(CNN) - Alfred Matthew Yankovic has come a long way from the teen chopping up '70s disco hits for the Dr. Demento radio comedy hour.
Over the years, he's taught us everything from where to buy quilts at a discount price to what teen spirit smells like.
But now, "Weird Al" is no longer just doing funny spoofs of Madonna and Michael Jackson; he's educating the Internet on how to properly use the Oxford comma.
While he's sold more than 12 million albums, earned three Grammys and racked up four gold records, Yankovic may be at his artistic peak with the sublime new single, "Word Crimes." Yankovic has turned Robin Thicke's not so humble brag about his dangling participle into something that could follow in the grand tradition of "Schoolhouse Rock" and, he says, "ostensibly be part of a school curriculum."
