I haz teh skillz

In what could easily have descended into a free for all, name calling, I'm right, you're wrong thread in the comment section of a Fox News story about evolution, user dEEzNutZ1979 stopped everyone dead in their tracks by responding to user GodGunzAndGutz's comment that "theirs monkeys and theirs people. Monkeys aint never been people and people aint never been monkeys".

dEEzNutz1979's now infamous comment "There is a location, their is the possessive case of the personal pronoun they, and they're is a contraction for they are. Until such time as you learn proper grammar and spelling I cannot take anything you say seriously" stopped the debate so quickly you could figuratively hear the crickets chirping.

Commentators on both sides of the argument immediately acknowledged that dEEz had won the internet.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
