You may already know this, but Al originally wrote the song to annoy his listeners for 12 minutes, and thought it would be one of the least popular tracks. However, it ended up being one of his biggest hits ever, and is often played as the ending/encore to his concerts. This writer has seen Al live twice, and loved the tweaks he made when performing it live, like listing more cutesy names Zelda calls him, more "fight moves" with the snorkel-stealer, and more donut types. According to Wikipedia, there are 8 more donut types Al's been known to sing that are all "berry" types. Name any 4 of those 8.
