Louis C.K.'s Autograph Most Awesome Thing Ever (PHOTO)

If anyone had a better 2011 than Louis C.K., it was probably his fans: between Season 2 of "Louie," a bunch of smart and funny articles, and a hilarious standup special for only $5, fans got more than they could ask for from the insanely prolific comedian.

But one fan got the ultimate gift on New Year's Day when the comedian wrote him a personal autograph that's characteristically hilarious and genuine. Reddit user dshlosmnstr explained that he got the autograph at his father's shop in Brookline, Massachusetts, where C.K. had stepped in to be fitted for glasses. Check out the photo and thread for C.K.'s fine words of wisdom.
