A Weird And Welcome Addition To My Wall

Last May, Weird Al Yankovic performed at the Kirby Center as a part of The Unfortunate Return Of The Ridiculously Self-Indulgent Ill-Advised Vanity Tour.  It's a pretty awesome tour in which Weird Al performed only the comedy songs from his albums that aren't parodies of popular songs.  We weren't able to make that night, but we did see one of the earlier shows on this tour.  It was on March 18th, 2018 at the American Music Theater in Lancaster, and it was a hell of a lot of fun.

My dad goes to Kirby Fest every year, and one of the things they do to raise money for the theater is to auction off memorabilia for the concerts and other events that they've had there over the past year.  This year, he won this autographed Weird Al poster and surprised me with it a couple of weeks ago as a present.  I've listen to and sang and laughed along with his songs since I was five years old, so having an autographed poster from the tour where I saw him perform live for the first time is pretty awesome.  My dad is a good dude!
