Axeole, among other things, is noted for his expansive physique. Being the only one in my gang with generous dimensions in college, he was (and still is, in some circles) the butt end of all the fat boy jokes.

Just read this on sonymusic.com

Wierd Al is releasing a new album. Titled "Axeole Blues", it is all set

I'm A Fatta Than Yua (sung to the tune of "In A Gadda Da Vida" by Iron
Butterfly)
Fat (Remix of old Wierd Al hit, spoof of MJ's "Bad")
Humongous Me (sung to the tune of Van Halen's "Humans Being")

and the masterpiece

Bohemian Obesity (sung to Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody")

Go Axe, Go.
