"Weird Al" Yankovic - Word Crimes

  • 1
Absolutely one of my favorites of all time.

There is something just wrong about an American criticising people for their English (a canuck maybe...)

"familiarise" is NOT spelled with a zed!!

No mention of idots who write "you're" as "your" ?

I was also very fond of the TV series "Numb3rs" :D

Joking aside, that's a very catchy tune and I do love the Feychild style stick figure punctuation symbols :D

Of course not. It's spelled with a Z! :-) (So is "criticize", BTW.)

The thing is, the original of this song was SO AWFUL that Weird Al has once again salvaged a thing of beauty from the dungheap, just as he did with "Achy Breaky Song". It's nice to have non-date-rape lyrics for that very catchy tune.
