Word Crimes Online R Superciliass

My heading is to stir Weird Al.

Below is a funny and clever video by Weird Al Yankovic.  So I better think clearly about how I write now.  My only objection in his video is to clowns.  It is derrogatory, demeaning, decadent, deliberate, downright debilitating, disrespectful, doubtful, doppy (whoops word crime) dopey but sob sadly true.  Ha ha.

He has made clear the word crimes on-line and sought to re-educate for dummies not dummy’s.  I noted even in Government publications the headings are in lower case.  It is amazing how the language is changing (full stop).  In my view it is because people have become busy, they don’t read as much and they just truncate language.  What it does is it truncates meaning and can open up many misunderstandings online.  Moreover, people can ignore others and not respond, so you can’t see body language to be able to know what that means.  The English language has been changed overtime.  I remember when I was at school, I didn’t read until I was 17 and I did not understand grammar.  My understanding today is still average.  It didn’t make sense to me.  So perhaps we invent a new language that is phonetically logical and flows.  Some languages, I am told, are far deeper than English and allow broader expression.  Do we actually think about what we are saying? Are we able to bring emotion into it.  I know as a poet my words cannot even grasp the depth of what I feel to convey.  So with that let’s go to gorgeous Weird Al, good to see he is still around.
