My Life’s Quirks – Re-Discovering Weird Al Yankovic
Let me tell you a little story…
I was perusing Facebook a couple of weeks ago and noticed that Darynda Jones shared a new video by none other than Weird Al Yankovic. I used to find him quite funny. Since I did, and also since Darynda is the one who shared, and I typically enjoy what she has to say on Facebook, I clicked to listen.
The video she shared was Word Crimes, a spin on Blurred Lines by Robin Thicke. I can see why Darynda shared this – it’s hilarious and right up an author’s alley. In case you have not seen it, you absolutely must. Here it is:
After watching this video, I started glancing at what else he has been up to since I listened to him last. That is how I came across this:
So funny, right!? I never really had the crazy email-a-thon friends but some are quite adamant about clogging up my Facebook homepage with loads of useless crap.
Finally, I came across this lovely. Oh. My. Goodness. It is amazing. I think many of you out there will be able to relate to it. In fact, this hit so close to home, I cried laughing so hard while watching it…over and over and over…and showing it to Jason…then watching it again while still cry-laughing.
So that’s the story of what I did one evening a couple of weeks ago. I got reacquainted with an entertainer who, apparently, can still make me laugh. A lot.
Re-discovering Weird Al Yankovic. Just another one of my life’s quirks.
