Well, my review started this thread, so I'll just add my 5 out of 5 star rating.

When I was little this was one of my favorite songs of his, but I haven't had the desire to listen to it in many many years. (I'm sure I have, listening to stuff on random, but I haven't been like, "Oh, I gotta hear ATS!")

That's how I feel about this song too, though it was never one of my favorites to begin with (probably my least favorite song included on either "Greatest Hits" or "Greatest Hits Volume 2"). While I've always felt the original song was kind of boring (not Al's fault, I know), there aren't that many good lines in this one, though I do like "I can't deny they've got appeal" and "I've often seen them whipped but they just can't be beat."

I find the melody catchy and potatoes comprise big part of my diet (a national cuisine thing), so I like the song :)

I was hoping maybe they would stick this back in the medley this year and we could finally hear something from Polka Party again, but it would have worked even better on the Alpocalypse Tour with the other food parodies, god that medley was prime.

Too bad you don't have more appreciation for Al's original cuts. Some people are blind to others creative genius, or are only able to understand a small part of it, kind of a shame. Least you like some of this stuff I guess.
