"I Was Only Kidding" (the ultimate break-up song) takes a soft love ballad in the beginning, saying sweet loving things to a girl, then goes into a raucous barrage, including animal sounds that tells her he was only kidding. Al says the line "I really love you... NOT!" is specifically a reference to the movie Wayne's World. As a 90's kids I remember the one year that this was a common burn for the masses. Al ended up recording one too many original songs for Off the Deep End, and chose to include this one over "Waffle King" (which was later included on Alapalooza) in case the "NOT!" joke became too dated. According to Al himself: I’m not sure how many people know who Tonio K. is, but he’s one of my favorite artists and I’ve actually done two style parodies of him (“Happy Birthday” and “I Was Only Kidding”).

I hear ya... but I was faced with this dilemma when choosing which package of the Squeeze Box I should get... There was a package that said you can get the first pressing of only ONE album... but how do you choose?  It's like choosing which child you love the most... ain't gonna happen!
