Default Parents of "Weird Al" Yankovic found dead

Yeah, I know this is only Transformers news in the remote sense (because Weird Al contributed a song to TF:TM), but bear with me...

Public safety announcement: don't "dare to be stupid" —if you have anything such as an open fire or gas heater, invest in carbon monoxide detecting strips. Carbon monoxide is poisonous and you can't smell, taste or see it.

It's as likely to kill over a period of time (which may be misconstrued as lethargy or a virus) as in the short term. Take precautions.

This is definitely sad news. I've been a Weird Al fan for as long as I can remember, and in his tv special "There's No Going Home" he went back to his parent's house. Despite being old, they were hilarious as they played along with Al's goofiness.

I can't believe he managed to perform on Saturday. That's some serious fan dedication.

Despite the sad news, that's still funny. I have a carbom monoxide detector in my house, and though it's never gone off, I feel better knowing it's there.

I wouldn't says it that funny. It would say that it is kind of ironic and a play on words IMO. My prayers go out to him as he goes through this troubled time.

That's sad, his parents really loved him, and they seemed like really nice people. R.I.P.

Surely this belongs in the Weird AL topic that is right below this topic?
