Teh Awesome

Now that Howie is back, will I get to see a mano-yi-mano showdown between Him and Obama to determine who is really Teh Awesome?

Update: OK, I read that post and wondered how many people will think I mispelled "the" and not get the reference. And then I thought... how long before "teh" actually becomes the correct spelling of "the"? Is this how spelling in the english language got so messed up to begin with? Is it the result of bad copy editing back in the days of scrolls and parchment? Stoked???? I need answers!

Yep. Sloppy monks/scribes and regional variation. The scribes in, say, Cork didn't have much email contact with the scribes in, say, Salzburg, and they couldn't compare blog standards. So, just like their counterparts today, they made it up as they went along, figuring most people most of the time would mostly know what they (thought they) meant. I write teh a lot, but my favorite personal typo is Untied States.
