    I saw this on a FB link. Hilarious! How many people will be showing it in class this year?

    I loved this when I watched it recently, but isn't there one word in it that is going to be a problem in school?

    No, though it could be mistaken for one.
    Cunning = slyly clever
    Linguist = expert in language and its structure

    I really, really hope third graders aren't going to make THAT connection!

    I love it too and am thinking of showing it...there is just the one part at the end about "Weird Al has a big...dic-tionary" that could be questionable, but honestly, at the high school level, I think it should be fine...what do you all think? Would you play it in class?
