To Paraphrase Casey Kasem: It's an Early Clue to the New Direction and Who Gives a S**t

From 1983, please enjoy (hasn't really been funny since "Another One Rides the Bus") musical parodist "Weird" Al Yankovic and his version of you-know-who's "Beat It."

"Eat It."

Jeebus, what a masterstroke. What a fricking coup. Seriously -- compared to this, S. J. Perelman's Farewell, My Lovely Appetizer is a back issue of CRACKED. Compared to this, Jane Austen's Northranger Abbey is...well, you get the idea.

In any case, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
