Many have also questioned our spelling of this category-implying that it may indeed spelled wrong…ya know…”where’s the customary ‘c’ and ‘e’?” Well, we don’t have to defend our spellings to you or any of your other cronies over there on ‘Chauncey Hill’-so shove it! And while you’re out doing that, please also notice that we spell this category the same way everywhere you see it, in order to further justify the sovereignity of category-nation….
Yes…thus is the art of ambivilen…
