  • The lyric "I was skinny at first, then I got thick, and then back to being skinny again" may reference a 1972 Monty Python's Flying Circus sketch, "Anne Elk's Theory on Brontosauruses," in which the title theory states, "All brontosauruses are thin at one end, much, much thicker in the middle, and then thin again at the far end."
