Weird Al does it again with ‘Word Crimes’

Monday, Weird Al Yankovic released “Tacky,” his parody song and video of Pharrell Williams’ “Happy.” Yesterday, he’s released his parody of Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines,” an indictment of sloppy syntax called “Word Crimes.” The parody, written in the voice of an angry father lecturing about today’s most common grammatical mistakes, includes lines like “You should know when/It’s ‘less’ or it’s ‘fewer’/Like people who were/Never raised in a sewer.” Weird Al also notes that “‘I could care less’/That means you do care/At least a little.”
