Seriously, I’ve listened to it at least three times today alone, and I’m convinced this is the only good thing to come out of that “Blurred Lines” song. You know, the one with the rapey lyrics. I’ve never heard the original myself, but I looked up the lyrics to see why people were complaning. NOPE, not listening to it.
But Weird Al’s parody is wonderful and should be played in every English classroom. It’s like Schoolhouse Rock for the 21st century. (Now there’s something I’d throw a ton of money at.) I can’t listen to this song without singing and dancing along because it’s Weird Al and grammar and making a terrible song awesome.
Also, there are dancing punctuation marks. Sweet.

That is fantastic. I saw you tweet about this yesterday (was it yesterday?), but I didn’t look up what you were saying until today because, you know, now I could just follow your link and didn’t have to do any actual work.
Thank you for sharing this. I have a feeling I know what I’ll be doing for the next hour or so. 😀
I’ve listened to that song a zillion times and it never gets old. It really is the best thing.
