If Your Grammar Needs Attention

Weird Al Yankovic, the 80s parody king, has released his (probably) final album, and has been featuring a song per day for 8 days.  I couldn't resist this one: Word Crimes.

Know when it's less or it's fewer
like people who were
never raised in a sewer
Hire some cunning linguist to
help you distinguish
what is proper English
As for "final album", I saw an interview with Al this morning, and he said it was his last album on a contract he's been under since the '80s, and while he intends to keep writing songs, albums are probably not the direction the world is going.  IMO, look for Al to start selling singles rather than albums, probably through iTunes or something setup more for direct sale to consumers.
