Weird Al
So unless you've been living under a rock -- and we're talking a very big rock and way deep -- you witnessed the birth of an editorial anthem this week in Weird Al Yankovic's "Word Crimes," a parody of Robin Thicke's not-nearly-as-awesome "Blurred Lines." If you did somehow miss it -- perhaps you were traveling or in a medically induced coma, I don't know -- here's the video in all its glory:

Not only is it one of the greatest songs (and videos) ever, it's garnered Al mainstream coverage via Rolling Stone, E!, the Wall Street Journal, Billboard, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, and more. It's also gotten (as of this writing) just shy of 5 million views on YouTube. Perhaps the song really touched a nerve. Perhaps it's a rallying cry to all the word nerds out there to rise up and take back the English language!

Thy will be done, Al. Thy will be done.
