Copy editors will love Weird Al's new song
OK, copy editors. Put down the red pencils. Loosen the top buttons of your cardigans. Give "Weird Al" Yankovic three minutes and 46 seconds of your day, and in his new song "Word Crimes," he will discuss:
- The difference between "less" and "fewer"
- How to discern between "its" and "it's"
- Why irony and coincidence are different things
Oh, and he takes on "literally," too.
