We gave it an A-

Since they’re forbidden to listen to CDs, it’s pretty safe for Weird Al Yankovic to rank on the Amish in ”Amish Paradise”. Still, his parody of ”Gangsta’s Paradise” contains a buggyful of yuks, even when stripped of its hilarious video. With lines like ”But if I finish all of my chores and you finish thine/Then tonight we’re gonna party like it’s 1699,” this is one put-on that’s anything but plain.
