I'm sorry if I seemed glib, I assure you I hold the accordian in the highest

To clear the air quickly, Frankie Yankovic is *NOT* related to Weird Al
Yankovic. He may very well still be the king of Cleveland, but it's awful
hard to hear the low notes under 6 feet of dirt and from inside a coffin.
However, Weird Al is a huge fan of Frankie (and a damn fine accordianist at

He (Al) even appeared on one of Frankie's albums, "Frankie Yankovic &
Friends - Songs Of The Polka King". They perform "Who Stole The Keeshka"

So put that in your Texas longhorn and smoke it, Mr. Smarty-Pants.
