My 7th grade English teacher ruined this by pausing it everyday and making us examine each new mistake.

I once corrected someone who said “I could care less” on an online game. They then replied, “I couldn’t care less.” At least they learned.

Another parody so much better and more clever than the original...

The one thing that I don't agree with; leaving out Oxford commas. With the Oxford comma: We invited the strippers, JFK, and Stalin. This means, JFK, Stalin and some strippers were invited. Without the Oxford comma: We invited the strippers, JFK and Stalin. This means JFK and Stalin, who are strippers, we're invited. Oxford commas have a good reason for existing. Also yes, I stole the example from the somewhere in the internet.

and there are nearly 8K poeple who've taken the time to downvote this. Why? Whether you followed or not, was it not captivating of your attention? Do you just like to pee in the general pool for some reason?

I've been listening to this song, and I love the bat family. If someone made a video with this song for Jason Todd, I would be SO HAPPY! ...Because he loves literature.

I literally think this is the coolest song I've ever heard! Any one think so to?

This is the one comment section on YouTube that will have very few grammar or spelling mistakes.
Any English teacher that doesn't start their school year with this song is not living there best life.

I just noticed at the Irony part that it's a reference to Alanis Morriset's Ironic. Rain on wedding day! Subtle joke. Its at 2:41

Good grammar is key to correct writing. The problem is most people don't study English in depth and are used to casual, informal language. Al should know this since he uses words in the video like "wanna". Huh? Al, do you mean "want to"? Teachers don't "wanna" go to school, they "want to" go to school.

There are so many things wrong with this comment, aside from begging for likes. *You didn't capitalize first letter of the sentence. *You need a comma after like. *You didn't capitalize the i in I'll. *You need an apostrophe in I'll. *You need a period at the end of the sentence. Also, this video is over 4 years old, so the chances of your comment even being seen by that many people is quite slim.

Jonathan Robertson (6 days ago)
Love this, and agree with almost all of it, but the use of quotes for "emphasis"... oh crap... I just did it. Hmm.. But using quotes outside of indicating a conversation has a useful and legitimate purpose in designating something questionable.
Chris (4 days ago)
+Jonathan Robertson Thank you. Best to you as well.
Jonathan Robertson (4 days ago)
+Chris Hey Chris... that was what I was trying to get at. Full disclosure: I thought the idea of quoting the word emphasis was a funny way to burn the point. It was my attempt to be clever. And like almost always, resulted in abject failure. Language is a living thing, so it progresses, but it is also the tool with which we think, so I admire your tenacity to not let it get sloppy. Best to you.
Chris (5 days ago)
+Jonathan Robertson The way you used it in this reply, is not as an emphasis. It is implying that someone SAID what I wrote was a form of logic, which it is, therefore the quotation marks were actually used correctly in your reply.
Jonathan Robertson (5 days ago)
+Chris You have convinced me then. Your "logic" is impeccable.
Chris (5 days ago)
No, it does not. They are called quotes for a reason. When you used them in your comment, you were quoting him, not emphasizing anything. Maybe you need to look up what emphasis means.

Wow. Yes! This was an amazing video. Even though I'm super bad at grammar and all that, I can at least do the basics. Such as apostrophes. I'm also partially annoyed at people who text using "r" instead of "are".

I literally 💓 this toon...🎶 But Al, an ironic situation is a coincidence in Reverse of what you expected. So it's still a coincidence ....just in reverse. What about the apostrophe that's supposed to go after the word to show ownership "Possession " and they put it before the S as in Builder's Warehouse Shouldn't it be builders' ⁉️⁉️⁉️🤣🤣🤣🤔

Great song! And here's a fact: people who nod their heads with a sense of superiority as they listen to this song SCREW UP JUST AS BADLY when it comes to other aspects of English word usage and grammar. Nobody's perfect! And remember -- it's very nice to help people correct their writing when they ask you, but it's pure, unadulterated snobbery to correct their speech, so long as you understand what they are saying.

My English teacher chose to present this to the class as he just couldn't make the lesson interesting. However, the bell rang before we could finish it so I went on a hunt for it. I never wanted to send the internet a video so badly before.

"Word Crimes" Everybody shut up Everyone listen up! If you can't write in the proper way If you don't know how to conjugate Maybe you flunked that class And maybe now you find That people mock you on-line (Everybody wise up!) Okay, now here's the deal I'll try to educate ya Gonna familiarize You with the nomenclature You'll learn the definitions Of nouns and prepositions Literacy's your mission And that's why I think it's a good time To learn some grammar (What!?) Now, did I stammer? Work on that grammar You should know when It's "less" or it's "fewer" Like people who were Never raised in a sewer I hate these word crimes Like "I could care less" That means you do care At least a little Don't be a moron You'd better slow down And use the right pronoun Show the world you're no clown Everybody wise up! Say you got an "it" Followed by apostrophe, "s" Now what does that mean? You would not use "it's" in this case As a possessive (no no no) It's a contraction (yeah yeah yeah) What's a contraction? Well, it's a shortening of a word, or a group of words by omission of a sound or letter Okay, now here's some notes Syntax you're always mangling No "x" in "espresso" Your participle's danglin' But I don't want your drama If you really wanna Leave out that Oxford comma Just keep in mind that "be", "see", "are", "you" Are words, not letters Get it together Use your spell-checker You should never Write words using numbers Unless you're seven Or your name is Prince Everybody wise up! I hate these word crimes (I hate them crimes) You really need a (I hate them crimes) Full-time proofreader (I mean those crimes) You dumb mouth-breather Well, you should hire Some cunning linguist To help you distinguish What is proper English Everybody wise up! One thing I ask of you Time to learn your homophones is past due Learn to diagram a sentence too Always say "to whom" Don't ever say "to who" And listen up when I tell you this I hope you never use quotation marks for emphasis You finished second grade I hope you can tell If you're doing good or doing well Everybody wise up! You'd better figure out the difference Irony is not coincidence And I thought that you'd gotten it through your skull What's figurative and what's literal Oh but just now you said You literally couldn't get out of bed (What!?) That really makes me want to literally Smack a crowbar upside your stupid head Everybody wise up! I read your e-mail It's quite apparent Your grammar's errant You're incoherent Saw your blog post It's really fantastic That was sarcastic (Oh, psych!) 'Cause you write like a spastic I hate these word crimes Everybody wise up! Your prose is dopey Think you should only Write in emoji Oh, you're a lost 'cause Go back to pre-school Get out of the gene pool Try your best to not drool Never mind I give up Really now I give up Go away!
