The Weird Al video is making the rounds. I thought it might be a perfect treat for a Wednesday:

Sentence diagramming
Having been educated in the 1960's and 1970's, I am a master sentence diagrammer. Putting those verbals up on stilts and drawing the dotted line between two clauses. . . I've always loved doing that. I don't teach it. . . as I am well aware of the research on the relationship between formal teaching of grammar and writing, but as an abstract language exercise, I've always liked doing it.

I was very gratified to discover a mistake in WAY's sentence diagramming! I watched it a few times and paused to study it. But overall. . . fun video.
