Word nerd

A friend of mine from college posted a couple of videos on Facebook, each showing Weird Al Yankovich repairing American society’s poor grammar, and I simply had to share them here.  Also, shout out to my mother-in-law, who carries a rainbow of Sharpies (clickable, so she can wield them one-handed!) in her purse in case she needs to beat Weird Al to the punch and correct signage errors herself.  She is the scourge of the local Wal-Mart, and I love her for it!

While I’m posting linguistic nerdom, I have to mention that I’ve been binging today on the awesome “Ask the Editor” videos at Merriam-Webster’s website, which in turn have made me nostalgic for one of my favorite programs on NPR, “On Words.”
