Breakfast With Laertes

| | Comments (0)
I just rented The Weird Al Show on DVD. It was a Saturday morning kids show in the 90s.

Episode 1 of this show is where I first saw/heard/heard of Barenaked Ladies. Except when Weird Al introduced them, I thought he said "Breakfast With Laertes." They played "Shoebox," and I instantly dug their music.

I don't know why I heard that. I couldn't rewind (no TiVo back then), and watching the DVD now, it seems obvious to me what he actually said. Google shows no other people who mention "Breakfast With Laertes." Maybe I will use it as an album title.

Also, I am the only person Google knows of who used "The December 1sts" to refer to "The Decemberists."
