Wierd Al is Always Relevant

I’ve been listening to Wierd Al for 35 years and he never seems to age and be displaced by younger entertainers, as Jay Leno was replaced recently by Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show. His latest parodies business managers who butcher the English language. The Upstart Business Journal describes the creation of the video.

My pet peeve is the use of “on a regular basis”, which can always be replaced by the beautiful English word, “regularly”. The “-ly” suffix added to “regular” produces this beauty, as any elementary schoolchild can attest and many adults forget.
