Nothing lightens a busy week’s load like a grammar lesson.
Hmmm, scratch that. Instead:
Nothing lightens a busy week’s load like “Weird Al” Yankovic.
That’s more like it.
OK, even if you’re not a “Weird Al” fan, you may enjoy his video take on the importance of grammar (didn’t see that coming, did you?)
(And before I forget to ask, how many decades do we have to see “Weird Al” Yankovic in this country before we’re able to simply drop the apostrophes? Odd, don’t you think? Probably a legal name, like somewhere in performance history, there’s already an Equity actor named Weird Al, no apostrophe. Oh well, back to our regularly scheduled programming.)
Here, in one compact video, Al points out a wide variety of the grammatical missteps folks make every day.
Hat tip to Fennemore Craig attorney Chad Mead for alerting me to “Weird Al’s” great public service.
Have a terrific—and wordcrime-free—weekend.Follow @azatty
