Thanks to Weird Al, Charles Nelson Reilly finally gets the badass recognition he deserves

Thanks to Bill for sending me the link to JibJab’s video for Weird Al’s new song, CNR, available now on iTunes. I still watch old reruns of Match Game on the Game Show Network, and Charles Nelson Reilly was a comic genius. RIP. Watch out Chuck Norris, there’s a new badass hitting the interwebz.

  1. Lyrics for those interested:

    Charles Nelson Reilly was a mighty man
    The kind of man you’d never disrespect
    He stood 8 foot tall, wore glasses
    And he had a third nipple on the back of his neck
    He ate his own weight in coal
    And excreted diamonds every day
    He could throw you down a flight of stairs
    But you still would love him anyway
    Yeah, you know you’d love him anyway

    Charles Nelson Reilly won the Tour de France
    With two flat tires and a missin’ chain
    He trained a rattlesnake to do his laundry
    I’m tellin’ you the man was insane
    He could rip out your beatin’ heart
    And show it to you right before you died
    Every day he’d make the host of Match Game
    Give him a piggyback ride
    Yeah, a two-hour piggyback ride
    Giddyup, Gene!

    Ninja warrior, master of disguise
    He could melt your brain with his laser beam eyes
    Oh yeah
    Oh yeah
    He had his very own line at the DMV
    He made sweet, sweet love to a manatee
    Oh yeah
    Oh yeah, that was somethin’ to see, I tell ya

    Charles Nelson Reilly figured out cold fusion
    But he never ever told a soul
    I’ve seen the man unhinge his jaw
    And swallow a Volkswagen whole
    He’d bash your face in with a shovel
    If you didn’t treat him like a star
    ‘Cause you can spit in the wind or tug on Superman’s cape
    But Lord knows you just don’t mess around with CNR
    No no no
    Talkin’ bout CNR
    Ohh
