Everything You Know Is Wrong
Here's my second installment of my Weird Al MOCsongs. "Everything You Know Is Wrong" is my favorite of Weird Al's song.
About this creation
Yes, it's a new Weird Al song put to Lego by Wes. I'm not sure why I have to turn all my favorite songs into MOCs, but apparently I do. Here we go:




I was driving on the freeway in the fast lane





With a rabid wolverine in my underwear





When suddenly a guy behind me in the back seat
Popped right up and cupped his hands across my eyes





I guessed, "Is it Uncle Frank or Cousin Louie?"
"Is it Bob or Joe or Walter?"
"Could it be Bill or Jim or Ed or Bernie or Steve?"





I probably would have kept on guessing
But about that time we crashed into the truck





And as I'm laying bleeding there on the asphalt





Finally I recognize the face of my hibachi dealer
Who takes off his prosthetic lips and tells me:





"Everything you know is wrong
Black is white, up is down and short is long
And everything you thought was just so
Important doesn't matter

Everything you know is wrong
Just forget the words and sing along
All you need to understand is
Everything you know is wrong"





I was walkin' to the kitchen for some Golden Grahams





When I accidentally stepped into an alternate dimension





And soon I was abducted by some aliens from space
Who kinda looked like Jamie Farr

They sucked out my internal organs
And they took some polaroids
And said I was a darn good sport





And as a way of saying thank you
They offered to transport me back to
Any point in history that I would care to go





And so I had them send me back to last Thursday night
So I could pay my phone bill on time
Just then the floating disembodied head of
Colonel Sanders started yelling





"Everything you know is wrong
Black is white, up is down and short is long
And everything you thought was just so
Important doesn't matter

Everything you know is wrong
Just forget the words and sing along
All you need to understand is
Everything you know is wrong"





I was just about to mail a letter





to my evil twin





When I got a nasty papercut





And, well, to make a long story short
It got infected and I died





So now I'm up in heaven with St. Peter
By the pearly gates
And it's obvious he doesn't like
The Nehru jacket that I'm wearing
He tells me that they've got a dress code





Well, he lets me into heaven anyway
But I get the room next to the noisy ice machine
For all eternity





And every day he runs by screaming:





"Everything you know is wrong
Black is white, up is down and short is long
And everything you used to think was so important
Doesn't really matter anymore
Because the simple fact remains that

Everything you know is wrong
Just forget the words and sing along
All you need to understand is
Everything you know is wrong
Everything you know is wrong"

This was always one of my favorite Weird Al songs, if not my all-time favorite. I love the songs that tell stories. Someday, if I'm really brave, I will attempt "Albequerque." That will be the day.

To the observant: Can you find the scene with the missing flat 1x2 gray tile? A comment to the first to find it.

I would love to add a minifig Colonel Sanders head. Any ideas?

Thanks once more to Nichole for taking the pictures. This time, she was outside in the blistering heat, fending off flies, ants, and other biting insects, while two kids clung to her waist. She did all this with a smile, never once complaining about my obsession. I am actually serious about the heat and the smile. She really does a great job supporting me. Thanks, sweetie.

Quoting Mister Bones The only place that looks like it is missing the piece is the kitchen scenes, to the right of the stove dials. Cheers.
Mister Bones is the winner! I should be by on Monday for the promised comment. (Wow - this was so long ago I had to go find it myself!)

Man, Bones, how did you beat me to it? Hahaha, hard to believe this has been up this long and nobody found it. That, or we're the only ones with the time and lack of life to look. Great stuff, Wes. My favs were his open chest on the operating table and the stacked words, but everything was well done. 'I gotta boogie on my finger and I can't shake it off!'~H

Actually, I think that the missing 1x2 grey tile is the missing right-side mirror on the truck after the crash. EDIT: Oh, wait, I'm probably wrong, after all; the song says so.
