"Weird Al" or smart Al?

"Weird Al" Yankovic - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Yankovic began kindergarten a year earlier than most children, and he skipped the second grade. 'My classmates seemed to think I was some kind of rocket scientist so I was labeled a nerd early on,' he recalls.[10] As his unusual schooling left him two years younger than most of his classmates, Yankovic was not interested in sports or social events at school. He was a straight-A student throughout high school, which earned him the honor of becoming valedictorian of his senior class.[10] Yankovic was active in his school's extracurricular programs, including the National Forensic League, a play based upon Rebel Without a Cause, the yearbook (for which he wrote most of the captions), and the Volcano Worshippers club, 'which did absolutely nothing. We started the club just to get an extra picture of ourselves in the yearbook.'[10]

Yankovic went on to California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo where he earned a degree in architecture.[9"
