Weird Al Yankovic’s Word Crimes
Here’s one for the grammar nazis!
Weird Al Yankovic, a man who was omnipresent in my youth but who now pops up only occasionally, has taken his signature parody style and smacked Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines fair in its punctuation marks.
I’m one of the few people that couldn’t see what all the fuss was about in Thicke’s song, mostly because the old lesbian in me was too busy appreciating the filmclip. Weird Al’s version might not have quite such spectacular scenery, but it’s still pretty damn catchy.
Besides, some might say the correct use of grammar is totally sexy anyway…
