Two immense stars from the world of music, “Weird Al” Yankovic & Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber are on today’s Comedy Bean Bag! After chatting with Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber about English accents, the Little Prince, and nautical bed bugs, the Vicar of Yanks himself joins in on the conversation. There will be talk of drugs, what we shouldn’t expect from the next “Weird Al” album, and an intense game of Would You Rather? Homonyms!

Ooo, I hope Scott juxtaposes a filthy joke at the level of seeing Kelly Clarkson 'work a big, fat turd' to the delightfully clean Weird Al.

An assuredly delightful episode, I can't help but feel this will be.
Blame the stupid mime.

I'm outraged. This was Oscar's night to shine and there was nary a mention of the ceremony.

Oh poor ALW. You seem to be ignorant of the fact that American pronunciation is far older than your silly modern British pronunciation. You fools became non-rhotic and pulled the New Englanders with you, but the rest of us were happy to keep our final 'r's.
I suggest you go to the near mansion-less Appalachia to hear how your beloved Bard spoke.
Never forget... that the Jews caused 9/11.

Thank the Lord ALW for making a wretched Monday morning a delightful one.

During the Words with Friends discussion a little bit of Scott's Ray Romano impression slipped out, and I briefly got VERY excited

"What color are the pants?"
"Mustard yellow"

And all this time mustard and pants have been the EXACT SAME THING. I feel cheated in some way.

p.s. please bring back jukebox jury.

Much as I enjoyed all the modern references in the plugs section, "Convoy" is by CW McCall, not BJ McCall. I don't even know why I bothered typing this and yet here it is.

What is it about the ALW/Weird Al combination that's so irresistible? Together, they can do no wrong.

I can barely handle how awesome this is. I want Lord A.L. Webber to have his own show. The M*A*S*H musical song = hilarious. Tears... just tears of joy.

Just classic. Everything everyone said was hilarious. Some of the best chemistry I've heard on a podcast.

I think this could be a pretty fun bumper sticker.

I'm really impressed that Scott was able to book the Vicars of Christ and Yanks in consecutive weeks.

Like every other PFT appearance, this was ridiculously fun. I could listen to Scott and ALW riff back and forth 24 hours a day and never get tired of it.
