Weird Al Yankovic Wants You to Learn Your Grammar in “Word Crimes”

(PCM) The king of song parodies has struck again with his latest single “Word Crimes,” a parody of Robin Thicke’s 2013 summer anthem “Blurred Lines.”

Weird Al debuted “Word Crimes” yesterday as the second of eight videos that he is releasing over eight days in promotion for his newly released album Mandatory Fun, the musician’s fourteenth studio album.

“Word Crimes” parodies Robin Thicke’s “Blurred Lines” song and video, which you’re probably already very familiar with if you were alive and conscious during the summer of 2013.

“Blurred Lines” was inescapable; the song was on every radio station and music video channel, leading it to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 and on to become the longest running number one single of 2013 and the 2010′s, remaining on the top of the Hot 100 for 12 weeks.

“Blurred Lines” also drew a lot of negative attention for its misogynistic stance and “rapey” lyrics.

As of today, “Blurred Lines” has over 327 million views on YouTube.

Taking the incredibly fun and catchy beat and laying down lessons in grammar, Weird Al has succeeded in making the song his own and catching people’s attention: after just one day on YouTube, “Word Crimes” has already gained over 2 million views.

Weird Al revealed on The View on Tuesday that he was inspired to write the song due to the prevalence of text-slang and improper grammar and lack of education in today’s society.

Toddler Assumed To Be Dead Awakens At Her Own Funeral

Toddler-funeral1

(PCM) In a bizarre story out of the Philippines, a 3-year old who was pronounced dead by a local area hospital awoke in her casket at her own funeral.

The 3-year old was initially taken to the hospital after she was suffering from an incredibly high fever for three days. During her time spent in the hospital, the personnel and doctor declared that the toddler had no pulse and was pronounced clinically dead last Saturday at around 9 am.

The toddlers body was released to her parents so they could begin the funeral preparations the following day and when a family friend opened up the casket to adjust the remains, those in attendance witnessed the incredible sight of the toddlers head move.

The family was in complete shock and the toddler was immediately removed from the casket and cradled by her family in the church. She was immediately given water, taken to the hospital and then brought home.

 

Source say that the child was still comatose, however she is being taking to a more well-equipped hospital for further evaluations and treatment.

Fast-food retailer Burger King has come up with a truly amazing way to relate with all the various generations and ideologies of its’ customer base, with the introduction of the ‘The Proud Whopper’.

‘The Proud Whopper’ is exactly the same as the ‘Traditional Whopper’, only the outside wrapper has changed. The new rainbow-colored wrapper features the touching and thought-provoking message “We Are All The Same Inside”. In fact, Burger King has even changed their own slogan of “Have It Your Way” to “Be Your Own Way”, as a wonderful way to encourage us all to be comfortable with our own various forms of self-expression.

‘The Proud Whopper’ was introduced during San Francisco Gay Pride 2014 and sales of ‘The Proud Whopper’ will be donated to the Burger King McLamore Foundation, for scholarships benefiting LGBT college-bound, high school seniors graduating in spring 2015.

Burger King put together a video that showcased customers reactions to ‘The Proud Whopper’ and the results are quite emotional. The best part is watching the moment when the customers reach the realization that ‘The Proud Whopper’ truly is, exactly the same as the ‘Traditional Whopper’, despite their best efforts to search for a difference.

After reading the message on the wrapper that reminds us that we are all the same inside, customers appeared to be quite inspired and Burger King has done a fabulous job at supporting their variety of customers with their viewpoint on equality and equal rights.

‘The Proud Whopper’ definitely has people talking and instead of mindlessly chowing down fast-food, the campaign and slogan are actually making them stop for a second and think, which is always a good thing, especially in this day and age.
