A complete song telling the story of Weird Al's life, shown in seven different MOCs.
About this creation
The idea for this MOC came from my many years of listening to Weird Al's excellent music. I always imagined the scenes to the song, but never actually watched the show. When I decided to create this MOC, I chose not to watch the actual show - I wanted to create simply from my imagination. I did take the idea for the last scene from the show, however; the Weird Al Show does take place in his cave.
Oh, this is a story 'bout a guy named Al,
Who lived in the sewer with his hampster pal.
But the sanitation workers didn't really approve,
So he packed up his accordion and headed to move
To a city in Ohio, where he lived in a tree
And he worked in a nasal decongestant factory,
And he played on the company bowling team,
And every single night he had a strange recurring dream,
Where he was wearing lederhosen in a vat of sour cream,
But that's really not important to the story.
Then the very next year he met a dental hygenist with a spatula tatooed on her arm.
But they didn't stay in touch, and he lost her number,
Then he got himself a job on a tater tot farm.
And he spent his life savings on a split-level cave
Twenty miles below the surface of the earth.
And he really makes a might-fine jelly-bean-and-pickle sandwich,
For what it's worth.
One day, Al was in the forest trying to get a tan,
When he heard the tortured screaming of a funny little man,
He was caught in a bear trap and Al set him free.
And the guy that he rescued was as grateful as could be.
And it turns out he's a big-shot producer on TV.
So he gives Al a contract and whaddya know...
Now he's got his very own Weird Al Show!

I would like to give special credit to my wife, who took all the pictures. I love you, honey. Why you love me after this project, I'll never know.
I just found this one, and, not remembering it from before (don't be insulted, my wife was distracting me with blather about chiropractors the whole time I was reading it), I went to post, when what do my wandering appear, but my very own comment, from April this year!
Merry Christmas, and please keep up the excellent work.
