As a kid, I absolutely loved Weird Al Yankovic and his music parodies. Yes, I was one of those that bought his cassettes (you heard me, I said cassettes). I even saw his movie, UHF, in the theaters. I found his parodies to be witty and funny.
I recognize Weird Al is an acquired taste. But we all must agree that his latest — Word Crimes — is just what many in the education (and education blogging/social media) community need. Consider the song, and its accompanying video, as Schoolhouse Rock on steroids.
I give Weird Al special props for the multiple visuals of the sentence diagram. But I’m a little disappointed he come si/come sa approach with the Oxford comma. The Oxford comma most definitely is a requirement.
Happy watching, and listening. You won’t be disappointed.
