Thursday Funny: Word Crimes

July 17, 2014

I learned a lot in college. How to write a gripping lead on a news story. How to get along with a roommate. Why you shouldn’t use boiling water to melt the ice on your windshield.

One of the biggest lessons I learned, however, is that a Weird Al Yankovic album/CD is not an investment in sound. Oh sure, the songs are funny and all and they make you laugh the first three or four times you hear them, but honestly, how many times can you listen to “Nature Trail to Hell in 3-D,” “Another One Rides the Bus,” “My Bologna” and “Polka Face” before you’ve had enough.

Ah, but a Weird Al video, now there’s a thing of beauty…and this is one of his latest. You don’t have to be an English major to love this one, but it helps…..

And, if you haven’t heard the song he’s parodying, here’s the original, “Blurred Lines.”
