Weird Al Yankovic has a new album out and one of his parodies is just hilarious. He did a spoof of Robin Thicke's raunchy and controversial song "Blurred Lines." Weird Al renamed the song "Word Crimes" and made it into a rant about poor grammar and improper word use. The song is from Weird Al's new album, Mandatory Fun.

Weird Al warns that if can't write in the proper way and you don't know how to conjugate, you may end up being mocked online. In the video we learn quite a bit about Weird Al's pet peeves when it comes to proper grammar and word usage. He even has a position on the use of the Oxford Comma (he opposes it). So what else is he ranting about? In the video:

This has got to be the most enjoyable grammar lesson we have ever seen. It's a wonderful thing. Take a look:
