I hate these word crimes too, Al

In three minutes and forty-five seconds of pure genius, Weird Al Yankovic has managed to collect nearly all of my pet peeves as an editor and used the sharpest blade known to man (sarcasm) to belittle any and all parties guilty of bad grammar.

Thank you, Al. I couldn’t have said it (and certainly couldn’t have sung it) better myself. Instead of correcting offenders in the future, I’ll just sit them down and play your video. They will be educated as well as entertained. And I’ll save an awful lot of time.

This is your magnum opus.
