    I saw Weird Al when the Monkees closed for him back in 1987. It was the first concert I ever when to. :laugh: I bought The Essential "Weird Al" Yankovic CD for my husband...two discs of essential Weird Al, of course.

    White and Nerdy is hilarious.


    I once had a thousand desires, but in my one desire to know you, all else melted away.
