Cake's, "Comfort Eagle"
The Funny Lyrics:
Doesn't matter if you're skinny,
Doesn't matter if you're fat
You can dress up like a sultan in your Onion Head Hat
Why They're funny:
I may be missing something here, but 'Onion Head Hat'? Every time I listen to this song, I get this vision of a fat guy with a giant, hollowed-out onion on his head, dancing around. It is rather scary...

Cake's, "Short Skirt, Long Jacket"
The Funny Lyrics:
I want a girl with uninterrupted prosperity (uninterrupted)
Who uses a machete to cut through red tape
Why They're funny:
That's what I'm looking for in a woman, too. Not!

Cake's, "The Distance"
The Funny Lyrics:
The sun has gone down, and the moon has come up
and long ago somebody left with the cup,
but he's driving, and striving, and hugging the turns
and thinking of someone for whom he still burns...
Why They're funny:
The whole song is about a guy who's lost a race (and is, in fact, in dead-last position), but he still wants to actually cross the finish line. also, a couple of lyrics just before the ones above says, "the fans get up and they get out of town/the arena is empty, except for one man..." uhh, if everyone else has left, why don't you? it's just the image of some guy still racing even when the winners have been declared and everyone's left.
