So I was at a “Weird Al” Yankovic concert standing right next to the stage, and he was playing all the songs from Mandatory Fun, and I got backstage to meet him.

Then the phone rings. And that was when I realized I had fallen asleep while my boombox was still on, playing his newest album Mandatory Fun, just barely two feet away from me.

And so it was just a dream. A fucking dream. And even then in my head I was singing along with all those songs, having no idea it wasn’t real.

Boy was I pissed.

It was my dad that had phoned me, and I bitched him out for disrupting the most amazing dream I have ever had, lol.



Weird Al Yankovic once asked Nirvana for permission to parody “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and their first question was‘“Will it be about food?”. He explained that “Smells Like Nirvana” would be about how nobody could understand their lyrics., They agreed that it sounded funny and granted permission. [x]
