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?

I is not an English major, but this is great! Love Weird Al!
