Weird Al Yankovic was born Alfred Matthew Yankovic in Downey, California, on October 23, 1959.
His career in music began on the day before his sixth birthday, when a door-to-door salesman traveling through Lynwood offered his parents a choice of accordion or guitar lessons at a local music school.
After Barney's brother James meets Nora for the first time, he admits that he doesn't like Nora with Barney if only because her behavior is too reminiscent of their mother, Loretta.
Kevin, in turn, states that it's not too unusual for people to end up with someone like their parent.
In the letter Weird Al receives from young Ted on February 21, 1985, the letter says that he is 8 years old.
In previous episodes it is confirmed that he was born in April of 1978, so the letter should be saying that he is 6 going on 7.

Meanwhile, he claimed that Tom Lehrer, Stan Freberg, Spike Jones, Allan Sherman, Shel Silverstein and Frank Zappa "and all the other wonderfully sick and twisted artists that he was exposed to through the Dr.Demento Radio Show" were the inspirations of his comedic and parody music.See more » Once again I'm starting my review of this episode with the same sentence.Neil Patrick Harris knocks it out if the park once again as Barney Stinson as "How I Met Your Mother" gets back on track.
