1. Weird Al's New Album Skyrockets To #1, As Entire World Simultaneously Forgets He's A Huge Dork

Bouyed in part by an eight-day, eight-video roll-out promo stunt, Weird Al Yankovic's new album Mandatory Fun seems on track to debut at No. 1 on Billboard's 200 Chart, a first for the accordion-playing parodist who first received exposure through Dr. Demento's absurdist radio program in the mid-70s. This means that Weird Al's novelty songs are now more popular and cooler than the pop hits they're making fun of.
