him who actually says (frequently) "Don't you know who I am?" (seriously). We just call him the Waffle King. Someday he's gonna get a waffle iron in the face...

Did Al ever do a video for this song? I don't know if I have a stupendously exquisite imagination or actually saw him on video... Every time I hear this song I "see" him performing it. If not, then I invite you all to a viewing - in my head.

You have a stupendously exquisite imagination. Please post the inside of your head on YouTube as soon as possible. :P
"Weird Al" has a charisma that's all his own. The awkward, the misshapen, the socially inept flock to his banner.

I always enjoyed Waffle King just as much as I've enjoyed waffles. I love the subtle social commentary of how people tend to get a swelled head over the stupidest things and.....Aww, who am I kidding? I just love the music!
I bought some batteries but they weren't included, so I bought them again.

Generally, I like absurd stuff. It makes for fun stuff. But for some reason this song just isn't doing it for me. Catchy, but just eh. I do have to re-listen though, cause I haven't heard the album in a while. Not my least favorite song by him though.

I consider this one of Al's 'lower profile' songs but as far as I go, it's up there. I never skip it when it comes on and I always pause what I'm doing to make sure I sing along. Definitely some good lines in there.

:peace:
