Press One for English

This video was sent to me today by a family member. Here's what the (forwarded) email said:


Subject: Number 1 song in USA

You have to watch this. It is the No.. 1 song played all over the country. Over 8.0 million hits on YouTube. You will not hear it on the radio or on the news. I wonder why !!????

Spelling and creative punctuation aside, I'm sorry to say that a viral video that people watch for kitsch value does not a #1 song make.

Besides, if you've watched this video you'll understand, I'm not sure this woman actually speaks English. Her pronunciation is truly odd. I think she may be a linguistic terrorist sent to our great nation to sow the seeds of discursive discord. Beware!

The moral of the story: Don't forward emails without some sort of explanatory commentary or a disclaimer.

That is one of the weirdest things I have ever seen. And not in a good way.
