“Weird Al" Yankovic's 'Word Crimes" Is Word-Nerdy

Posted By on Fri, Jul 18, 2014 at 3:01 PM

If Henry can put up a video from "Weird Al's" new album, "Mandatory Fun," by God, so can I. It's "Word Crimes." Think Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines." Spoiler alert: I'm posting a few lines from the song after the "Continue reading" link.

Lines from "Word Crimes" (Warning: These could be on the test):

It's a good tiiiiiime
2 lern some grammer.
Now did I stammer?

———-

You really needa
Full time proof reader,
You dum mouth breather.

———-

I read your email.
It's quite apparent
Your grammar's errant,
You're incoherent.

———-

[And, for commenters out there everywhere]:
I saw your blog post.
It's really fantastic.
(That was sarcastic.)
