Today, Weird Al Yankovic’s song “Skipper Dan” was released. It’s a tribute to Disneyland’s Jungle Cruise, and though we appreciate the thought, the song is marred by several inaccuracies. Namely:
- The Jungle Cruise isn’t a ride — it’s an attraction.
- The Jungle Cruise’s jokes aren’t “lame,” they’re “classic”.
- He horribly, horribly mangles the classic “back side of water” joke.
What a tragic disappointment. We suggest that you go to iTunes immediately, buy a couple copies of the song, and lodge your complaints.
