"Do Geese See God?"

While the web is currently clamoring for "Weird Al" Yankovic's "White and Nerdy" video (as well they should be), his new album has another song that even further establishes his brilliance.

He decided that he would tackle Bob Dylan on this album by doing a parody of "Subterranean Homesick Blues". And when he approached this task, he made a decision: Since Bob Dylan's lyrics don't make any sense anyway (and thus are hard to do a straightforward parody of), he decided to form the lyrics completely out of Palindromes. The result must be heard to be believed. Go listen and watch "Bob" here.

Thanks to Slate for cluing me in to this song as well as providing a great essay about Yankovic's career.
