    "Weird Al" Yankovic sat down with Larry King to reveal his new album Mandatory Fun is likely his last.

    "It's probably the last album for me. From now on, I am going to be releasing singles...I think that's the way for me to be timely," Al said.

    What else is next for "WAY?"

    "I've gotten some offers to do some writing for some possible Broadway musicals," the master parodist said. "There's different things I can do with my kind of sensibility and do the same type of comedy but branch out."

    Oh yes!

    He also revealed how he chooses which hits to parody, saying, "It's kind of on a whim. I look for songs who have a unique musical or lyrical hook, something that really jumps out at you when you hear it on the radio and it really boils down to whether or not I can come up with a clever enough idea for it."
