Word Crimes

I’m not sure about all of you, but I’ve been a huge “Weird Al” Yankovic fan for years. His newest singles have been released in the past few days, and they’re better than some of the parodies he’s written in years. One new single deserved its own blog post: Word Crimes. It is a bit crude, as we’ve come to expect from “Weird Al,” but it’s so funny. In addition to poking fun at people who intentionally make poor word and spelling choices, there are a few grammar lessons thrown in in cleaver ways. Enjoy!
