“Word Crimes” Rocks Out

“Weird Al” Yankovic’s music video “Word Crimes” is making the YouTube rounds. It’s a fun, clever look at the grammar conundrums, rather like Schoolhouse Rock for the current generation. Check it out.

Think of all the inconsistencies in the English language. Did you mean “it’s” or “its” (it is, or something that belongs to it), “their, they’re or there?” not to mention — which Al doesn’t this time — the differences between American and British word usage and punctuation.
