Whether it's your favorite video game or your brand new DVD,
there's bound to be some kind of "hidden feature" included.
But, what about Al's stuff? In case you didn't know, some of

you think "Bob" was just a crazy song with weird
lyrics? Well it is, but each and every line in the song
is also a "palindrome". The dictionary defines
a palindrome as "a word, phrase, verse, or sentence
that reads the same backward or forward." That's
right, each line in "Bob" is read the same forward

I haven't tried this out yet. If anyone else has, please
let me know. Also, to do this, you MUST have a
copy of Running With Scissors, a Sony PlayStation and
a copy of Monster Rancher 2.)

with an unknown type and you need to be class E or D.
the Off The Deep End CD, play the last track (You Don't
Love Me Anymore). Once it's done, just let it play. After
quite a while (about 10 minutes or so), you'll be "treated"
to a loud burst a guitar feedback, backwards drumming,
and Al screaming at the top of his lungs. It only lasts
for about 7 seconds and it's called "Bite Me".
most of Al's vinyl releases, you can find different inscriptions
on the record Al-bums themselves. For example, on the
Even Worse Al-bum, the number "100,000,000" is inscribed
on one side. Also, on the Dare To Be Stupid Al-bum, you
will find an inscription that reads "MORE SONGS ABOUT
TELEVISION AND FOOD". There are more inscriptions on Al's
other vinyl releases, so go check 'em out!
--- Backward Messages
the song Nature Trail To Hell on the Al-bum In
3D there is a backwards message. Towards the end of
the song, you'll hear Al say something backwards. What
he really says is "Satan Eats Cheese Whiz".
you ever wonder what Al is saying at the end of the song
I Remember Larry on Bad Hair Day? Well, it's backwards
and he's saying "Wow, you must have an awful lot of free
time on your hands!".
is an interesting set of lyrics in "Slime Creatures From
Outer Space" from the Dare To Be Stupid Al-bum.
After Al says, "They're really getting on my nerves" and
the alien vocals go "Slime Creatures" , turn up the volume
to hear Al exclaim, "Who ya gonna call?". Then the vocals
go, "Slime Creatures!". You HAVE to turn up the volume
or you don't hear anything.
