If Weird Al Were A Sandwich, He'd Be Delicious (and Vegan)

With the release of his fourteenth full-length album, “Mandatory Fun,” Weird Al Yankovic is bringing puns back to the mainstream yet again. His spoofy album, which takes on Iggy Izalea, Pharrell Williams, and others, will be Yankovic’s last full-length album, as he will be switching gears to online releases. With a career that kicked off 35 years ago with his first parody song release, the AV Club sat down with Yankovic to ask the deep, probing questions. Our favorite query was, “If a deli named a sandwich after you, what would be on it?”

Yankovic’s mouthwatering response:

I’d say a fire-roasted eggplant, some roasted red peppers, diced heirloom tomatoes, some thin-sliced red onions—maybe double up on the onions and have some caramelized onions on top of the sliced onions. A little basil, some arugula, some chopped and marinated mushrooms, maybe a slice of fresh avocado, some alfalfa sprouts, a dose of hummus, a drizzle of pomegranate molasses and put it on a warm toasted French roll lovingly sprinkled with some truffle oil.”

Wow! That’s a sophisticated sandwich from one of the silliest people in pop culture!

When the AV Club verified that Yankovic is vegan, he replied, “Yeah, I’m vegan. I sometimes slip and do some dairy, but I typically stay vegan.”

We love ya vegan, Weird Al. Please churn out some fun plant-based polka jams for us soon!
