(Newser) – Ready or not, Weird Al is back. The king of geeky parody music has released a new single making fun of Craigslist, CNET reports. There’s no reference to, say, prostitution ads—just Yankovic’s goofy riff on the site’s strange brand of commerce. It’s also a musical parody, this time lampooning the style of the Doors, with former Doors keyboardist Ray Manzarek making a guest appearance.

Count Craigslist’s founder among the song’s fans: “The thing’s pretty funny!” Craig Newmark gushes.
