It was the rumor that rocked the 1990s: was Alanis Morissette's angry, fellatio-referencing "You Oughta Know" actually about sweet ol' Uncle Joey from Full House? It was a story that seemed just bizarre enough to be plausible. After all, Joey-essayer Dave Coulier loved ice hockey, and Morissette was Canadian! Now, prompted by the impending Comedy Central roast of Bob Saget, Coulier had a sit-down with the Calgary News where he revealed that yes, every time Alanis scratches her nails down someone else's back, he feels it:
Coulier was driving when he first heard it. "I said, 'Wow, this girl is angry.' And then I said, 'Oh man, I think it's Alanis.' . . . I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, 'I think I have really hurt this person.'"
"I tried to contact her and I finally got a hold of her. And at the same time, the press was calling and saying, 'You want to comment on this song?' I called her and I said, 'Hi. Uh, what do you want me to say?' And she said, 'You can say whatever you want.'"Coulier apologized and then, at a loss for words, made a series of hilarious duck noises, finally asking Morissette, "Hey Alanis — do you think Paul from The Wonder Years was actually Marilyn Manson?
